I hit the road a little earlier than I would have because Gustav had come on-shore and was heading our way. I went back up TX-6 to I-35 instead of playing on nice roads because I didn’t want to get backed up in evacuee traffic, especially on I-45. The ride went well, averaging 47 mpg over the trip. The seat really needs to go. I’m looking at a Corbin, but I’m going to be saving my pennies for a while for that one! I’m going to check with the club members to see their opinion, and barring any any negative feedback or advice on something better, I’ll have one before the long road trip.
Other than my sore rear end, I don’t have a single complaint about the bike’s performance. It’s a great mile eater!
