1/2 day trippin'

I got off early on thur and headed for the high country after noon. Time was short, (dinner downtown at 5:30) and I took the XR600 on the freeway all the way up and back. I got in a good run exploring some previouly traveled roads and some new too.
Yankee Jim's, shirtail canyon, sugar pine, finning mill and such.
Lost power to the accessories and had to stop and fix a wire. This caused me to have to run back as fast as I could. I could have gone to dinner in MX gear, but had just enough time to get home, change clothes, change bike, (XS650), and make it without being late!

116 miles
time away from home 4hr 46min 28sec
time riding 3hr 17min 7sec
top speed 70.8 mph
max motortemp 290f

total miles on the streetlegal dirt bike...
a 91 XR600R with a 92XR600R motor in it...
1,721 miles...(to date)

total time in the saddle so far...
62hr 49min 27sec...(to date)

"to date" is since the motor swap, plating.
Running those d606's at 65mph...wearing them down!

Here's a vid from that day...
There are no action shots!!! There is a tasty blues jam over it!
Got the camcorder out at different places I stopped.
