saw one LEO last weekend.....at a crash site..... we passed them on the way up and a guy and girl were on the side of the road..... The guy was kinda hunched over....the girl looked puzzled.... We slowed down to check things out.....I gave her the thumbs up/thumbs down to see if something was wrong.....she gave back thumbs up and waved....
on the back trip...we passed a guy that warned us to slow down... we rode for atleast 3 1/2 miles and saw nothing.....approaching some turns, we picked up the pace a bit (my friend is one month since knee surgery, so we weren't setting records)...... we came around a 180* turn at about 9,500 - 10,000 rpm's and there they were.... a LEO, four paramedics, and the same two guy/girl we saw like two hours before.... we slowed very quickly, expecting the LEO to step out and stop us....
We waved and nobody waved back......except the same girl.....she gave us thumbs up and waved..... I thought.....why didnt she try to stop us before????? Maybe the guy thought he could shake it off???
They ran into a rock bed of of the side of the road..... bike didn't look too messed up.

sunday afternoon around 4pm? i was there too, on my bmw k1200s. and i saw the accident. we had my SPR, a duc 749, a gixxer and a katana, the kat rider is new so we kinda wait 'n go, when we were going the trooper jumped out and waved us to slow down, he looked pretty mad and then we saw the folks on the side. i think it's a harley glide, someone w/ a red touring bike was there too.
we stopped at t.w.o for a while, and saw this hyoeson v-rod like 650 cruiser, it actually looked petty nice.
anyway, i hope weather stay like this!!
let me know if any mv is going out, i'm ready to ride anyday.

ride or die, baby

i had friends there on friday
one was riding a BMW K1200LT on the Cherohala Skyway.....
around noontime
he was trying to keep ahead of some GOOD RIDERS on Goldwings (2 were off-duty LEOs)...... he low-sided when he ran out of room on a left-hand sweeper going too fast.... trying to save his "PRIDE"

what a jackass..... could have been killed
i was home...... at work...... my other friend.... the better rider.... was on his BMW K1200GT (like mine) was up ahead of him
the goldwing guys stopped and helped him
NO broken bones/bike "OK" to ride.....
broken PRIDE
maybe he learned a lesson about NEVER RIDING OVER YOUR LIMITS

you forgot to add..... never expect much lean angle out of a K1200 touring bike....

the people I saw down were on a honda or kwaka 1000..... no cruisers were in sight. and it was a saturday around 3 or so
