While the contract manufacturing is often done in China the contract manufacturing companies are not Chinese. And they are quite advanced when it comes to quality.

Yes there is. I'll get a pic of it next time I go through. It's near the bottom where the road to the power house branches off. I'll bet there is a break in the double yellow there.

One of the photographers was set up there last Sunday.

Yes, you are correct, but when I think of the gap I think of the gas station to the overlook.

It's true that the V-Max (the first generation) didn't handle good. I know that, but I think this one is exaggerating it a bit.
