    Anther time I went riding with another young lady that had a old HD 45. We went down the BRP for a while, and she got a little ahead of me. Neither of us were wearing leather. She had on a tank top, and was rather well endowed. I came around the next corner and she was standing beside her bike with her top off waving it. I stood on the brakes thinking I was about to have a good time, but instead it turning out a bee had gone down between her melons and stung her, and she was trying to get it out. I did offer to help, and pull any stingers out with my teeth.

    Found the Italian resturant down Ellot Valley yet?
    My Mother still lives in C'burg, I'll let you know next time I come up to visit. She just had hip replacement done, and my sister is visiting from Utah, taking care of her, I may try to come up there shortly.

    I may come up there shortly, if I have my GS fixed soon, I may ride it and take two days of backroads touring either on the way up, or on the way back. I am gainfully unemployed right now, and the wife is headed to Finland for business soon, so I might take advantage of her absence to take a road trip.
    I've got two BMW's, and both are broken right now. The only running street bike is the Norton. Fortunatly, this weekend is the British in the Blue Ridge Rally, in Hiawasse GA, so at least I have the correct bike for that. I figure I'm gonna put close to a thousand miles on it this weekend. I'm gonna leave tomorrow, and ride up there. Then I hope to hit some good roads in the area. Rt 28 from Rt 76 up to Highlands is a favorite.

    Almost 11 years! This might be the most impressive case of thread necromancy I've ever seen.

    I was reading along, thinking 'wow, so this is where Steverino hides out these days'. Then BOOM, post 25 rocks me back to the present :lol3

    Well.I ride the BRP several times a month.I've only had one ranger altercation.It was later on, after I passed him.We happen to end up at the same overlook.He politely shared his knowledge of my speed, and ask me not to ride so fast.I did as asked.I wasn't in any hurry anyway.I can always afford a talking to,but a ticket, not so much.

    I had one encounter with the BRP LEO Rangers also- about 15 years ago I was driving along pulling a 20ft enclosed trailer with my pickup, thought I saw bluelights in the mirror, but on second look they weren't on. Then a little bit later saw them again then they were off- WTF?
    Finally the third time I pulled over at an overlook and yep Ranger behind me with blue lights on.
    He pulled me because my trailer had a SC permanent plate- which is what they issue for trailers. He incorrectly assumed that meant commercial, which of course isn't allowed on the parkway. Told him it was a trailer full of dirt bikes and he was welcome to look- we had been riding at Wayehutta earlier that day.
    He said, no need. He was a really nice guy.
    I told him I kept thinking I was seeing blue lights then I didn't, he laughed and said yeah, he kept turning them on as we approached overlooks and when I didn't stop he would turn them back off until the next overlook.
    Ironic thing is I put the plate on the trailer to keep from getting stopped out of state for not having a plate and instead it got me stopped! Most people in SC don't put plates on as it is only required on trailers over something like 2500-3000 lbs although it is pretty much ignored and the cops never stop anyone I've heard of with no plate on a trailer. I've heard horror stories of getting a ticket in other states though for not having a plate on an SC trailer- tell it to the judge they say. PITA

    I have had a license plate altercation,but not by a BRP LEO.It seems that some states require plates, regardless of origin state.Ignorance of the law isn't an acceptable answer.
