dam. was he an inmate?
The Road can be a cruel mistress...
Link, please when it hits the local news.
Up on the Dragon a few weeks ago. Rainy Monday afternoon I don't think I passed 10 bikes going the other way and 2 of them were in my lane:eek1 It seems like people get on this road and loose what little common sense they have.
Thanks, sad story.

I'm out here in Yuma with a bunch of guys from Cherry Point. I'll have to ask if anyone knows him.
Sad story about the young Marine crashing and dying on the Dragon. Best wishes to his family & friends.
Finally something we can all agree on here.
RIP Mr. McMillin. Thank you for your service.
Now that's true love
Or plain stupidity. I've seen more than one girl walking around the CROT, in a daze, wrapped in gauze and missing the better part of a finger or toe.
She looks appropriately dressed, and is learning...
He's obviously an experienced rider and is doing a great job at coaching her thus far. More work on body and head position and they will make a nice team.
They should take it to the fucking track. Track days are good fun... not ment for public roads, yeah??
And I'll stay off your lawn too.
I've ridden on a track before, was okay. Mad Sunday looks like a million times more fun though.
The only people in the world that still know how to hold a proper roadrace are the Northern Irish/Manx, which is sad.
All I know is that if you need to drag a knee puck on the asphalt, you need to take the shit to the track. Sorry for sounding like some stingy old fuck, but it bothers the shit outta me that people get on their bikes and push them to the point of no return (while others are using the same roads some riders are using as a track). No bueno.
1. You have an absurd potty mouth
Knee down is not anywhere near the point of no return... if you know what the fuck you are doing.
Bingo. No one has ANY argument against this. It is impossible. There are laws on the street such as speed limits and reckless driving. There are accidents all the time, all over the world and it is only because someone is doing something they are not supposed to be doing. And one of those things is dragging a knee.
Sure, you can do it and go to bed with a smile on your face with the thought of that great ride, but it don't always work out that way.
Everyone's skill level is different, one persons 80% may be someone elses 120%. Just saying... the key is staing within your own limits, and the limits of the road and conditions and ride smooth. Me, I try to ride to my 80% when road and conditions allow, leaves a good bit of buffer. Im faster than most, slower than many. FWIW I dont drag my knee, havent in a long time. I dont see the need personally, especially on the Strom. I hang off on the Hawk, but keep my knee tucked a little.
You yourself have condoned breaking the posted speed limit. Knee down is not a good indicator of how fast someone is riding or how hard they are pushing.
She looks good in form in more than one way. Much preferable to those cows on the back of "hogs", "doing the Dragon".
I'd hit it ..
