During my ride on the Gap, met a motorcyclist, waving to slow down and pointing off, then a State Trooper around the next curve, same thing waving to slow down and pointing to pull off.

I slowed but wasn't going fast anyway, next curve I met the 18 wheeler swinging around the curve taking all of the road plus some of the opposite shoulder.

He or I wasn't going fast, but there are not a lot of places to pull off, I found one tho, no problem.

Yeah... watching those videos is pretty spooky, but what really scared me straight was the caliber of the YouTubers and their comments... Yikes!!! eek

After watching a couple of those, I get the feeling that the Tennessee LEOs don't give a hoot about motorcyclists, and view trucks as an ally in discouraging motorcyclists.

There are plenty more roads in that general area, without the BS.

If you check out the license plates on the trucks, they are mostly locals. You can draw you own conclusions.

+1 on too many riding the Gap.
