    Looks like it was a lotus eleven.

    http://lotuseleven.org/ The reason I say "was" is the yellow subframe under looks like it is holding something BIG up

    I think he may be pacing the semi to warn oncoming riders...

    I don't know how many of you have ridden sport bikes in leathers, but that's the classic look of some slow ass vehicle / traffic / cop ahead of him making him wait.

    Jesus, it's not that difficult to interpret, is it?

    Once again September was a month when the Marine Corps lost more Marines in motorcycle crashes than they did in combat.

    Guessing by the driver's hat, it's a John Deere E-type.

    FYI I came thru Thanksgiving weekend and no Killboy nor US129 nor Moonshine or any photographers.
    Didn't stop and snap a pic, but lots of new signs saying NO STOPPING ON GRASSY SHOULDER FOR PHOTOS
    Actually, I guess stopping to snap a pic of the no stopping sign would be DISOBEYING the signs :dunno

    Gotta disagree here. Plenty of squids here that wear gear because that's what the racers wear. You can usually spot them on hot days with the jacket unzipped to about the navel.

    Nope. Squids don't wear gear. Maybe a jacket and full face if it's cold outside, but otherwise nope. 90% of the time, no gear on a sportbike = squid. That guy looks like he is following someone painfully slow (perhaps that chap with the fringe jacket?) and is smart enough to know that passing on the wrong side of a solid line on a road with blind corners is a bad idea. He certainly does not look like he is trying to ride quickly.

    A squid would have his knee stuck way out, his head and shoulders on the outside of the turn, and the bike hardly leaned over.

    going to disagree with your disagree. most wear zero gear and at most a leather jacket/gloves/helmet. maybe your definition of a 'squid' is different
