After living 3.5 hours from Deals Gap the last 7 years I finally took a bike there weekend before last.
I think I must have gotten really lucky because traffic wasn't bad at all. I got a couple runs on the dragon late on Saturday and Sunday with hardly any cars. Even during the busy part of the afternoons cars and Harleys were pulling over to let me pass reasonably quick when I got behind them. Only saw one local cop Saturday and he didn't seem to care that I was running a little over 40 MPH when we went by each other.
I was stupid and took my mesh jacket rather than my full leathers, telling myself that I was going to take it really easy. Then I let peer pressure get to me and pushed harder than I was planning a few times through. I also should have put on new tires before going. I had to stop riding a little earlier Sunday afternoon that I would have because my rear was toast.
I rode the whole skyway early Sunday afternoon and had it all to myself most of the time. Except on the way back when some dude riding two up on a big Victory or something like that saw me coming up in his mirror and decided he wanted to race me rather than let me by. I was impressed by how well he was doing on that big ass bike. But I was annoyed that he was gunning it and running up to 70 or 80 on the straights and pulling away from me at the pace I wanted to ride then I would end up having to slow for him again on the next curve.
Now I want to go back with my R1 again with good tires but I also really want to ride my supermoto there. Need a trailer and more days there so I can take both I guess.
I didn't get lucky with a picture at full lean but Killboy got some decent shots I decided to pay for. Somehow the 129 Slayer guys didn't catch me a single time.
Just thought I would share.
My bike hauler project truck, soon to have an LS motor.
