Or the douche nozzle on the BMW that did not want to get passed on a twisty mountain road by an Electra Glide... I guess pulling over to let others by only applies to 'Hardleys'.

Does Stillie know you're talking about him in this manner? Guess we'll be dragging the katoom down for Donovan next time we go to visit my sister in Tampa so that he and Stillie can go hit Croom together.

Those are BMW R1200RT-P's -- the police ("Authority" in BMW-speak) model. Front/rear crash bars, thin "City" saddlebags, solo seat with radio/trunk on the rear, high front light mounts, certified accurate speedo, etc. "Stock" for an RT-P, not the civilian R1200RT.

Hopefully me, momma, and the boy will be around in late October for about a month. But in my business that is subject to change..........at any second.

Sucks I missed Still when he was over in MI at the dunes. But baby, momma, dogs, house, work...........pretty much in that order, take priority! With the bikes way down.........the KTM has been on stands for a week for five hours worth of work....

And beer makes everything better young lady..........like you do not know this considering who your significant other is....

The crash bars on most motor units are meant to be USED. Hot pursuit turns to foot pursuit, bike can be dropped on a flat surface with no damage. Notice the bags are nicely protected as well.
That makes sense.

Hopefully they were off catching stuff like this:

Easy peasy.
Wisdom and common sense have no place here......maybe down below.

Courtesy is decidedly in short supply.

It's been an interesting year, but I'm good. You?

But of course. In all fairness, I was responding to a blanket generalization.

I agree. Saw a guy take a woman's purse the other day. I almost got in his way but I didn't want to be discourteous so I moved over to let him pass. It's just good karma
We have our share of idiots too. I have lived in Floriduh a couple of times. When it comes to riders/drivers, Floriduh has more than it's share of bad ones. Many of the better riders wised up and moved to the mountains up here.

Not sure what the second part of your post means, would you care to enlighten me?

When I was on Mulholland on Labor Day a HD pulled over for the Toyota pickup in front of me but promptly pulled back in the lane before I could pass :( That guy was riding even slower than I do, good thing I only had to suffer about a mile before he turned off to take the less-twisty way back to PCH.

I have to wonder whether he didn't pull over because I wasn't riding his ass (I've got a thing about following distance...) or because he couldn't see me despite my winking headlamp because of his ridiculous novelty mirrors. I hate novelty mirrors. I briefly had an HD when my step-father died and was planning on getting rid of the useless mirrors promptly, lost that bike though but that's another story...
