Definite fail, no question.

If she had leaned with him, he would.not have had to push the bike over as far. My wife used to do the same thing.

I think he is thanking the driver of the van for using one of the pull overs on the Dragon. I always signal the considerate drivers that pull over for me.

I love coming to this thread, but today I open it up and I have to go back four pages to find a picture of a dumbass on the gap. The "ADV" in ADV Rider does not stand for "Advice". Save it for one of the literally ten thousand "ATGATT" or "Riding Advice" threads, and go pontificate somewhere else, everyone knows Old Guys know best, thats how you got to be so old, etc etc. Now post some damn pictures.

I dont care if these are reposts, I like them, and they are actually from the gap.

Yeah! Man, that's engaged riding. I'll assume there's armor under those pants.

I believe that van is from Minnesota so the driver may be a little freaked out by curves in the road - probably needed a break from turning.
