it was a fun time. fingers didn't get cold until the last five minutes of the ride. as long as I've been riding I know the conditions all too well to know what the bike and/or I are able to do. I wasn't even pushing it. not once. now if I didn't have bald tires on front and rear I might have. I was happy enough being able to ride and wasn't feeling like backing it in nor out on them nice gravel infested roads.
My advice to anyone that would try and ride that fast on these roads would be NOT to if you haven't put on hundreds and hundreds of miles on the same ones like I have to know where each crack, buckle, dip, pot hole, man the llist goes on and on..
it's my turf. I know what I'm dealing with.
And I purposely hit the double yellows at times just to get a two wheel slide out of it.
cold tires = more fun for me
not to mention these modern day sportbikes are lightyears ahead in handling and stability compared to the old 70's 80's and 90's bikes I used to rail the piss out of.
ohh, it's a sportbike.com cam mount. check out my THREAD
on my forum.
nutz, these roads don't have much on the roads up near you, just head out to Plymouth and go south on 67 or kettle morain scenic drive and head south. Awesome sweeps and twisties up there compared to jefferson county, unless yer hittin up the south kettles, then there's some wicked stuff too.
