I love blistering Deal's Gap.  On the weekdays anyway, when there is a shortage of cops and squids.

Example of running it a bit too hard for the bike right here..... so be careful

People have been trying to go fast since the beginning of time.  It has nothing to do with video, youtube, news, internet etc.  Some of us are just adrenline junkies and that will never change.  Most likely anyone on this forum that put a leg over a bike for the first time saw the same appeal.  The picture of Roland Free in his swimsuit setting a motorcycle speed record should be banned from publication!  This is human nature, that is why we can travel faster than the speed of sound, why mankind made it to the moon.  A very well produced video isnt going to promote or discourage people from doing what people are going to do.  I have seen 1000 anti smoking videos and guess what I plan to do after this post.  If people are upset with how other people ride, please trade in your "Sport" tourer for a Prius and please move your slow arse to Florida!

My avatar is from the dragon. Rode it for the first time a couple of weeks ago. We did it up and back before 8am to avoid the crowds. Very fun road if you don't go over your ability. I was with JamminJerry so I told him to just wait for me at the gas station; I would get there eventually  :). I would recommend going early if you have to ride it on the weekend. Beautiful area to ride. The scenery and the roads are hard to beat.

Here's my best Dragon video. I know I can't ride it like the first guy but I'm a Michigan flat lander so I think I did pretty good. If you live there you could probably ride this road in your sleep. I love it down there but I also know how dangerous it can be.

The speedometer I cut in is not accurate to the speeds I was riding, I did that just for fun.

Thanks Jimmymac. This was my second time down there on my Concours, the first time the bike was new and I was a bit more timid. I had a blast. No way this old man will ever ride like that original video.
