Sample road. 1012, 1414, 330 and 353 were fuckin' awesome, even keeping my rev's down a bit.

No kidding!

I took the Wing to Oklahoma for an over nighter with Linda to go to the Seaba Station bike museum and watch PMRA bike drag racing. It was supposed to be in the mid 80's for a high yesterday up there. It was 95. Thank goodness for Baker Air Wings to get some air on us.










If I get ambitious, I may do a mini ride report over on TWT.

I made it to the ranch. Thought I was having a heart attack the last 10 miles. I am wearing an entire cow suit. Before I left it said high of 83 today. Oh, yeah. Feels just like 83.

All this talk of the 1190's. I NEVER heard anyone complain that the 990's were lacking in power. It seems that a fair number of riders manage to get themselves in trouble with the existing amount of power. Not sure the 1190 is really needed. The bikes that have larger motors are also larger by at least 100 lbs.

I don't know why bike makers don't offer a European delivery option. Some car makers do, but I do not know of any bike makers that do. I'd love to buy a new Triumph and ride it around Europe for a couple of weeks before letting them ship it back here.
