    When I was visiting the Gap a couple of weeks ago I was hearing stories of a "local hero" that smokes a lot of guys on full on sportbikes while riding a Goldwing. I doubted it but you never know.

    Funny coincidence that recently a video has appeared on the net showing what I believe to be the same guy they were talking about seeing as he's also on a yellow goldwing in this video.

    I have to say, after watching this vid I can say I'm highly impressed.

    If the vid has been posted before I apologize. Point is still valid.

    Some people it works for. Others it doesn't. I'll see if I can find out the codec.

    Yeah, I know, but it's still good handling, will be fun once I get better at it.

    It's an AVI file, so it won't stream but will play until the download is completed. The file is about 9mb.

    Not actually sure. The guy in the video has pictures of him on killboy's site running the Dragon. However, this doesn't look like the dragon to me. Maybe the Cherahala Skyway or Part of Blue Ridge. I dunno for sure though.

    Side note, I'll be on the road in this video September 22 thru 25.
