Good pictures, Critter!
White Shadow, imagine if you grew up in Kansas.
You've never seen a twisty road in your life and have no
idea how to ride any way but a straight line.
You come to the Dragon for the first time....and end up
in the hospital.
Happens way too much down there.

I never thought about that,interesting concept that makes total sense,my first ride on a bike at 9 years old within 50ft i had to manipulate a major twistie in the Appalachian mountains.i still only ride in the Appalachian mountains when home.one of the main differences here is that the twisties can go uphill or downhill in a 45 degree angle in a horse shoe turn

Personally, I just LOVE twisty roads. The twistier the better.
And I ride a Goldwing.
I was down there last year and rode the Dragon twice.
LOVED IT! Dragged the pegs a couple of times.

that must have been amazing.....that is one colossal adventure brother,out of this world!
Rode to Alda, NE and stood on the road where the line would cross to be on the centerline of totality. On the centerline of totality gives you the darkest view. Was a great spot to watch.

A total eclipse is something I've always wanted to see, I've seen partials, but never a complete 100% total eclipse.
I think I need to do some planning here...looks like we have a really nice opportunity in the US in 2024.

Looks like you might get wet if you try and see it in Pa, but Ohio or New York looks good for you Mike.

This is me coaching at Virginia International Raceway Aug 2019. I'm missing coaching soooooo much and hoping I can get back at it this year sometime when travel restrictions are lifted or change or life goes back to somewhat normal.
