Yep... high traffic for sure. Orlando... gotta love it. This particular curve gets a lot of backed up traffic around it due to a traffic light that is only a couple of hundred feet away. The other factor is that many of the showers are fairly brief. We have a saying down here... don't like the weather? Wait ten minutes and it will change. At least it is true for many afternoons.

Probably because I knew a few riders in my past that owned and dealt with the Harley leakage problems. Worse one I remember was an AMF built Harley.
