I love Push Mountain Road! On a Sunday morning, there's almost no traffic. I used to run it every Sunday morning on my VFR.

Now that I have an FJR, I don't ride it as often, but it's just so much fun it's almost addictive.

My F800GS has an "average speed" on the trip computer. At the end of the first 10K miles, I had an average speed of 58mph. I was quite happy with that; I attribute it to lots of long distance very early morning commuting on empty roads.

It has me slowing through turns I don't have to slow for, and running full speed into and out of a stop sign where I turn. I'd love to learn to drift, but that ain't the place to do it.

I can go like hell, right to the scene of the accident.
