Last weekend was beautiful and I went riding up my favorite twisty mountain. About halfway up, I came upon a pack of cruisers. As an observer, I was fascinated by how slow they were going.

When they came to a corner, they (at least the last two riders) stayed bolt upright like they were in an easy chair. They didn't pivot their head to keep the horizon level. I had to try it. After several corners of keeping my head in line with the bike, it felt like I was on a carnival ride. I almost got sick.

So it wasn't their bike's fault (I never saw anything scrape) they went slow, it was the rider's fault. Instead of being smooth, they were pretty jerky around corners. They were probably experts at cruising a straight highway, but didn't know how to take a curve. I bet most cruiser riders never take a riding class.

Speaking of cruisers, i saw footage of a misc biker rally. They held a race around a small oval open to every one and every fatty cruiser. Well they were off and come the first corner they ALL WRECK! Except one guy on a sportster they all drug frame and primary and flipped over awkwardly. No helmets were worn and im sure all the medic footage was deleted to ensure a good time. silly stuff.

I'm trying to figure out why the "lane-crosser" isn't still leaned over in the second pic. The road may have straightened out but he's still in the wrong lane, so he should still have that pig scraping metal. Bet they both had to stop and change their shorts after that.

That is just what you what you could expect on a twisty road & a poser on a H-D.. And the 2 skid marks u can't see r in thier pants. Just glad I wasn't coming the other way might have had to pass him on the inside :rant: stupid :cursin: a-hole .

THEY BOTH HAVE ON CANADIAN TUXEDO'S. AMERICAN PAVEMENT IS NO MATCH FOR CANADIAN DENIM. APPARENTLY THE GUY BUSTIN THE YELLOW KNOWS THIS AND FEARS NOTHING. THE OTHER GUY KNOWS NOTHING BECAUSE IF HE DID HE WOULD NOT BRAKE SO HARD TO GENERATE A SKID MARK. IT'S SIMPLE PHYSICS PEOPLE! :buds:

I Feel You Guys I Should Tell You Guys This Because Most Of You Can't Ride(weather) And I've Mentioned A Few Times About How Nice It Is Here. I Rode My Bike To Work And It Is Raining Now. I Will Be Riding In The Rain. I Figured It'll Happen Sooner Or Later. It Rained Just Enough To Soak My Bike, Wet The Roads And Piss Me Off, Then It Stopped. I Heard My Rubber Is Good On Wet Roads...i'm About To Find Out. Laters-

If this is the same event I happened across, it was at the Gap and both guys went to the hospital in the same meat wagon. I would have hated to be the Paramedic in the back on that ride. Over 45 minutes to the hospital from the Gap.

Probably going WAY too fast and not paying attention to what was coming up.
