No doubt if it was a full face helmet we would be thrown off on what kind of bike it was .. a full face helmet on a .....roadglide??? HD. That happens some but is rare.

That is because BMW riders ride their bikes to the event instead of flying in and taking a limo to the rental agency.

The rest of the state should be nice, though.
You would be very wise to avoid it during the Summer unless you can get up at dawn and ride before the cruisers finish their large breakfasts. It is a good ride from 5AM - 7AM.

That faux chinbar is becoming the rage. I don't get it. I would think if it were there it would just be something to break and grind into your face. Most calim to not be fuctional, I guess if it was functional, I could wrap my head around it a little better. 3/4 or FF, make up your mind. LMAO

YMMV

If I simply couldn't stand it and had to head to that freak parade stretch of road, I'd definitely run it during the dawn hours.

Of course, as as been mentioned numerous other times there are other roads out there which are just as fun, but haven't been tarnished by becoming a playground for idiots.

That's kind of scary. She's not holding on by much. Maybe her ass has a super firm grip on that seat.

Come on down and give me a shout. I'll take you thru and probably not meet another bike.
Cherohala skyway is a must do if you are in the area.

Jerry,


I'll definitely give you a shout when I head that way. Don't know exactly when I'll be out there yet, depends on a few things, but if things go as planned should be some time in June.

Same here. I'm in WNC. We have a few "special" roads we can hit.

A bunch of us on supermotos will be terrorizing the gap and WNC the first week of May. I'll be staying in the Treetops with some guys, others are finding hotels.
