I don't know that it is really that bad Blake.

All of the "stings" appear to have taken place during summer weekends when the place is overrun with bikers. If you ride Mon - Thu, you'll probably not even see any LEOs. In the Spring there is probably even less concern.

We didn't have any problems,even after a car crash brought out the Sheriffs,it is the Highway Patrol who can be harsh.

We were just up there Fri. thru Sunday and didn't have any problems with leo's. There was a car on the gap Saturday, but we didn't hear of anyone getting stopped. For the amount of bikes concentrated on the good roads, i would say there isn't really too much of a concern.

We have way more PO presence down here :mad:

Very hit & miss - mostly MISS (fortunately!)

We were worried about the same thing last 3 trips out (July 4, early & late Sept), but only saw the sheriff patrol cruising thru once or twice each day - no actual 'enforcement' that we heard of.

Make sure to slow down before approaching the Overlook, since that's where they most frequently 'shoot radar'.
I'm also making it a practice (sometimes) to turn around before the overlook, as that is where they usually scoop up people in the 'stings'.

Just like every time you swing a leg over the bike - roll of the dice!
Do ya feel lucky, punk? Well - DO YA!! :p

Like Gummo said, We barely even saw a cop until sunday. While coming up 28 into the Gap we came thru a left hander really quick and saw a cop sitting on the side ofthe road. We all slowed down and he didn't even bother coming after us.

There was a bit of enforcement on the gap on saturday, but they both left around 4pm.

I can't wait to go back there again. :p

I was just up there last week, during the week. The only POPO I saw @ the gap were the two that were doing a personal escort for Eric Buell and the 7 bikes he brought to test run there.

The one motorcop even took one for a spin right about when I got there. Looked kinda funny with the chromed helmet and all his gear on a light blue firebolt.
