It's the "crotch rocket" crowd
The crackdown is annoying, but has in part been brought about by the people who think it is a race track and not a public road.
While they are certainly not the only law breaking desperados; wheelies, standees, improper lane usage, (ie:don't know what the yellow line represents), and many wrecks. Wrecks including a rash of pretty new 1098's, left the THP without a real choice. Apparently you can only look the other way for so long....
I also would like to take this opportunity, as I'm on my soapbox, to blame the IDIOTS on SuperBikes on "SPEED". The network is usually way cool, but the crap that show airs, (and Pinks and Egomaniac puts crap on your car show),such as: riding down the hill approaching the restaurant on the NC end of the dragon, doing a standee....how can LEOs ignore that forever. It's like hey, we're breaking in this building over here officer, and we will be here at the same tomorrow in case you don't get us today.
That being said, there are plenty of other such rides around here, though the cool thing about the dragon is the lack of driveways and residences.
