Aren't you supposed to tuck the Jpegs in for twisty work? Unless he's trying to make sparks.

And I'm not sure that carbon fiber makes sparks, but you can tell the guy on the R-bike sure was trying. Looks to me like he's heading for a serious oil leak.

As for the last pic, those ex-Harley riders always stand out, don't they.

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...

The CF head covers on the Boxercup bikes have a built-in slider, hence the "shaved down" look of the leading corner of the head.

Is that LT coming just out of the gravity cavity?
I thought they were grind to fit like HD floorboards
Actully a real biker (as opposed to all those fake fag fashion clad, leather so thin you can read the morning paper through it crew. That rides "The Bike" every other sunday weather permitting) as in 1%er, flipping you off is a sign of acknowledgement and respect.
The watering holes have just become so crowded with those afore mentioned TV Bred couch commandos, that it is easier to ignore all except your own tribe. Unless you have some magic spell to cast them all back into the minivan (Of course they do thin out really quick when it comes to fisticuffs at close range)
JMHO, I could be wrong, But sorry to say I ain't!

I was there over the weekend, and several had colored tires. The crotch rocket guys run wide tires with no tread, but soft as an eraser. I understand traction is outstanding, but mileage leaves something to be desired.

Killboy site info

Those pictures were impressive and having ridden the Dragon, brought back good memories. I went to the Killboy.com site and the blog says there's a crackdown on speeders scheduled to begin this weekend including Georgia and Tennessee LE authorities. Just a heads up for our LT riding friends who might be visiting there in the near weeks.

Ride safe!

Oh alright. . .I'll ride next to the Harley this time!
