    That is because BMW riders ride their bikes to the event instead of flying in and taking a limo to the rental agency.

    You would be very wise to avoid it during the Summer unless you can get up at dawn and ride before the cruisers finish their large breakfasts. It is a good ride from 5AM - 7AM.

    That faux chinbar is becoming the rage. I don't get it. :scratch I would think if it were there it would just be something to break and grind into your face. Most calim to not be fuctional, I guess if it was functional, I could wrap my head around it a little better. 3/4 or FF, make up your mind. LMAO

    YMMV

    If I simply couldn't stand it and had to head to that freak parade stretch of road, I'd definitely run it during the dawn hours.

    Of course, as as been mentioned numerous other times there are other roads out there which are just as fun, but haven't been tarnished by becoming a playground for idiots.

    Who needs a pillion seat? A head of a pin is enough.

    That's kind of scary. She's not holding on by much. Maybe her ass has a super firm grip on that seat.

    Come on down and give me a shout. I'll take you thru and probably not meet another bike.
    Cherohala skyway is a must do if you are in the area.

    Jerry,


    I'll definitely give you a shout when I head that way. Don't know exactly when I'll be out there yet, depends on a few things, but if things go as planned should be some time in June.

    Same here. I'm in WNC. We have a few "special" roads we can hit.

    A bunch of us on supermotos will be terrorizing the gap and WNC the first week of May. I'll be staying in the Treetops with some guys, others are finding hotels.

    I was counting on you for the current market trend. Thanks for the information. I was making my remark without any factual data collection. It was merely my poor and fading memory of what I recall seeing around town on sunny days.

    This is what happens when the clean BMW ADVriders stray too far from the Starbucks parking lot.

    ...

    After all the armchair quarterbacking... that picture just makes me sick to see the ADV sticker on a bike over the line like that.

    Thread's over I guess.
