    People in glass houses shouldn't throw rocks. Maybe if we're gonna ban trucks from all the roads on which you choose to break the law, we should ban motorcycles as well.

    Way over the line, and not even fast enough to fly the flags... they're hangin' limp (much like the rider). Perhaps their purpose is to obscure the license plate in just this situation.

    They should make the entire road a passing zone then everyone would ride on the wrong side all the time and it would be safer:norton

    I wish I would have had a helmet cam or someone taking a pic of me coming around a 25mph posted blind corner,(damn corn fields) while trying to miss the loose gravel to find a Iowa Highway Patrol car 2ft over a double yellow in my lane! We missed by inches and I was too shook up to turn around and get a car #. You should have seen the look in his eyes, and mine too probably! I'm very glad I wasn't riding too fast and had room to change my line!!!

    Good thing you didn't hit him, you KNOW you would be found totally at fault. Probably get charged with attempted assault on a police officer, or something like that.
    Sorry for my cynicism. Been around to long, seen to much.

    Ride On!

    WTF are you talking about? How dare you ASSume I'm/we're a law breaker...

    Do you have any proof to support your findings?

    Whereas a truck, it's proven can NOT safely navigate those roads without being LOC.

    Thank you, and have a nice day... Come back now, y'hear?

    PS, LOC is illegal for both parties. But one of them can't get out of there w/o breaking the "law".

    So? What? We should ban all car/truck/MC use on all winding roads?

    If you can not tell the difference in risk between a motorcycle exceeding the speed limit and a vehicle that is forced to use both lanes (and sometimes a bit more), then any discussion with you on the subject is completely useless.

    Still wondering what all of these bikes pics here are proving...:hmmmmm



    I must say that I'm with scarysharkface on this. I don't think it's a good idea for a pyromaniac to shout "FIRE!!!".

    They are proving that some, not all, bikers can't ride a sofa for shit...

    Meanwhile all, not some, truckers can not drive a truck up there, period.

    and a bike is what? 1/4th that of a car/truck/SUV... And what? 1/10th or 1/20th the size of a tractor trailer?


    And don't think I forgot about scarysharkface:D

    Lots of public roads built for nothing but pleasure. Try the 400+ mile Blue Ridge Parkway for just one example! NO COMMERCIAL TRUCKS ALOWED on most of it.

    There are plenty of roads where commercial trucks are not allowed!

    This thread is amazing, know it all ricky racers bagging on a joe who made an simple error like they never have. What a joke!:deal

    The Cherohala just a few miles from the south end of Deals Gap
    has no commercial traffic. It, along with the Forest Roads, are my
    favorite rides.

    But, I don't see folk bagging on "a" Joe making a mistake -
    It is the number of "Joes" making mistakes and the number of
    mistakes being made that is particular
    to Deal's Gap.
