He does look a bit like St. Nick. Alas, I think I would rather get some coal.

yep, warnings. Deep, with as many falls as you have taken do you even remember what a ticket looks like?

Funny thing was that he actually had a twinkle in his eye. I'll try to do the rest of the ride report before I go to bed.

So we go out for a cruise. This was a slow pace 2x two-up ride down 66 and then through some 'back roads ' to Skyline DR.

No clouds. Just a little chilly in the mountains. Perfect day to ride.

I did the 'drag the route around on google maps' thing and arrived at some extraordinary results. A couple of turns off of 66 and we were on what would be best described as a goat path. I mean I was positive that I was going to drop it.

Steep descents. Rocks. Mud. Ruts. If I thought I could have stopped to take a picture, I would have. It was actually the most fear I had on a motorcycle in a long time. I just had to keep it moving and let the suspension and natural stability of the bike do it's thing. I have a new respect for it now.

We putted through Skyline as one must. This was more of a picturesque pace than anything else. Take in the sights. Don't draw the attention of the blood thirsty rangers. Get your $10 worth and get out alive.

We were doing a good job of this until about 1/2 mile before the 211 exit where we getting off. The last few miles I picked it up a bit. It was getting cold. I was getting a little fatigued. Lucy was squirming.

Then we met 'jolly old Saint Nick' coming the opposite way.

I saw him turning around and we just pulled in a lookout that was right there.

He checked our records. His policy is that if you are going below a certain threshold and you haven't been sited there before, he cuts you loose with a written warning. He claimed they keep records from 3-5 years. I guess it was 3 for me, because that would just exclude my last visit there.

I was cited for driving too fast for the conditions, passing on the double yellow, and 'excessive leaning in the turns'. The ranger was also, let's say, displeased that I was driving in VA with a MD license, and had a bike that was registered in FL. He asked me to turn around and leave the park. He had me dead to rights though. It was foggy and I didn't see him following me for miles.

Excalibur and whatever Dan calls his old man bike.



Obligatory look-out view.



This was Dan performing some kind of stunt high atop a deadly ravine.



You point and shoot your whole life waiting for something like this. You can't train for it. It just happens. Like magic. Dan leaps. LucyTooth looks on.

Yeah, I was actually chuckling a little.

Just as a reference, Santa was saying he caught a couple of guys going 90 once and took them right to the judge. Then they went to jail.

Earlier in the day, he pulled over a few guys who were going the exact same speed as us. They turned out to be NYC cops. They were giving the same 'it was cold' excuse as I did. Dan was giving him some BS about his sprocket change, it was Easter AND his B-Day, he 'was only following me', and his spotless record.
