All I have as a record of riding 242, besides memory, is a few 35mm slides, taken
where I could see 3 stretches of the road below, thru the woods, while stopped looking over the shoulder.
['Twas my first trip Out West, 1985, XL600R, just reading the map for twisties.
Not bad for a farmboy from CNY, finding his way, by himself.]

Look at the muscles in his right arm in the above photo. He is straining as hard as he can (Tricep and forearm) to try to pull that bike up. Poor bastard.

I'd agree except the brake light is on and his foot is nowhere near the pedal.

His girl should have had a lump of coal to shove up his ass, She would have got that diamond she wanted when he wasted 8 years of his pay on the HD

Seems to me the biggest hazard on the dragon is sliding out in a curve after hitting a patch of human meat.

I think I can see air under the front tire's contact (or lack thereof) patch.
