Again, aint that judgement? Like; not doing 100 in places like that?
Anyplace that has a straight more .5 miles long?

How is the cop supposed to know that you are only riding like an asshat in this particular safe area (designated safe by you) and not also in regular areas where other people might share the road with you?

I am fairly sure that IheartmyNx is the same guy on another board (under another name after being banned more than once) that someone said this about him:

Modern bike on a good surface - Yes!

Most riders suddenly finding themselves needing to brake hard under real world conditions would find it all but impossible to stop in those distances. I see many, many people who have just been practicing and coached under the most tightly controlled conditions yet still can't do it.

Just so you know - the early adoption of the Iron Cross and other German symbols had to do with WWI and WWII vets coming home with disposable income (for motorcycles) and souvenirs they wanted to display.

Not really-- the guy in the entourage is prolly struggling to keep it behind him and the guy in the Vette is taking a best line and doesn't care about the double yellow. Neat pics, though...

Now that would be an interesting experiment! Let's quit responding to him and see if he goes away, or continues to babble. We already know that if we respond it just ups his output. Who's with me?!

ALL: I, for one, enjoy the banter. Some of the pix should inspire a response of a 1000 words. And having an exchange of opinion with a rider as far away from me as OZ is a real delight. This thread and the 'haters of hanging off' thread has been a lot of fun.

Certain states allow that setup on a private license, but the total length is strictly governed.

This is unusual, the passenger is wearing more gear than the rider.

I wonder if her "hip pad" is CE approved.

I think it allowed because the first trailer is a 5th wheel hook up.
