To complete this, also eliminate contingency fees. Straight billed hours only.

It's all about alien visitors from space I tell you.

We're just like Uncle Miltons Ant Farm, only on a larger scale.

Those aliens from Roswell were just doing a fly-by to see what was up and had a mishap.... then we reverse engineered computers and that ABS shit from 'em.

I swear, that's the deal!

Is the tail of the dragon the only good road east of the Rocky mountains?

Sorry, but I don't get it. There's 100 roads within a hour or two of my house (and you can take fun roads to get to the really fun roads). Why is the only road we hear about this one?

WTF?

That's it. Nothing to see here. Pretty much just slab it to the Dragon, hop off the interstate, ride 10 miles of twisties, then hop back on the interstate and head home.

Because those that know the better roads keep their mouths shut, so their favorite roads don't turn into the next circus show. We hear of Angles crest and the rock store and a few others, so we could make the same assumptions.

Deals gap has had a lot of promotion from businesses, to bring people there. Heck I was at Major MC show in Toronto and they had a booth there, promoting the GAP!

Thousands of miles of roads as good or better, without the fanfare. In fact a NC friend called me last night and said he got chased by a guy on a bike on one of our little gems. They passed him going the other way, and he turned around to catch them. Why, well he wanted to know how they found HIS favorite road, as he had not seen any other bikes on it and he rides 200 miles a couple times a month to get to it.

And come to think of it, I don't remember seeing any other bikes on it either the numerous times I rode it. Longer, twice the turns of the GAP, no traffic, and good pavement, and don't ask where, because I will not tell.

Hell, I should scout out one of these back roads and throw up a shanty little convenience store. I'll think of a clever name, design some stickers and throw together a website with pictures of yahoos riding by on the wrong side of the road. I'll be rich!

Just don't do it around here. We're trying to keep the riff raff on 129 and off of the better roads.

As far as trying to capitalize on other pieces of pavement, there is already "The Snake" "The Diamondback" and a few others trying to promote their slices of pavement, but the Dragon has a few years head start.

"The Snake", near "The Rock Store" in Malibu was a squid magnet even before I rode there for the first time in 1975 on a CB350.

The only difference is that nowadays instead of broken mirrors, busted chrome turn signals, and road rashed squids littering the shoulders, it's plastic and carbon fiber bodywork, aluminum radiator bits, and eviscerated guts oozing out of shredded leather one piece suits, because the bike speeds are so much higher.

But what do I know, I'm not an MSF certified rider.

Then silence is an option. Wise one at that.

Too many good roads around here for me to choose from. Nobody takes my picture on them either...
