Hopefully it is at least heat and moisture resistant...
At least the Nike's are leather...:eek1
No wonder he crashed. Look at the front tire in the first picture. He had actually tried to turn it! Kind of hard to push left in a right turn.
Just going from brake light, sparks, and possibly the passengers right foot already off the peg, I'd say the bike is already gone in the first pic. Front wheel possibly unloaded due to grinding parts. Saying that, I would have thought that particular bike could have gotten a lot lower before grinding parts. Incorrect/poor fitting exhaust perhaps?
You're riding the wrong roads.
~120 extra pounds hanging off the tail without jacking the rear spring up a couple notches will do that in a hurry.
LOL. I didn't even think of that. Sometimes we can't see the forest for the trees, I guess. Thanks for pointing out the obvious to me.
Does it look to anyone else like the pillion is wearing rock climbing shoes? Odd choice of motorcycling footwear.
I believe she "had to climb up on him" as he "laid her down."
Not really, she wanted to make sure she had good traction to climb up Rock Head's back and kick him between the eyes for that stunt!
^^^ Frick! Too late
No been on the best, twisty roads in the East, and Rocky's, haven't done the left coast yet, but most of the roads there had some engineering involved, meaning they are not as fun as they would have been had they just paved the goat trails like they did in Northern Italy.
There is no place in the US you can ride hard enough to wear off the foot pegs, and make the tires look like you have been to a track day and your moving average speed was only 35 mph! And do it for days on end, with out retracing your steps.
Shortest rd. is 26 miles,i live one inch to the right of map.
Thanks for making my point SouthWade!
Here is yours which is about 1600 sq miles (40x40 miles)
Vs central Italy about 625 sq miles, or less than 1/2 the area you mapped
Vs N Italy same 625 sq mile scale
And I can move N-E-Sor W of these captures and it looks the same. I have been with several riders there for the first time, and think they know what to expect and every one is completely blown away. Yes we have some good roads, but there is THOUSANDS in the Alps, and considering the entire Alps chain would fit in 1/2 of Colorado! So take EVERY great road in N America, and move it to an area 1/2 the size of CO, and you get the idea.
Now I'm sad.
There are NO roads like that anywhere in the US; Not in North-Central Pennsylvania, not in West Virginia, not in Tennessee, not in North Carolina, not even in California as doxiedog has proven.
So everyone stay away from those areas I just mentioned and let us mope in solitude on our boring straight roads and tiny loops of twisties.
For sure all the roads in Western North Carolina and Eastern Tennessee suck so don't bother coming. Please.
Don't forget North Georgia. Those are also terrible. So flat and straight. In fact, the roads are so boring around here I might sell my bikes and buy a minivan.
This is one of the reasons I miss living in Europe. Of course, the tradeoff is that I get to have more motorcycles here in the US than I can in Europe.
Those sharp, changing radius right curves were hella scary on a hack.
