I rode up Hwy 9 today, 4-7-'14. On the way up the hill I got behind a Harley. The last time I was behind a Harley the guy left me in the dust. This time, on a twisty road, his low clearance and not being able to lean to much, it was my turn. On the straights he would open up the distance but on the curves I kicked his a$$!!! Just before the twisties got severe he pulled over and let me pass.

I wonder what he thought when he saw a 200 cc bike with knobby tires go by?


Honestly, cudos to the Harley rider. He stayed in his comfort zone!

This was my "Laughter is the Best Medicine" post of the day. Just love the Roadrunner horn at the end, cracked me up!

At first I thought the H-D rider was slowed down cause he/she was waving to all the other motorcycle's, but then I realized it was your riding skills that did him/her in!:p

I just got my @$$ chewed out by my wife. We're at a Doctors office when I played this video. Thinking it was on mute, instead it was on full volume! Now the people in the waiting room next to us have a horrified look on their faces, imagining the Skin Doc is using some kind of 200cc gas powered device to remove moles.:rolleyes:

I ride both a Road King (don't judge me!) and a TW. Its no problem to get to the top of Mt Hamilton in significantly less time on the TW. The lean angle is the big factor but I also feel much more comfortable being able to steer using weight on the pegs which has a lot more impact on our little machines than the RK. Cant beat the TW for smiles per gallon :D

I just sent a link to my buddy that likes to brag about Harly Hunting on his ST1300. Told him this is how real men do it. He has a TW so he's got no excuse.
