this is probably a re-post, but it's well done.

Yep, that's definitely 205, but it still puts a lump in my throat when they give it to him.

Me on my FZ1 following Al on his R1 going down Mesa Grande in San Diego County.

Al didn't quite make it to the end.

Brings back lot of memories. I had a 850 Commando in '72, never forget that glorious exhaust note. I used to flog the thing, couple of friends had the new Honda 750, and a Ducati, they couldnt keep up with the Norton though.

We all make mistakes, we all have room for improvement. That being said, that has to be the worst body positioning I've ever seen. That guy just fookin' scared the crap out of me. I wouldn't want to ride in the same time zone as that guy.

Hah. Glad somebody said it. I was thinking it, but figured it's a ***video*** thread, not the Killboy Photo thread.

Oh, Al's fine. In fact he rode home after we got his bike back on the road.

Al's idea of a fun ride is somewhat different than mine. We have not ridden together in quite awhile.
