So how does he shift and brake, with his feet on the hiway pegs?

This looks rideable, maybe his ego was hurt or his bitch wouldn't get back on.

Never run out of traction, real estate, and ideas at the same time.

I'm thinking from the front fender and the missing light, that the front end has some damage that might make it unsafe to ride. I bet it's a total loss with the cost of repair's at a HD shop and the front and entire side damaged. You could probaly pick it up on Copart or Crankyape for half what that dummie paid for it!

I bought the bike in 85, had it painted in 87, and sold it after about 10 years. Kent Holt, in Athens, OH did the paint work. It was the unfaired model. I haven't seen it since.

I was thinking the same thing. Maybe his left handlebar is over the line?

And what the hell is that thing the passenger is wearing? Is that one of those airbag vests?

Dammit! I went through Deals Gap four times last weekend. On the last run I had some free road in front of me, so I crossed the double yellow as I passed Killboy hoping to get in the thread. Let me know if you find a pic of a yellow and black R1100S over the line in a left turn.

Now we have to account not only for the "Killboy" effect - causing actions worthy of posting here because of the cameras by the road - Now we have the "Killboy failure Dragon Fest" effect. How long before someone crashes in front of Killboy, trying to get into this thread?

All photos of people crossing the double yellow are hereafter suspect for this reason.
