The tread on the guys boots matches the color if the frame...that's what I call good design work.
I don't know, lots of equipment violations. Easiest is plate mounting.
Another angle on these guys....
Orange bike's passenger footwear - nice ankles.
Lead rider sure seems to be trying hard to hang off with so little lean...
A certain symmetry appeals to me.
if he waits till he is in the turn, its too late. but they all look like the tires are low so they all fail.
I thought the same thing....
Woah tough crowd here
What is it with these morons on the wrong freakin side of the road? Now, I'm just some cheesehead rider from Green Bay, done most of my 225,000 miles plus riding in Wisconsin and the midwest, but even I can easily handle the Dragon. We have some hairpin turns in Wisconsin. Not easy to find, but we got em.
Now, I have not ridden the Dragon on a bike, but I did do it in a rented Mustang back in 2000. A Tuesday night, had the whole thing to myself, cept for one Chrysler that waved me past, and on couple on a Hawg. They also waved me past because he could NOT lean the bike even five degrees off verticle.
The little Mustang was howling through the turns! I did the entire Dragon in 2nd gear (automatic), and a few times I saw 70 on the speedo. What a hoot! But not once did I have to use the opposite lane to manage the turns. Cherahola Parkway was a nice drive too, Bob Seger blasting on the stereo, sun roof open, what a night driving back into Knoxville during a lightning storm.
At least they focused on the pillion chick's ass.
You are preaching to the choir here. The awesome riders in this thread have never crossed a center line. Not only that but they know the precise lean angle for every turn and how much to hang off their bike at any given time in said turn. A real bunch of douchbags, er, um, I mean pros around here!
$.50 cent soda in the machine at the yamaha shop in modesto.
As of two days ago,had a tire mounted there and a pepsi. :)
My dog, rides better than some of these jerks.
Yeah, but your dog doesn't have a whip.
Only one visible license plate in the group, and it's the same guy who still has turn signals. The other guys just might get to bring home a TN award, handwritten on a beautiful multipart paper form!
Not all states require MCs to have turn signals. (only 18 states require them)
TN is one that does NOT require them.
Sure, but haven't they been a federal DOT requirement going on almost 40 years?
