All that while he was barbecuing a chicken on the rotisserie, making milk shakes and watching a movie on the 32" TV!

Why the hate for the wingnut? Judging by his ability to ride a goldwing, I'd be willing to bet he already has a crotch rocket. Maybe he just wanted to do something different. Maybe he prefers the wing. Maybe he was going to go pick up a passenger. Maybe he just wanted to embarrass the hell out of some R1/R6 fanboi posers.

I thought it was cool.

Much agreed, that was badass.

Its like a 1990 Chrysler Lebaron coming out on the track and slaying everyone.

Hot damn, that is some serious talent!

Why thrash a Goldwing down the Gap? For the same reason you take a Ford Transit van out on the 'ring and post a 10:xx lap- it proves total awesomeness.

Waste of my time.

in a way i feel the same way, last summer when i was down at the gap, there was an event called the "honda hoot". there were goldwings all over the place. Some had trailers on them. they took up too much room and the guys were running wide in the turns and their trailers even wider. At least one time that i know of they caused a rider going the other way to run off the cliff, when i got there, the ambulance was leaving and the wrecker was pulling the bike up on a line.

I watched about 20 seconds of it and then fast forwarded to the end so I could see the crash. I feel ripped off!
