    Since I had to use my vacation to attend a funeral I decided to put this baby on the road yesterday. I went on a 530 mile round trip ride to Tybee Island GA and had lunch at The Original Crab Shack. Even with the smaller tank I was able to equal the miles driven of my other 2 bikes with bigger tanks so that was a plus. I got around 160 miles Tybee Island.jpg between fill ups. The helibars were a big plus for this 56 year old body.

    Went out early this morning through the wine/vineyard/brewery country in Norther Va. to the West Va. line.

    You aware of this? It's every second Sunday of the month. During the summer months the town is completely overrun with bikes.

    Black Widows are the best bang for the buck going. I have a full system on my ZZR1200.

    What is the sound like? I wished that Staintunes were still available but they closed up shop a year or two ago. I loved the sound they put out, a little more beefy than OEM but not obnoxious. Anyone have any suggestions of a similar exhaust system for the 6th Gen?

    They sound great... comes with easy removable baffles if you want them to be less load. I like them without the baffles. They are loader than stock obviously.

    The rain has finally left for now. So I headed West to Charles Town West Va. Came back thru historic Hillsboro Va. for this pic in front of the vineyard.
