Typical news journalist sensationalism. Pick two incidents vaugely related to your story and say, "See - it's all bad." Nevermind that, as you point out, a Magna is not a sportbike or that the other motorcycle in the Harley accident was not specified. And neither appeared to be excessive-speed related - again, lack of details. Sigh - we're being ignoranced out of our sport.

Not to mention jail-time from possible hit-and-run charges. If you're gonna trailer your bike to a mountain (puh-leez), head a little further east and hit the desert roads.

They don't all curse OU, some of them curse Michigan State, Miami, Texas, and plenty of other institutes of higher learning <

Too many or too much anything is usually not a good thing. I rarely go to Deals Gap or Cherohala Skyway anymore and IF I do - weekdays (Never on a Friday) only. Like the great philosopher Yogi said, "Nobody goes there anymore, too crowded".

What do I do?....think DeLorme Gazetter. Dang! I can't spell either.

Back about a deacde ago, I had a XS1100 Vision, that took me from Los Angeles to the Modoc Plateau & back on secondary roads (mostly, where I could find'em).



Didn't see many other bikes, or cars for that matter, after Yuba CIty.



When I got to Mt. Lassen, I celebrated by exploding lava rocks the size of cantaloupes with my model 29 (8 & 3/8th). Great trip.



You could do stuff like that back then. That's why now, when I go dirt riding, I have to drive for three/four hours to get to my spot.

9mm? Why not a bb gun. About the same stopping power.



If it were me, I'd of brought the mighty Thompson Center, in .458 Lott.



Use both hands. And a vice.

Mormon girls are really horny, too. All they they want to do is breed at an early age, and go to church cotillions.



And after about 50 years of that, when they're all worn out, you can hook 'em to the plow, and hit that lower 40.



Down Bossie! That's a good girl...

The problem with defending from the Communist Threat is that you had your guns pointing in the wrong direction. A careful shore bombardment of Santa Monica and Berkeley would have been more effective.
