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.

I think I'd rather stab myself in the eye with a knife.
If there is any stabbing in the eye to be done Id use a fork. I'll be avoiding that place like the plague. Why travel the distance to find trouble when there are enough assholes in PA. I have NO desire to visit.

I hate and avoid the dentist and I havent been there in 40 years but Id rather have root channel without Novocain.

I say the same about Daytona and Sturgis. Now-a-days I avoid both those places like I do the dentist.

if we could only convince all the "furriners" how bad it really, maybe it'd be back to the way it was when I rode my brand new XT500C (1976) from Wilmington, NC on trials tires to ride it. The "resort" was an Esso station and a fleabag motel for hunters. The speed limit was 55 and no one ever saw a cop.. Damn I wish ex #1 hadn't disappeared all my photo albums

His survival instincts seem to be at odds with his common sense.
And looking at the size of the boy on the oncoming bike, I would hate to have to explain to him why and how I just creamed his bike with mine.

Yeah, a Stretch Limo craze. Good example of the chain flopping around, and WTH is with the con rod footpeg mount?

Nice riding windbreaker, tho.

I drove the Dragon in a Geo 10 years ago and want to ride it on the R60 some time soon, just because it's a "famous road". But only during the off-season.

Just ride on the wrong side of the line, too fast and you will be safe.

It looks to be a shaft drive Yamaha. A first year XS750 triple or a 650 Seca.
