Bankhead NF in NW Alabama. No 85 mph speed limits, but it was a beautiful day!

You can find out much more information here: http://mysh130.com/

And there are a bunch of highways in West Texas with 80 MPH limits, and most of those will have 85 MPH limit signs within the next year or so.

The section of SH130 that is 85 mph is from US183 southeast of Austin to IH 10 east of Sequin. The northern part is 80 mph from 183 norht to IH 35 in Georgetown. Watch for feral hogs crossing in that sothern section. There have been several collisions at speed and one motorist death from hitting a 250 lb hog at 85 mph. Steep shoulder drop off leave little room for correcting errors in control.

Don't drive faster than an angel can fly.
Don't wink at black Tenere owners or bend over to check your spokes.
May your only broken shaft be on your buddys Beemer.

I give up. I just wanted to ride the bike without all these things to remember.
Couldn't take these dreadful assaults on what's left of my manhood any more; sold my Black Tenere this weekend. Have manhood back now. Next one will be white. The blue ones suck.

It's what we don't suck is the big difference.

It's a good move on your part...

Before you know it your wrists will strengthen right up, that swish in your walk will be gone, and that lilt in your voice will disappear... Not to mention the favorable changes in your, uh... *appetite*.

But don't knock the blue ones. The only they thing suck is the atmosphere from around the black, white, silver, and gray ones as they flash right by 'em!

Actually, we know where Yamaha found train loads of the second 2012 color, and it was in YUGOslavia:

I'm feelin' better already. Think I'll go to the stealership and drool on a white one this weekend, if they're in stock. Hope they don't have any of those nasty Yugo blue ones left. Prolly blowin those out cheep to get rid of the ugly f***ers...
