I’m still riding, no bikes in the basement yet.
It's 2C here (in Vernon) this morning with a bit of 'freezing mist'. Insurance comes off today and I don't see any point of risking a "last ride" LOL.
My 'riding season' consisted of one three week trip up North and a few day trips here and there. One of the highlights was a side trip out to Telegraph Creek on the way South back Hwy 37 this year. Here's what that road looks like now:
Got out yesterday for probably my last multi hour ride. Took the 1100S for a spin over to Port Rexton to have a quick visit with Townieglen. Good run back only 2 hours $ 45 min even with the last hour up from the highway in the dark. I did not stop for any scenery but I did end up with 4 gas stops. I was pleased to find it runs just fine on regular gas. Hit some wet roads and a little sprinkling near Clarenville. It was still 11° when I got home!
The new 12” screen works well, I tested it up to 200kmh on the clock and the side benefit seems to be a little more wind on my shoulders taking a little weight off my wrists. My hands did not fall asleep at all in 6.5 hrs and they were in 1/2 hour with the 17” screen.
That’s a sharp looking bike, Mike.
It is amazing how a few small tweaks in ergonomics can result in big gain in comfort.
Enjoy the last of the riding season out there.
It can be a long Winter!
Thanks buddy, it’s a pleasure to ride too. Fun little beast, I’m reminded why I fell in love with them 20 years ago.
