Ride Pics

As title suggests, lets see some pictures from your rides!

I finally got the bike out for the first time Tuesday so I snapped a few photos. We are still waiting for leaves to appear but it is coming fast. Here are a few from coastal Maine:

Madbuyer must have been riding with you. That always happens when you ride with that speed-demon!

Madbuyer has a good picture of the two of us getting pulled over on the end of Hwy 36. Actually it was me that got us pulled over.
The cop was cool, let me off with a warning.
Then Mb says, "Hey, can I take a picture of our bikes and you're cruiser?" The cop says "yeah, you want me to turn on the flashing lights?"

Madbuyer, you still have that picture?

A friend and I just rode the Devil's highway in AZ, route 191. People talk about the Tail of the dragon like it's handed down from God. The Dragon has 318 curves in 11 miles. The Devil's highway has 2200 curves in 91 miles. Win: Devil's Hwy. I will type up a ride report when I get off my ass here soon, but let me say it was EPIC!! Bar none the best riding I have ever encountered. I wish I had more pics, but I was busy riding. Most of the pictures I got while sitting on the side of the road waiting for my buddy that was riding his BMW K1200GT.
















Whatever I lack in HP I make up for in just plain ol' crazy!!

2000 Corvette
2001 RC51
Not sure which is faster...

Great Pics IM, makes me miss living in Sierra Vista. Great riding in AZ. If you haven't done so you should also try Arivaca Hwy.

I've had a lot of people tell me they like Arivaca... I've done it in mt Vette, and on my old R1. Didn't like it either time. VERY dirty road, unpredictable surface, cattle guards galore... It didn't appeal to me. We typically do Mt. Lemon or the run to Sonoita, but there's too many people on the mountain and the fun part of Sonoita is too short.

But the 191... My new favorite digs....

I hear you, Mt. Lemon would be excellent if not for so many leos and all the bicyclists. Back side of old Tucson has some fun turns as well.
