Well... I wanted to take my new toy out for a long spin and I found the perfect road to do it. From Socorro to Magdelena (sp?) is about 75 miles round trip. Almost all strate with a few twisties in it I made it there and back with no problems at all. Beautiful day all around, so I wound up riding with a bunch of other bikers (mainly Gixxers and HDs). For my first time bringing the speed above 55, it wasn't bad at all. I just got a little freaked when I took what looked like too steep of a twisty at 60. I think I might do this every weekend!
