However, the last thing I want is for the Cherohala to be turned into a fu&*ing circus like Deal's Gap. The Dragon is a once great road that has been ruined.

This looks to me like a live American Pitt dressed & strapped to the riders back. Our daughter has one of the same color. Ears are a give away. He's looking through the turn, & I bet he's having the time if his life. Assuming he's a he, of course.

“Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.”

And some of the more conventional stuff were about the most evil handling bikes that I had ever tried. But I could never make an accurate guess before I got on as to how it might work. Some of the rocker armed springers like this one were pretty good and some were completely unpredictable. I have no idea how long a builder would have to fool with chops before handling predictabilty might be accurately assessed during the build and before a test ride assuming the build was not just a copy of a proven design? And some of the riders were really good. They could make a feet-up, slow speed u-turn on a 2 lane street with the front wheel 90 degrees to the frame with drag bars on dog bones on top of such springers. Always amazed the heck out of me when I saw it.

I can't even be comfortable on anything with a riding position like that.

I work with a who rides a Night Train, has a bunch of work done to it.

He got hurt at work and I rode the bike home for him, didn't like having my feet out in front of me like that.
I'm used to being on something that I can shift my weight on, and the only thing I could do on this was sit there.

Not fun for me at all.
