Just left the Grand Canyon (North Rim) and now in Vegas. That big hole in the ground is really amazing. If you haven’t seen it, you should...

Certainly not about his swimming pool. That's neither big nor in the ground.

How well does the trolley conduct heat? Might just end up becoming a burning hot metal cage around your meat.

I'm leaving tomorrow morning for a ride up the east coast to Myrtle Beach for their fall bike week, then west to Asheville where I plan to visit Grandfather Mountain and ride the Tail of the Dragon. Should be around a 2,000 mile trip. I've already got my Hotel Booked on the beach for tomorrow and Sunday night. First day's ride is going to around 600 miles. Should be fun.

Careful man. Tail of the Dragon has some bends in it.

Thanks Whiskey and sCII.

Geoff my son is 18, has school and works. However, I make time every year to do a week long trip with just the two of us. My wife and I also do at least one week long trip a year with many little weekend/holiday vacations sprinkled in. But since I have more vacation time from work, I take trips like this to indulge my joy of travel and riding.

Here's a couple more "professionally" taken photos of me riding the Tail of the Dragon.

I also had to get my rear bumper repaired and painted (someone backed into me in a parking lot). So I had them repaint the front bumper (chips from road debris) and the calipers too. It turned out really good.

I can hear the pegs scrape by just looking at those pictures

lol, I did a group charity ride back in September and some idiot on a cruiser oversteered on the most gentle turn and went right into a ditch, destroyed the bike. Most people on cruisers have zero riding skill, it's hilarious.

Sounds like the life. Hey, nothing wrong with indulging yourself. I'd do same given the opportunity.

I am taking a short road trip to Sydney next week and attending The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo show, the major (pun) reason for the visit :)

Can you give just a general idea or what to expect there? If necessary, just send me a private message.

I ride with a group fairly often and we had one fellow on a cruiser join us once. He drove into a guardrail trying to keep up with us... I have seen some talented individuals driving cruisers though but I suspect most people that are drawn to cruisers aren't necessarily the types to learn more advanced riding techniques.

I too have scraped pegs on the ground but I've done it on a sports bike that has higher peg locations. That said, I still haven't scraped the pegs on my Z900 and I have no chicken strips on my tire so I guess that probably won't be happening on this bike.

That's just it, they never learned properly because "learnin's for fags!". It's only a matter of time before the average blockheaded Harley rider gets his skull bandana and chrome radio filled with dirt and leaves :olo:

Depends on the rider. Every bike segment has its share of assholes.

Harley Rider - Stuck up.
Sports bike - wanna be racers
dirt bikes - hooligans on the streets
mopeds - people that want to look gay.

You get the idea... I may get a cruiser some day, and that day will be when I'm unable to get my leg over a sports bike.

Don't sweat it. It's just that I thought the italics use in the words "general" and "private" were enough to emphasize the puns I was trying to make :)

I suppose some people struggle with the concept, "different strokes for different folks". Basing a person's skill level on the type/style of bike they ride is ridiculous. Every class/style of bike serves a purpose for the rider. Not everyone needs/wants the riding experience of a sport bike. Just like some people find cruisers bulky and slow. We're all in the wind for a reason and every style/class of rider has it's fair share of morons.

Though I can tell you, the Tail of the Dragon would have been easier and more fun to ride on a sport bike. Because there's not much lean in my bike.

People need better reading comprehension. I litterally said it depends on the rider and proceeded to list various assholes from different groups. I guess Eraser must feel like he's Valentino Rossi's successor.
