That looks like a great ride, and the weather looks awesome too - 66 and sunny tomorrow.

Sadly, I am still in house-buying-organizing-stuff mode and will be for a few more weeks. I could get away Sunday for a couple of hours, but not for something like this.

Next time run from him, it will make for a very interesting video.

I really wish I had thought to post that comment up here first. Excellent idea.

I did 3 Nucs yesterday, got 250 miles. Just something to do instead of out and back... Need 80 more to have it 'officially' broken in today. Probably heads towards Kings Mountain NP or there abouts, pretty nice that way. Short out and back to RPM freedom.

I hope you bring that Tiger to Hawthorne's this week - like to see it. I put a ton of miles on my RT but I'm ashamed to say that the DR still has less than 500 miles on it, after 18 months... To be fair, most of the DR stuff is local power lines at 10 or 15 miles a pop - and not enough pops.
