    Evidently he drifted it just right and made it through... Pucker factor must have been pretty high though. :D

    He's on the FZ1OA, and that's what he's riding. Had just started raining and I think he was trying to catch his son. Everything worked out just fine.

    You have to go south of Indy to find terrain like that. It's a shame that I live in the flat ass northern part of the state, I'd buy an appropriate bike and ride that every weekend. Actually, from the looks of it I could just my Buell through there.


    Picture as per thread rules.

    Yeah, 42 miles from my driveway.

    Some bikes are more fun than others.

    a video still from last year ride in Spain at Tossa de Mar to Saint Feliu de Quixols. Name of the road is Gi682, a lot less impressive as the dragon, but despite that fact, it is for sure a must ride, for those who like to take a winding road.

    this road consists out of turns and turns only for 68km's in a row with quality asfalt (sponsored by the european community).

    The GS you see is fitted with custom technoflex suspension for track days and has a seat height of 90cm and yes it is pressed good in the suspension.

    the bikes we used for this trip on mostly winding roads and yes we had snow as well.

    I was riding up to the Dragon on my Ducati, brother on his BMW RT. We don't ride slow (no knee dragging either). I see green in my rearview on every corner so we finally give way. Got passed by these TWO. Blew my mind that we were overtaken by a rider AND pillion.
