What a perfect day for a ride

Went to North Carolina via Blairsville, GA yesterday, and back. Perfect weather, leaf chasing RV's and tourists not yet out clogging the roads.

350 miles later back home and the grin on my face feels permanent. Tires scuffed to the edges and I never even felt like I was riding at more then 60%. God this bike is fantastic. . So with 1600 miles on her now I can happily say I have ZERO problems (except that damned pillion seat incident...I'm still apologizing to Gina for leaving it loose). Even the steady 6500rpm cruise surge was unobtrusive yesterday (still waiting on ECU from Cagiva). Plan to do it again next weekend...I just hope the weather is as perfect.

Found a piece of armco at a scenic overlook where someone had painted Gina's name, so my friend took a shot of the 2 of of us together (a few more shots in my album...I'm a lousy photographer).

In your best guess, how long before those areas are invaded with motorhomes and blue hairs leaf-viewing?

A group of us are going to come down and ride, but don't want to get into a bunch of slow moving gawkers.

You have a couple of weeks. Leaves are really just now starting to turn.

Ride quickly, but safe. Maybe I'll see you in the curves.

Yeah, yesterday was great but today (Monday) was even better. Two tanks of gas, 350 miles, hundreds and hundreds of curves and 15-20,000 feet of accumulated elevation gain/loss. The roads were virtually deserted.

That Pearl white on your R looks great. Saw one at the shop the other day. Pics simply don't do justice to that color scheme. Ride safe.

Had a good run out with my MV homies in French Alsace over the weekend.
Weather is turning chilly but it was still OK for our last ride out

Whatch you talkin' bout, Willis? Two tank of gas and 350 miles? That can't be a Brutie. Can an F4 go 175 miles between fillups? What were you riding?

910R, S4RS Monster,'78 BMW R100S, Heritage Softail, Chrome V-Rod, Sportster 48, Kawasaki Concours 1400, '07 Ultra Classic with sidecar, yellow Vespa LX 150, a cool little Ruckus, and a very understanding wife........

The Brute. Rode a few miles before the first fill up but I get almost 35 to the gallon.
