The above mentioned cycle ergo site added the vespa I requested, so if you have a bike in mind that isn't there they will add it apparently. Pretty cool.

The Yammy video was pretty sweet. I'm haggling with a neighbor right now for a pair of BSAs that I just found out he's had in storage since the 1980s. One's supposedly a hardtail chop and the other is just as it was when it rolled off of the showroom floor with 10K on it. I'll keep you guys posted.

Omg. That is my biggest fear. Being high sided in the middle of nowhere. He is right at the point where he is realizing he is about to eat it really hard.

That's what happens when you ride those stupid Hardley Turdisons through there.

not the bikes fault, its more the 40-50 something who never learned how to ride beyond the minimum skill set it took to get the m on his license trying to relive his youth thinking "he knows how to ride". Same thing as the MINI (or insert any other vehicle/bike) owners that lose it on the dragon.

True, but those 1000lb, no ground clearance for turning, noise making turds don't fit on any road like that. At least they can get their "I slayed the Dragon at 15mph while holding up traffic for 7 of the 11 miles" t shirts
