Riding the local twisties today, sun was up, it rained a lot last week, and the are bugs were out in force. Every time a modest size or bigger bug hit my helmet, I heard "PINK". It made me laugh...

What a wonderful ride today. Only had time for about 1.5 hours, but oh man was it sweet...

"wingin' it!"

:D

It really was a great day wasn't it...

Started out doing some adjustsments that I haven't been able to do before, took a test drive out to Coburg and back .. made a few more adjustments ... a little later Karen finished reading the book she was absorbed in, and we both hopped on Rosenburg and took a ride to see how it works for us.

Love this Wing... what a pleasure to ride... and the more I work with it, the better it keeps getting...and the weather here in the Southern Willamette Valley just keeps getting better...paridise on earth, but don't let the rest of the world know it..:)

Hey... I assume that since your user name is Thomas, that your name is Thomas. I am a rocket surgeon, huh:cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1:

Since you know the area, I thought I would tell you my route home on Friday... I live in Cottage Grove. I took beltline around to west 11th, south on Bertleson till it dumps into Loraine Hiway, south to Territorial, and then I rode all the way to Gardiner. When I got there, I turned around and went back to Loraine, and then over to CG. Nice ride...



We need to go for a ride sometime...

The Loraine is a nice ride... and spectacular country side to enjoy it in.

I have only had Rosenburg a couple of months,been mostly fixing some issues before I ventured too far from home with it... but it's beginning to run pretty good... good enough that I wouldn't mind heading a little south to have a cup of coffee and a short ride... let me know.

Tom ... cruzin lifes highway on a wing and a prayer,with manual in the saddlebag of course...

:baffled:Okay guys about those bugs, you've got a bug heading at you at 5mph, you're headed the other way at 70mph. When you hit the bug with your headlight the bug has to reverse direction. If the bug reverses direction there must be an instant when it's stopped before it accelerates in the opposite direction. Since it was on yourheadlight when it stopped, yourheadlight must have stopped too, did your bike also stop?:stumped:

Ya know, I can answer that question through some careful scientific analysis, if you will answer one more question. What color was the bug?:action:
