Not exactly my choice for gloves, helmet, gear or bike, but I have to say, he's attacking the corner in a way that most Pirates don't realize can be done. Good job!

I went last Thursday. Did I fail? Go easy, I'm just an off-roader with street tires.

There was a bunch of people on restored Cushman Eagles that day. I had only ever seen 1 before and it was a basket case. They were having a ball and riding everywhere. Saw them on the Cherohala too. Nice area for riding. Glad I went. Didn't seem like 11 miles. It went by rather quickly. Seemed like I was done just as I was getting the hang of it. Rode it in both directions.

Do you consider blocking your head light a fail?

Yes, maybe. If you need a tire tube or jumper cables, you'll be glad you couldn't see my light.

Pic from a few years ago. I was, and still am fairly new to riding, The sidestand ground on the asphalt. I did not realize how close I was to lifting the rear tire. After following this thread now I see the light. FWIW the rear shock was getting soft. It was a different bike after installing the Ohlin unit.

Your visor is partway up, compromising your eye protection.
