Default Hwy 191

Here's the first video I tried filming,the quality is terrible,but gives you a pretty good idea of what AZ 191 is like. I was riding a 1800 GoldWing and pulling a pop up camper behind the bike through the 400+ switchbacks.

We have two very popular roads here in Va. Hwy 221 (Bent Mountain) in SW County - this is where our son wrecked and Hwy 311 to Paint Bank. You will hear many, many bikes on any day the sun shines. We used to live at the base of Bent Mountain - now live about 300 yards from Hwy 311. Hwy 311 goes out to the Swinging Bridge Restaurant which is a popular stop/hangout place.

I'm in Virginia and have never done either of those. I guess I'll add them to my list.

LOL Sorry about that Mr.Trip
For some reason when I get out on the bike I always look for the most crooked and longest way home?

The rider's head doesn't always lean as far as the bike!

I was taught when dropping into a turn,drop your shoulder into the turn with your chin just about on the handle bar grip and look through the turn.
It's amazing what a little body english will do on 2 wheels....So your head will lean as much as the bike's leaning most of the time.

Uh, does that have any relation to what kind of bike you're riding? To get my chin anywhere near my handlebars, I'd have a hell of a stretch.

The bike I'm looking at buying? I'd have to almost fold myself in half.

The bike I want? Nuh uh. Not happenin. It'd be easier to autofellate.

I can totally see this on a sport bike. Oh yes, very easily. A little more difficult on cruisers or choppers with tall or wide bars and forward foot controls.

Or am I completely off base? I don't have much experience on a street bike, only had mine for a couple months now, and I've logged a little over 4 thousand miles in my lifetime, MAYBE. But I don't see me making that reach on the style of bike I prefer, or this bike I have now, which is based on the old flat track bikes of the 70's and 80's, but some idiot put mini ape hangers on...
