We ended up in a great place. Pictures don't do it justice. Caught dinner out of that stream/river.

My Dad taught me how to fish. He loved it. i thought it was the most boring thing on the planet (still do). But I will say that the perch he'd bring home were always the best  Inlove

A bad day fishing is really a good day doing a lot of other things.      Bigsmile

I left about 8:45a and went up to the top of the mountain. 100 miles round trip. Got back at about 11:00a. Very nice and cool. I saw a mamma deer and two little fawns that still had their spots. Born this Spring for sure.

Took a picture of the bike with the Delkevic silencer I had from the Bandit 1250. I put it on yesterday. Looks way better than stock. IMO   Bigsmile

Leaving this Friday to Creede, Co for lunch. 250 miles from my home. Going to meet a buddy that lives in Gunnison, Co. 500 mile round trip for the day. Sure is a great ride.

Nice!

It isn't the miles - it is the road type. I used to ride from Seattle to Castlegar (BC), leaving Saturday morning for the 500 mile ride there and then coming home on Sunday. But the roads were awesome so a 1,000 mile weekend was never a problem, and it was a great excuse to visit my friend Jim (bubba zanetti)


Back when I actually had to stop and get off the bike to take photos  Lol

Your getaway sounds like what I like to do!! The road to Creede is a great one. Too bad some of my riding buddies won't do that sort of ride.           Sad               500 miles in a day? Too much for them.

Was this merely a motorcycle trip or were there other motivations involved here?  Lol Bigsmile

Hey -- we're making progress --- I knew if I kept it up I'd wear you down eventually...  

start by painting it frog green or Ferrari Red -- those are the best color for any bike....

Went up to the top of the mountain after church. Just beautiful up there. Real green and I keep seeing deer every time I go.

Went out Saturday morning a bit early to beat the traffic. I wanted to go up the mountain again. Had to pull over once I got on the freeway because I got cold!!! Had to put on some insulation under my vented jacket. Once I started up the mountain I looked in my mirror and there was a sport bike on my tail. Couldn't tell what it was but I "put some coal in the fire" to see if he was a wannabe. He's on my tail!!  OK, my competitive side comes out. Sort of like Jeckle and Hyde. I start paying attention now and we're past the "sporting speed" limit and I haven't ridden this new to me GSX S1000 this fast yet. On the brakes hard, pouring the gas on as early as I think the tire can handle, hit a couple of relines in the lower gears and this guy is still on my can! I can pull him a bit on the very short straights but he gathers me back up in the corners!!         So we get to the top and have a very nice discussion. He rides a Kawasaki Z900 with sticky Michelins. His second Z900 after many 600s and such. He says he lives on the mountain and rides every weekend up and down. Been doing track days at near expert speed.

I'm mad now!  I have to get some good tires!!
