Nice vid. After watching that I am scared to go there . Even if you don't go off road yourself what if another biker coming the other way wipes you out.


BTW, good vids for us insomnicas tonight Now I'm going to sleep.

Glad you liked them! As far as the Gap goes, that stuff happens all the time. Just wait till someone does it and brushes shoulders in a turn..... Most of the time you will find yourself happy and with plenty of room, but there are some that want to ride their own pace, and nothing will get in their way. I don't pass over double yellow on the road, but if you are patient most of the cagers in those areas will wave you around when it is safe for them to get over and for you to pass. I will tell you this, in some of those areas (near or in the Gap) will arrest you for crossing a double yellow, and you have to spend 30 days in the jail, as well as get you bike impounded.

I could understand the hard laws if the cops are used to cleaning up accidents there. Those roads are super technical and just about all blind, and these guys were flying through every turn.

That makes me so sad I missed my trip down last week.
Great vid, thanks for posting.
BTW, whats with all the kickass supermoto vids lately? There must be a conspiracy to make me buy one.
