Nope, Avenue of the Giants. I took the new bike up to Rick Mayers near Redding for a new seat and decided to hit 101 and the big trees on the way home.

Don't know if these have been posted, I thought they would be helpful detail pics. Sorry if a repost, I looked through all 58 pages of this thread and don't recall seeing them on here.

I have loads of pics but I will try to select a few of my favorites and get them up soon.
Nice pic! Looks like you had a good time. Nice to see that you are safe and sound chosing this as your first bike!

Love how the bike was used. Ride on.

Here are a few of pics from a spring ride that started in the NWT and Yukon. Sorry the bike doesn't look all that great; but the scenery is pretty cool...

I have that in smoke on my 650 twin, I like it a lot, it's not as wide as some (but some wider screens prevent full turning of the handlebars), but it still does a pretty effective job with minimal "flapping" at speeds (since it doesn't have a brace as does the BMW high screen, you can notice only slight movement)... I was originally going to buy the BMW high but after seeing the screen and required backing was something like 357 bucks I decided to give the MM a shot at something like 140 ish? Can't remember, either way, worst case is you don't like it and you send it back, but I'll be keeping mine, very pleased...

Off to the desert!

It was only a pavement run, but nice to get out for the night.
