Funny.

Passing on a double yellow is almost a necessity now in California as most roads are ALL DOUBLE YELLOW. Many used to be dotted (even when I started riding in 2003), but now....for whatever reason, its double yellow everything. Sad too, as even a modern car could easily pass another on many of those roads where now its illegal simply because its a double yellow.

So much fail.

Her friend in the mask and corset is a big hit too. Tank tops all around for the chicks. Camo pants make you look stupid. Arm band tattoo? Sweet! First one of those I've seen. Hey fatty on the bike, nice pony tail. Hot girl thinking, "this is no good. No one's looking at me!"

And I thought they were looking at the red/black HD to determine if their chrome consultant could work his magic on it

If I take someone on my bike, it is my responsibility as a human being to ride in a way as to protect them, not to see if they can hang on. Maybe she likes the thrill, but I bet she has not fallen yet...

and you ride atgatt, right? I bet she doesn't even know there is something to protect the human body that works. I had a woman try to make a fool out of me by saying "whats with the jacket, are you cold?" Every laughed but I said no, it is pretty warm out, I just like my skin. She had the latest HD short jacket with tassels, jeans and sneakers. I told her if you ever crashed on the bike since you sit on the back, you will become a flying object and its going to ruin your day. Those tassels ain't going to help...she stopped laughing, but still wears the jacket.

But I think she got boots

This thread is about FAILS on the Dragon. How many pictures have we seen of people going around curves on the wrong side of the double yellow? How many pictures of trucks blocking the entire road? And who can forget that Harley clusterf___?

Now for all I know, that may be Valentino Rossi piloting that bike. Whoever he is, he sure looks like he is a talented rider, and he has the good sense to dress for the occasion, and his passenger does too.

Now I have ridden the Dragon many times, I don't live terribly far from there. I am hoping to do it again in June. I can tell you, it is a tight and twisty road. You can almost never see very far ahead. I think Wonder Boy here is riding so fast he would not be able to stop in time, or avoid oncoming traffic in his lane. He is taking unnecessary chances with his health and with that of his passenger.

We all think we're pretty damn smart until we plow into the back of a car that stopped where it wasn't supposed to stop. You change your way of thinking when living in a skilled nursing facility learning how to walk again - don't ask me how I know.

If you cannot stop in your sight line, you are going to fast - and that makes you a squid, despite the leathers...
