Just did over 650ks this weekend. I had to stop every 120ks. I'm used to it, my last bike was the same.

Nothing like a shovel motor rumbling down below. I just did a quick run up to Clare (130 miles) Sat night and went to swap meet this morning. Took secondary roads so there was very little traffic and just blasted along. At 70mph my open pipes give out a great ripping sound expecially if my hearing is unencumbered by those funny things we are supposed to put on our heads. Set my sleeping bag up vertically against the sissy bar so had a full length backrest and rode leaning back, one handed most of the way. Couldn't be more betterer!

It's a good feeling. I went with some buds. I stuffed my sleeping bag in a back pack. I don't have much space on the bike. Am thinking about a sissy bar set up.

I see where you're going with that bike but man that tank used to have a sweet paint job that Steve did for you.

Should have just got a new Alien for $100..

Actually making a new tank for it, Alien has the wrong shape for this bike, but it will do for now.
