Who hasn't crossed the double yellow once or twice, the difference is on THAT road you need to make sure to give even more room.

Just one of them. He offered a service there for a while...he'd follow you through or lead you using several video cameras.

I've seen this guy ride through there several times while stopped somewhere in the middle. You just can't help but laugh...it's a bit ridonculous.

Me







You'll notice in this last one, I'm still on the brakes, so not yet at full lean.





There are 2 corners where I have to slightly back off of 35mph.

I never touch the brakes on the Gap at that speed.

35mph is easy.

The guy behind you.

directly behind you. from the military designation of location where 12:00 is directly in front of you, 3:00 is to your right, 9:00 is to your left, etc.

How was your ride?
Excellent. Traffic was pretty light all weekend on the roads I rode.

What a difference.
Yes,it is good to be out riding.
I've got an '09 ADV too. And had an '05 GS.
Both nice machines, but for me, I prefer the GSA.

Let me know when you're comin this way (WNC, Asheville area). I'd be happy

to show you around some fantastic roads/trails with almost zero traffic.
