Finished blogging my ride...

For those interested I finally finished blogging days 2-4 of my 'long ride'. Now I can't wait to do another one Only north this time... not into the desert.

Awesome! I love those desert roads. I'm heading east next week -- can't wait!

And on my most recent Big Ride (tm), I dropped my Strom too -- very gently. It's sort of a rite of passage.

I'd like to appologize for our wind. We had some nasty winds last week, and I'm guessing you came through right then. Tehachapi does get a lot cooler than the surrounding deserts. But, from my town there is a great ride through the windmills to Tehachapi on a secondary road. I was blown around on my way home from work that day too. I didn't get such good mileage that day.
That was one of my criteria when buying this bike, did it have the power to over power the wind? Thankfully, it does. But, it certainly gets blown around more than the GoldWing.

That's a nice blog, AND a very nice looking bike. I subscribed in order to keep up with your posts, so keep 'em coming.

I traded my yellow 2008 DL650 for a 2015 White DL650ABS, and traded that one for a new 2017 white DL650ABS. My 3rd V-Strom.
