No mechanical issues whatsoever. I did however go thru some fuel!!!
Got fuel in Chiefland, Homasassa, Ellenton, Vero, and Flagler!
I got gas in Bowling Green also but that didn't help the fuel milage.....
I would recommend taking along some chain lube if you decide to try this.
I haven't looked at the chain and sprockets yet but I have a feeling
that something might need a little attention there!
I'll look at it tomorrow.
Bartow HS next Sunday........

I gotta share the love......the 300 is up for the next thrashing.
Not sure if I'm heading down Saturday night or Sunday morning....

I dinged the backside of the pipe pretty goo
d last time at HP.
I'll take a
picture of the resulting 'ice damage' tomorrow!

The 950 got about 38 mpg.....not great but I was hammering on

her for long stretches at a time! A slower pace nets about 42....

She gets a little head shake when coming up on a big truck.
Feels like if you let it continue you'd have your hands full quickly.
I'm gonna have to remedy that!

There is a challenge to the call on the field of a completed Four Corners tag.



Picture and elements......



Elements kinda don't match up.....




The elements don't match up..... but this one time, and one time only, because you whipped out those minards and rode the whole thing IN ONE DAY making everyone else look like pussies.... we'll let that slide because you were AT the pier, it was late, and you were tired....

Ruling on the field stands.... Four Corners Touchdown!




(Just had to do this in case anyone else tries to get by with tags minus the required elements.... I'll cut you some slack if you have the balls to do it in one day... but if someone tries it on a multiple day ride... no dice...)

Wow....and here I thought it was location!
No really, I would have taken the picture from that spot,
but at night the pier doesn't show up. There's no lights out on it either!
I've been there before during the day but wanted to 'officially' hit them all in one day.
Here's a picture for the required element.
Same bike. Same rider.





I just noticed the SF on the hat.......Nice one!!!

Not too bad. I know a FF who got about 25mpg on one of those gas guzzlers!

Head shake you say... that just makes the ride interesting.

I assumed the pier was off because it was dark. By the time we left it was getting hard to see the pier.
