The next Saturday I went riding with Duken. First time really riding the 919 without luggage and first time riding in the mountains!

Blasted 2,200 miles of bugs off the headlight

Started out in warm sunny weather, then before too long ended up in the snow!

There were some folks on touring bikes putting on rain gear. It was pretty chilly. I liked this Victory. Way cooler than a wing or road king imho.

Then, before we were done putting on warmer gear, the sun was out (still pretty cool though)

The weather moving around the mountains

The roads were fantastic as was the scenery

On the way home this crazy plastic bag blew up onto Duken, but he was unfazed and expertly removed it from its perch on his screen. I then ran it over and this was left on my shifter

On the way home from Duken's a train was blocking the road...

All in all, an awesome ride

Duken totally hauls, he could just dial on the power and leave me at will in a totally smooth, controlled but fast manner with the FZ1 sounding something like a turbine engine, his rear tire spinning up just a tad and I'm sure a big smile under his lid!
