I made the same mistake. It's really hard to see the index finger also extended, so it looks like she's just raising her pinky in the international sign for "small penis." Combined with her expression it's hilarious.

However, she actually has two fingers extended in "devil horns," making this much less funny.

I admit, it was much funnier before. Dammit.

Somehow it ended up just fine. I "know" the rider of the Kat. Kind of like the Corvair according to Nader.

It's fine, you just do it first thing in the morning when the problem riders are still sleeping off their hangovers

Yeah. Whatever.
I know guys who are still drunk at 8 in the morning and race their hot rodded big stupid diesel 4wd trucks through there to see whose 9000 lb pile is the fastest.
F that.

hey, at least you won't have to deal with riding behind me.

I used to think I would never go to deals gap and had no interest in riding. Then a couple months ago I was in the area and decided to go there, albeit in a car. There's the thing, I though it would be so twisty it wouldn't be fun, but it was. It was awesome. It just gets under your skin. I definitely want to back there someday now.

The worst part was all the harley riders with their open pipes dragging from one curve to the next. It really started to make my ears hurt by the end of one run.

Old dude

I worked at the TN School for the Deaf back in 74/75. I bought a new 750 Honda in Marysville and broke it in riding all over that area when I was off (off everyday from 9AM-3PM). Back then it was just US129 and had a 55mph speed limit and was never patrolled. I liked it better back then.
