    Well, what can you say? The roads we as motorcyclists crave are in fact the ones that are the toughest for the "more" wheelers. I guess it is both the blessing and the curse! I guess we'll just have to be extra careful while enjoying the ride...hmmm what a thought....

    Hey - sounds like a good place for a motorcycle rally.

    But it is better than Washington DC, the poison capitol; or Daytona Beach, the suffocation capitol.

    Cool. Hope we have a good view of a dangerous intersection from the Beer Garden.

    I caught the article on MSN.com. I really liked the part about it being called "Little Chicago" due to all of the bootlegging.
