KK was built by the lead mine I think. The trucks have dominion on that road. As good as it is for bikes the trucks have no mercy.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

Yup we rode on Y, nice road. No kiding about the trucks on KK, if they get those rigs moving any faster I do believe they would be drifting the corners.

Did anyone else ride Y south of 19 to Viburnum, or A that runs west from Bunker?  Neither were smooth as glass but they were still a blast.  Y was just a "bit" greasy from the moisture and there were a couple butt puckering moments.  I definitely had fun riding those roads that I hadn't been on before, even though I am down in that area about twice a month riding.

Just glad I'm not on here reading about a dump truck running anyone over on KK, I couldn't believe how fast those trucks fly on that road.  Fast sweepers and very little traffic made that one of my highlights of the day.

I had a blast with you, Jeremy. We'll destroy that road again soon. 8)

Same to you, maybe next time I won't play chicken with a 20 ton dump truck.   :-X

Great Rally, with a great group of riders. Thanks to Tony K and his group of helpers for their efforts in making this an outstanding event. I caught this rally this year on the last weekend of a 5 week 13,000+ mile ride to the west. The Spider Ride was one of the highlights of the trip, it seems to always get better and better.
