You know it might would have been easier to chew through that tree then to lay that bike down and drag it underneath.

First day of summer...

Was a beautiful day for a ride Saturday!

Started the day of right with a fantastic breakfast burrito at Penny's Place in Perth.

Followed up 400kms of some great riding!

I like that idea, I am going to find one of those! However it was quicker and easier to drag it, especially since it was near 90F and high humidity. Our 950's aren't garage queen material, we have no problem adding to their character and patina!
