En route from Hungry Mother State Park to Breaks Interstate Park so followed VA Rt16.

Had to stop on the third anticline with smoking brakes. Spectacular views.
Maybe I should have got those SF brakes?

Have done the 'tail' on my bagger. Was happy I did it with a local. Cops sit on both ends timing your entry and exit. Faster than a certain time, instant ticket. We pulled over for a snack and saved the tickets for someone else.

Would feel awkward being the speed limiter for those who can, so have not ventured back in the Thingamajigger.

She has a direct line to my wallet, plays with my emotions, is consistantly jovial yet with a sarcastic and sardonic side, is consistant in her inconsistancy, and every once in a while gives me a great ride and a fantastic memory.

Rode that stretch probably 6 years ago, I don't think the police were there at the time. If they are looking to attract tourists, the cops being over eager to hand out performance awards will not help things.

It is a really nice part of the state.
