Skyline K75 spotted
« on: August 05, 2019, 08:36:26 AM »
Spotted a black K75c, during a bicycle training ride  along the Skyline Drive from Front Royal (thought it might be another MB user). I heard the unmistakable whine way before it caught up, and hollered a "GO BRICK!" as it past. Picked up the pace climbing to see if the rider was going to pull off on the turn-outs...no luck. Great day for a ride, motored or not.

Yes, and thatís a great route too.  I see loads of motorcycles when I bicycle along Skyline Drive. Along with the BRP, itís motorcycle mecca out there. 

I do wish they would post some info signs cautioning motorists about blind corners, especially the uphill blind corners where cyclists are going much slower and will be overtaken in an instant.

I pull into every turn out in the direction Iím travelling, even if itís just to ride through without stopping.  I figure Iíve put the effort into climbing up there, might as well enjoy the views.  On a motorcycle you wouldnít feel the same sense of accomplishment/effort, so thereís probably less imperitive to stop regularly and take in the views.

If you see a silver K75S, or a roadracer with a "San Diego Cyclo-Vets" blue/white jersey on, holler! My Brick has a bike rack hanging off the back, and we usually start in Front Royal or Sperryville. I ride all over So. MD too. Cheers!
