Nice bumpers!

The only fails I see are cleanliness and excessive use of All-Terrains. Get some good Mud Terrains on that thing and get it dirty!

Look for Waynesville,NC on the map.The HD place is on US74 there.I read they were no longer an authorized shop so they may not show on the corporate map anymore

Pillion not wearing gloves, Rider has no eye protection at present. Upper body is possibly across the line. Also, the high beam is on, although that may or may not qualify as a fail (it does to me).

BWM headlights are designed as to not effect your night vision. High beams are not a problem.

Oh, I like that cap. How are you liking it, and which model is it? I've got a hard cap on my truck right now but would really like something that's easier to remove.

Softtopper is awesome. I can roll up the sides & the dogs can ride in the back. You can roll the whole thing down & forward in seconds like a boat canopy if you need to carry something big. I installed it by myself in about 30 minutes & that was with me reading everything twice.

Just what we need, another "I'm not on my bike" cage sticker.

They serve a nice purpose though, it seems those are the drivers that are more likely to be a jackass to a rider.

I like that, a really cool pic. Even without JVB (or because of that? Heh, heh! )

I was up there on Saturday with my girlfriend. We rode from Athens to Tellico Plains, across the Skyway and into Robbinsville. WAY too much traffic around the Dragon so we skipped that and rode to Cherokee and then on to Mt. Mitchell. Then back into Asheville for dinner and down to Franklin, NC for the night. There are so many better roads than the Dragon, if you'd just venture out and do a little wandering.

It was cold and rainy most of the day.

Oh, and I hate trikes.
