This was my 1983 Honda Magna V65, which I rebuilt after a racing accident in 1993 (which actually is what steered me into a career in medicine). I painted it Amazon Green Pearl (a Porsche color from that era). Here I am drag racing a Vmax, which I beat only because the Vmax driver didn’t know what he was doing.
Probably should’ve created a proper new thread for all of this!
Nice!! I did a similar trip years years ago with a friend with similar model Kawasaki. I was driving a BMW. Skyline drive to blue ridge, tail of dragon to “ back “ of tail of dragon( preferred the latter!). And cherohala skyway was outstanding!! Riding these roads on a good handling road bike is special. Leaning , accelerating, braking, you become part of the road! A feeling even a good sports car can not match!!
Looking forward to do some riding in Europe, Dolomites my goal!!
Well, since this thread has morphed far beyond the original subject, let me add to it. I’ve been hacking away at the Washington Back Country Discovery Route (WABDR), on my KLR 650. This is a shot of Mount Rainier, beyond an alpine lake, near Chinook Pass.
