I will take this moment to give major props to Carrie for showing very smooth and controlled riding technique on mile after mile of outstanding WV mountain twisties on both wet and dry roads. She, Dave, and I were down there with a whole crew from all over the eastern half of the country. Riders from Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, New York, New Jersey, DC, and, of course, GTR.
Carrie, being forever self critical and striving for the best, is very hard on herself and ABSOLUTELY should not be.
Expertly picking nice lines at a brisk pace, smooth, no herky jerky on/off throttle, and as a result, nice speed without the "Oh Shit" moments. Noticing, appropriately dealing with, and pointing out for fellow riders the adverse road conditions that occasionaly appear. In general, just nice, quality road riding. Very nice speed with total smooth control, the name of the game. A true demonstration of nice road riding skills. And that was the general consensus from the WHOLE crew who would welcome her on any ride! Good job, Carrie! The kind of riding you want to see on a ride like that.
A good time was had by all.... I think.
BTW, Carrie, does WV have twisties?
