Seriously, Guys... "Tale of the Dragon"???

It's not a bedtime story about a dragon. It's a curvy road, you know? Like a dragon's tail?

Last time I rode it I was on my R1150RT with my wife, topbox, and saddlebags full of traveling luggage. I ground down both sides of my centerstand.


Thanks for correcting it. Great story. Great road.

A chick movie with guys on bikes. Sweet Jesus, it's "The Brotherhood of the Traveling Recon Kevlar Re-Inforced Pants."

I liked this DVD
A few months back, I reviewed this film and really liked it.

"The 90-minute film will entertain you, and you'll probably watch it once by yourself, and then ask your family to watch it with you a second time, saying, "Watch this. It explains why I ride."

The Wilkinson Brothers demonstrate some visual creativity in their first endeavor at film making. It's surely a carry over from their graphic arts studio. If you think this might be one of those home movies where someone straps a camera onto their helmet or bike and rides. You'll be wrong. It is a pretty good film that explains motorcycling like no other film I've ever seen."

You can read the whole review and listen to a conversation with the film producers here: DVD Review: Why They Ride at Sojourn Chronicles.

At least for myself, I don't need any movie to explain motorcycling to me. I already know what it's about.

I haven't a clue what Motorcycling is about.

Will somebody please give me a hint?

Apparently where I live its about making as much exhaust noise as you can including a lot of backfiring.

You should give up smoking if you're gonna do that...........

Simply put, I ride because I have claustrophbia and it's quicker than walking...........

On a side note, I can't believe all the fuss about 11 miles of twisties, you guys really need to get out of the city once in awhile..
