You really can't complain that the sportbike crowd ruined Deal's Gap.
The cruiser crowd out numbers the sportbikes 6 to 1.
Today looking over the store parking lot, I could not see one sportbike.
As for breaking the speed limit on Deal's Gap... The speed limit is 30mph.
If a rider or multiple riders can not get past 20mph on this road, there is no excuse for them to be on a motorcycle.
The picture posted was at about 15mph following two sportbikes.
No one that I got stuck behind was site seeing. They were scared.
Scared is not how to ride a motorcycle in the mountains.
Confident is the attitude you need to ride a bike safely anywhere.
I very rarely ride Deal's Gap during the riding season.
But once in a while I need to refresh my memory.
And can somone please tell me what there is to see on Deal's Gap?
It is not a site seeing road. There are green trees and mountain sides.
There is no scenery.
60 in North Georgia now has fresh pavement about twenty miles of it.
360 from Telico to Vonroe, TN now has fresh pavement.
There are so many better roads.
Soon it will be cold and the roads will belong to the true riders and the posers will be back in the bars.
