Solo on the Harley, just installed the new White Walls - Brup

no, its a fairground that is not having a fair that wknd, so they use the paved roads that would normally be llined with vendors or rides, they make a track that is over 1 mile per lap, with dirt, grass,deteriorating assfault, maybe a lil gravel but its mostly paved, they invite sumo/flattrack/mx/dualsport riders so there is a variety of bikes out there,
