What are you doing over there?

Ditches have two uses:
1)water drainage
2) passing asshat harleys that are holding up traffic (bonus points if you can actually roost them from the ditch on the way by)

you were supposed to say "I was trying to roost harleys while passing them in the ditch and the snow caught me by surprise".

Iím also new to adventure touring and duel sport bikes coming off a Vic High-Ball, so itís a learning curve. I picked up the bike only yesterday and rode the 70 miles home. Even with the break in restrictions and knobbies I can tell the performance is just on another level.

The tires are fine. Thereís a slight vagueness to the steering and you can feel the front tire roll slightly, but it took all of 5 miles to get used to it. Of course coming off a 130 front tire I had to get used to the 90 following the road snakes but that too wasn't a problem.

Overall, I am extremely happy and cannot get the smile off my face. Looking forward to a long and happy relationship. Farkles will follow.


New with the old in the background:


Congratulations!!! That smile will be on your face for a long time. After all the white ones are the fastest.

That is a dirt road, so the passing-a-Harley excuse is not plausible.

Have to go with the passing-a-GS excuse.

Less effort required. And no hearing protection.

I raise you a rally tail w/hand grabs.
