If someone is that close to me, I would fall over.

Re: The "Siamese" MC ralley

I remember riding "close"/side-by-side over 200 miles with wires between my Harley and another Harley because the other bike's battery died....and couldn't find a replacement. My friend and I had ridden thousands of miles together and this was a really easy task.

The way these guys ride, tho is amazing..... even tho the Department probably pays for repairs, they still have to be sure they don't get hurt.

There are many dynamics here... the outside bike must travel further/faster to keep up... the guy on the inside needs to use peripheral vision to keep the cone in frame, etc.. amazing what humans can do when they want to cooperate.

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

With some practice, I think Meese and I could do that ... but with two GTs.
Too bad I won't be attending.


That video just validates what I've been saying for years! If I'm going to ride in a parade or a parking lot, I wouldn't mind a LEO being next to me at all.
