Default Maiden Voyage

Perfect day for a first cruise - morning ride started out mid-high 50's in Orange County Ca, took Ortega Hwy to Lake Elsinore, then south to Temecula, then east over the hills to Palm Springs where it was high 70's. Then the 10 / 60 freeways home. Bike ran beautifully. Can't believe how much better it handles the twisties than my S 50.

The dealer didn't have my windscreen yesterday when I picked up the bike, didn't miss it at all til the 10 westbound out of Palm springs. It seems like it's always real windy thru there, & I sure felt it.

once I figgr out how to attach pics I will.

Mr. Administrator, is there a SoCal filter that you can put in place so this type of thing can't be seen by those of us who have bikes in hibernation? All that sunshine in those photos is absolutely disgusting to us here in the northern half. Please help us, we're dying up here.

What were you saying? I had to leave the 'puter to go stoke the fire and empty the buckets under the leaks in the roof.
