    Ha Ha Ha Matt!
    You just want my bike because you can't keep your 500 running!
    Go back to nursing your new kiddos!

    For everyone that has been critical of Gary's riding let me say this, I've ridden with Gary several times and he carves the twisties better with a pillion than most people do riding solo. Gary may not be the best looking guy in the group and he never buys any of us lunch but he definately is a good rider :biggrin:

    @ Park, 7:20 in the video does look like where my brother-in-law laid down my 3rd Gen but I can't be for sure since it goes by pretty quick. I just know there is a little rental cabin right at that hairpin turn when coming down the mountain.

    Regards,
    Rollin

    I'm new here, but thought I'd make a comment...I used to race MX many years ago and have been riding over 40 years. I also find myself "throwing the bike under me, rather than leaning it". I think it's the feeling that you just KNOW the back end is going to slide out on you in the corner like it does in the dirt and my mind is telling me to keep my weight centered on the bike so it doesn't go out from under me. Old habits die hard.

    And, we travel some of the same routes so you must have seen me on the road. I'm the guy on the red 04 riding down the road on the back wheel. Old habits die hard.:thumbsup:
