Recently they've made crossing double lines "reckless driving" regardless of actual circumstances, costing you one of the three points it takes to lose your license, requiring a new drivers test, which is not trivial and far from cheap.

Double lines mean "look out for cops before passing" to me, no way I will let some fucker set my pace because of some paint on the road.
One of the main reasons i love west virginia is their love of passing zones. I've seen some shorter than a semi trailer, If you aren't down a gear and at the ready, you'll miss it.

Ohio on the other hand, If you can't make a pass in a loaded dump truck, they aren't going to break the line for you. Double yellow passes are mandatory if you want to make a reasonable pace on a twisty road.

I'll bet he was pissed! That car was really well done, I'm sure it took hundreds of hours to build it. It was bound to happen sooner or later, just look at all the rubber on the road, it looks like they ran that road 100 times to film it all....that's a LOT of drifts to get right on a pretty tight course! I would love to ever have a chance to drive like that!

The donette stuffed in his mouth with the cop uniform on, really was funny shit! I hope they do another video like that one!

My one-and-only visit was mid-week. Don't remember the time of day. The road was fairly quiet and would have been a fun ride except for the long streaks of cooking oil through every single corner. I don't know who did it or why but it was just another sign of the idiocy that abounds with regard to Deal's Gap. I found the Cherohala to be a far more enjoyable ride and believe there are many better roads in other parts of the country - and MUCH better roads in other parts of the world. Still, maybe if the stupidity is focussed on "The Dragon", it will keep some of it away from the other places.

Is she like the chicks in the beer carts at the golf course? Looks like that thing could hold a few cases.

I sure would love to have a Servi-Car. It would make a hell of a kegerator.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

If I had space in my garage, we'd be talking. Sadly, I have 6 bikes, two of which are hacks, and haven't parked a car in the garage for years. I'm actually trying to thin the herd a little at the moment.

Hahahah You can easily tell that was photoshopped - The shadows are all wrong. He was on the right side of the double-yellow and you made it look like he's on the left.
