stoopid things

This isn't stunting but an amusing story.

Back in 1998, in Columbus OH, a group of us (10 bikes, some with passengers) would crush beer cans and duct tape them onto our knees. Usually during the weekend past mid-night, we would hit the cloverleaves (highway on/off ramps). We would start lighting up the asphalt with sparks.
I also had a gf that had no fear. she rode sitting straight up while i was in full kneedrag.

Colverleafs are the best! Nothing like saving yourself an hour worth of driving to get some quick twisties! The cops will ticket you for that here though.

How the heck did you ever get to full drag (with out crashing) with a passenger sitting straight up?

our cloverleaves are bad. half of them are poured uneven from seam to seam the thing feels like a MX rythm section.

All of the nice on and off ramps around here (No clover leafs close) are so wasted with tar snakes that they just aren't fun at all.. so many on there that most of them resemble graph paper!

Nope but I have heard it is quite nice! I guess there's a decent one there in Lansing too, but everything in between L and D ( with pickle smack in the middle) sucks!

99birdv6 and I hit some twisties this weekend...found a great road with chicanes...everything was going well until we were coming out of the left hander and into the path of the Sheriff's car......we just waved and got the H3ll out of there... I guess he had something better to do, he didn't turn around...

He probably didn't feel like wasting his time trying to catch up.
