What!!??!! A max speed of only 87mph? Wimp!

Summerinmaine.... I know the exact spot you are talking about in Florence. My parents live there now. Next time I visit them I will snap some pics of the area and send them your way.

And... yea... 87... that's like 9K in 3rd! Come on!

Nice RR. I am thinking of doing a similar trip and was wondering how much time it took you start to finish?

Thats pretty cool. It seemed like you were not in a rush to get anywhere.

Burnt buns.

Great RR! Got a tentitive for March of this year, looking forward to it. Great score with the 990! Bonus for your pillion was the Renazco and the FMFs! Stock would have been miserable on both counts.

Great report, found your RR from your reply on my other thread.
Just finished Baja a month ago solo and want to go back 2-up soon.

That's why I'm shopping for a 990.
