    I just came back from a 13 day 3500+ mile ride to Southern California for a High School reunion picnic in Irvine. I took over 750 photos and a few hours of video. I plan on writting up the ride soon and post some pics. This video was on a section of Hwy 66 in Southern Oregon.

    I really wish I hadn't packed so much so I could have really railed this road. What a gas. More to come...

    Jay, ya think it shows a little :smile: I've put 5K on it since June 1st and just loving it more each day. I really had the opportunity to use the ABS. I do love to trail brake on the 750, but knowing you can hammer a corner and not worrying about losing traction is pretty damn cool too.

    My speed varied from about 40-70. My tire had really started to cup and going left it started to push a little, so I would lower my speed on those corners but pick it up a little on the right handers.
