I love riding on the Cherohala but it has been a few years since I have. Think I might take a little ride down there in a few months.

I couldn't watch that video for long, seeing that rider leaning his head in turns, not keeping it vertical as one should. Aaargh!

That bothers me cuz my brother almost killed himself not knowing to maintain a vertical head in turns. It disorients the brain and he flew off the road in a left hand sweeper - not a sharp curve at all. He was wearing a half helmet that split when his head hit a rock, cracking his skull too. Fortunately, he survived, but couldn't survive his cancer.
So its personal...OK?
