    Doent look like sprung weight vs un-sprung weight really makes a big difference on that bike.

    It's on a trailer or in a truck, right?

    I'm not sure that truck should be passing on the right but you do what you gotta do.

    I met that dog at No Clever Name in Alabama this past weekend. Cool pooch!:clap

    The dog's people, Jack (Jack4245 on here) and Melenda, are nice folks, too.

    This is another case where a little research can be a big help.

    http://lmgtfy.com/?q=+sport+etymology&l=1

    If you look up the etymology and many definitions of the word "sport" you'll find it is clearly not limited to "competitive activity".

    It originally meant "to take pleasure, to amuse oneself," from Anglo-Fr. disport, O.Fr. desport "pastime, recreation, pleasure," from desporter "to divert, amuse, please, play" < < from online etymology dictionary

    I'm pretty sure you realize the meaning of words and phrases can change over time.

    Decimate used to mean reduce by 1/10, now it is used to mean obliterate.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decimation_(Roman_army)

    "Begging (or Begs) the question" is strictly defined as a specific kind of logical fallacy: (Latin petitio principii, "assuming the initial point") http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Begging_the_question
    Modern usage has morphed the most common meaning into "raises the question".
    It still bugs me a bit when someone says "begs the question" the "wrong" way - but then I remind myself that is probably because I am being a geek.

    Coupla questions having never been:

    What are these pumped up scooters in the photos?

    Is there really no alt route for trucks?

    as was mentioned before, those "scooters" are honda rukus's. afaik, trucks are not allowed on the dragon, but they go there anyway, as can be seen. bikers have died because of it - there is simply no way the trucks are able to stay in their lane...
