I don't live very far from Deal's Gap, about 70-75 miles. I try to stay away for the most part because of it's carnival atmosphere, but when I do visit once or twice a year, I usually do it during the cooler months or early morning midweek.
I took out the K1 this morning and headed to the Gap, it had been a year or so since I had been there. My plan was to ride just a couple hundred miles in the mountains and return by early afternoon before it got so hot.
Here are a few snaps from my old Nikon I keep handy. This isn't the first time I've found the road blocked. It may very well be the riders fault here, it appears the rider just ran into him from behind, I never did get the details. I just don't under stand why these truck drivers are so determined to use that narrow crooked road, they take up both lanes when they do. There are signs warning them not to try, but so many insist on using it anyway.
I saw the ambulance leaving with the rider and was told that it appears that he will be fine. He has some broken bones, but was conscious and speaking.
