It's nice to see the woman behind the helmet, I see the picture with the helmet and Dark Helmet from space balls flashes to mind. Really like the scenery makes me want to go to north California an visit my brother and sister in law. Please keep the pictures coming.

For as big of a safety gear advocate that I am, I guess I'm being a bit of a hypocrite by promoting something as reckless (but fun) as shooting one handed.
I don't advise it, I don't think it's safe and I am most definitely playing with fire.
I get a kick out of doing it, but that's on me.

I'm glad you all enjoy this thread as much as I enjoy contributing to it.
Believe it or not, I think about a lot of you while I'm riding (sad, but true )
An odd, eclectic, wonderful bunch of people you are.
I've made so many great friends, both on and off line and I look forward to making many more.


Riding makes my soul smile.
Thanks for laughing with me along the way.........
How about a helmet cam??

I was going to get a RAM mount, but apparently from my research they don't very well.

The GoPro looks pretty awesome.

Awesome thread, and the perfect bike!

Also, Katie and I are going to Japan on the 3rd, wife does not have vacation time to join us. After we get back how about meeting at the PC for lunch?
Glad you caught her!
Lunch, Of course!!!

Wow, that's scary! Good thing you caught her! That would have scared me to death!

I've had passengers dose off on the back of my bike (scooter is just way to comfortable!) - one jerked awake thinking a car was going to hit us - as I'm lane splitting in dead-stopped traffic, almost caused me to slamn into a car. Another jerked awake in the middle of a long sweeping turn - almost dumped the bike.

My niece is begging me to give her a ride... I have such a hard time telling her no... I can't bare anything happening to her on my watch (or, ever!). There isn't anywhere near enough protection in my eyes for her to ride! (yeah, I see her as my own daughter).

Much to the enjoyment of the locals.
