It's a really awesome road and there are lots of other really awesome roads around there, but I'd never be on it on a weekend these days.

Techincal refers to the nature of the turns many of the turns have radius changes and elevation changes.
My God this is beginnig to sound a little like DOGMA. What happened to let the rider decide? When you want how you want..... how is that not DOGMA. "My way or the highway" so to speak... Oh I get it you really don't mind "control freaks" so long as you are the "control freak"...

Developing disciplined and sytematic techniques for safe bike control is outside your paradigm.

Not only does WANK spring to mind but WANKER is the only way to describe your prescibed method of "rider decide" tuition.

That or it's time for a visit to the Optician.
That's what I get for looking fast, seeing the head, and not really paying attention beyond that.

I will maintain that I absolutely love 1200GSs, it makes me feel not quite so bad about my pig's weight.

Canadian 2012 V-Strom 650 Adventure model (includes luggage). In the U.S. the Adventure is black. Both countries had the regular V-Strom 650 in orange. Canada also has the 650 Expedition model in orange with different luggage and some other different accessories.

A coworker of mine crashed today in the Deals Gap area. The info I got was 'he was headed to Ghost Town HD, coming down the mountain, almost there'.

Anyone with local knowledge translate that for? Trying to figure out where they are.
