Looks like it was a lotus eleven.

I don't know how many of you have ridden sport bikes in leathers, but that's the classic look of some slow ass vehicle / traffic / cop ahead of him making him wait.

Jesus, it's not that difficult to interpret, is it?

I have to go to the Daily Times in Blount County to find any info: http://www.thedailytimes.com/archive...ext=motorcycle

• Sept. 28: Sean R. McMillin, 24, of Cherry Point, N.C., was killed in a motorcycle wreck near Mile Marker 7. He was a lance corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps, stationed in North Carolina.
• June 15: Harley Hogue, 53, of Naples, Fla., was killed near Mile Marker 8 after losing control of his motorcycle while negotiating a sharp right-hand curve.
• June 6: John W. Henson, of Carencro, La., was killed when he tried to negotiate a sharp right-hand curve while riding his 2006 Honda motorcycle near Mile Marker 4 and the vehicle crossed into the southbound lane and left the road.

Oct. 22: Judy Hatley Harris, 62, of Wilmington, was riding a 1996 Yamaha southbound behind her husband’s motorcycle.Harris cut into a wide curve on Mile Marker 4, and her motorcycle dropped off the right hand side of the road and could not recover, according Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper Cory Russell, who investigated.
The motorcycle laid down and struck a stump, causing Harris to go about 75 feet down an embankment, Russell said.
Oct. 24 not on the Dragon but just north of it: A Sweetwater man was killed Wednesday afternoon in a motorcycle accident on U.S. 129.
According to a report from Trooper Philip Warren of the Tennessee Highway Patrol, the accident occurred at approximately 4:27 p.m. about a mile from Highway 72.
Frederick Wright, 68, was traveling northbound on U.S. 129 on a 1996 Harley-Davidson at about 50 miles per hour. While negotiating a right-hand curve, he lost control and left the roadway on the right side, entering a ditch and overturning, according to THP.. According to a report from Trooper Philip Warren of the Tennessee Highway Patrol, the accident occurred at approximately 4:27 p.m. about a mile from Highway 72.
Only one of those was on a weekend, so maybe it's safer to only ride the Dragon on Saturday and Sunday?
Once again September was a month when the Marine Corps lost more Marines in motorcycle crashes than they did in combat.
