Mike, what a great day of riding!  We are so lucky to have so many great roads in our area.  But they aren't going to ride themselves and someone's gotta do the dirty work.  :D

Your Thruxton is gorgeous.  And it sounds fantastic.  It's hard to believe those are stock pipes.





I know this is starting to sound like a broken record, but the more I ride the GT the more impressed I am with it.  BMW kinda knocked it out of the park with this bike.  Sad that they couldn't sell any, and that no one wants a sport-tourer any more.

I dunno Mike.  I think some of the CMR old-timers may have gotten old before their time (*cough*HIGHWAY*cough*CHUTCH). We'll see!

Sorry! Haven't checked here in a while.  Hopefully I can make it out to the next one.

You said you're riding a Tiger now, right?  What is your opinion of a bike like that vs something like the ZX6R for Mountain Runs?

Yeah I have the Tiger now.  I like it.  Much more comfortable but a lot bigger and heavier.   I haven't put near the miles I did on the ZX6R though. I ride so little these days that everytime I get on it I feel like I have never ridden before.

We do have the opportunity to make up for lost time though.   :)
