Stop posting the pictures of the broken legs. Makes me remember my own broken leg. I didn't break it on a motorcycle though, I rode some tar paper off the roof of the garage. I've decided riding tar paper is more dangerous than riding a motorcycle. I've been severely injured 100% of the times I've ridden tar paper and less than 0.1% of the time I've ridden a motorcycle.

So as a recap, more photos, less broken legs. Don't ride tar paper off the roof.

Brit is a GREAT girl and a hoot to hang out with. I was once upon a time a stunt rider and had the pleasure of her company a few times.

It is a Hoosier dirt tire with the edges shaved round, so it will turn(a little).

Give the guy a break.

He's from Michigan. Prolly the only state to compete with Florida for lowest number of turns.

As they say in Florida: "11 turns in 318 miles."

Michigan's not so bad if you know where to go. Ohio's mostly straight line until you get to where the glacier stopped down south by the Ohio River. The reason for the straight roads was that they were surveyed as the Northwest Territory before many settlers came. So most roads follow section lines. Many of the exceptions in MI are those roads that follow old Indian and wagon trails and rivers.

Too true. Especially compared to PA, where I did most of my stateside driving....
