    You guys be careful out there.

    We lost a biker today. I don't know who it was but if anyone hears send my condolences.

    Less than a mile from Center Hill Dam on 141 going west I passed an accident scene around 4pm-5pm, probably 10 or 20 minutes after the crash. An Ambulance and the Sheriff appeared to have been there a while, neighbors where in the yards.

    Looked like a young rider laying still in the yard with a sportbike near a tree. I didn't see any other vehicle involved and it appeared to me that he missed the curve, might have hit the tree I don't know. No one was assisting him and I feel sure he had passed. :cry

    If you know this road you know there are some rolling quick curves and many of them are blind. This was at the first sharp curve leaving the Dam before Long Branch Rd.

    new tag, not hard to find - but a word of caution. this is on a one lane paved road with sharp turns, gravel in the corners, potholes, patches, etc. You can get there on any bike (there was a Road King just outside the photo) - just be careful. Having said that, be sure to ride the entire length of the road. :clap:clap:clap

    I had that tag in mind for a long time. That's kinda why I wanted that one at Arno Allisona the other day so bad. The NB Forrest monument is maybe a 10 minute ride from there. That ride out to the strawberry farm, then there was a nice one though. Still gave me a chance to hit Pulltight Hill on the way back. Always a highlight when in the area. BTW, all those grandmas at the strawberry farm gave me some crazy looks when I pulled up early on Saturday morning, snapped a pic and blasted out of there.

    BTW , I love that V-Strom ADV. I had that engine in my SV, and it was torquey and buttery smooth. I bet that package in a more comfortable and practical bike is just about perfect.

    Damn. Mrs. Rocket and I rode right through there twice yesterday on the way to and from Lynnville. It was a damn good burger at Sopa Pop Junction though!

    And when you get to the end of the road, turn right and go straight into Lynnville.
