dude on a chopper

went riding sunday on 3090 for the first time and was going around a blind curve when all of the sudden this guy on a chopper comes hauling in the opposite direction. i think he was going to fast because he ending up half way into my lane and passed me about a foot away from my bike near taking me out. not sure if he even made it around the curve, but he was with a group so if he didnt... 3090 and the forest ride was nice

I can tell you that from afar watching one lean deep in to a corner is pretty bad , so I can't even tell you what it looks like coming at you.

choppers and cornering do not go well together...it is not what they were designed for...they are more for swooping thru gentle bends in the road, their thing is stability in a straight line...

Around every blind curve and over every blind hill the road is either not there or occupied by something nasty.

It's pretty easy to tell if it's a blind curve. They have those dark glasses and that pointy white stick with a red tip and a German Shepherd sittin next to them.
