Nah, that bike is way too clean. Plus it's the wrong color.

Nice pics, Pastor.

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...

No need to worry about that. The only side of my bike that Joe saw was the BACK side!

Jack,
what day of the week were you there? Looks like no traffic at that point. What about LEO's?

Re: How a GT ought to look on the Dragon!

These pics were taken on a Saturday, but it had rained that morning...hard. I think that kept most of the bikes away. There was still some traffic, but not too much.

Re: How a GT ought to look on the Dragon!

Well, actually I leaned it 'til I thought the tank emblems would scrape and I still have about an 1/8" chicken strip. Just can't seem to get rid of them.

Re: How a GT ought to look on the Dragon!

Pictures looked good. See just a little light on the lean.........

After years of riding the mountains of WV, I'm always concerned about surprises on my way into the curve! Not unusual to find lots of sand, gravel and moisture on past rides. I always love to have someone ahead to "scout.".....
