Only 360 miles yesterday here in Florida. Prolly 80/20 street. Started from home in Jax, the through Green Cove Springs to Keystone Heights to Interlachen, through Ocala National Forest to Salt Springs to near Silver Springs to Ocklawaha, through the Emeralda Marsh Conservation Area over to Deland, then back up US17 through Palatka on back to Jax.

Got poured on once about half way into the ride, but dried out few hours later :D. Nope....no rain gear.

Had several areas of deep sand roads, where I felt the front tire complaints I've read on here. Got squirrelly several times, but my road racing background told to stay on & maintenance throttle. Never fell, but had to put the feet down a few times. Fun times!!

Left home at 10:10am, and got back at 9:45pm. I was tired, but not like I'd thought! Guestimate I used about 4+/- gallons. The dirt roads were prolly 20-25 mph ave. Most street was 50-55 with a lot of short-shifting, but coming back the last 2 hours I was doing some 60-65 mph riding.....in a tuck position. ;) That ave. MPG is crazy, but I don't recall having another gas stop, so maybe it is legit.

Got several compliments on the bike while gassing up the few times. Good day it was! :cool:

Actually it would be 5 gallons +/-. One stop I didn't get the receipt. Still good mpg's regardless.

You need a camera. PM me your address and I'll send you one. :p I'm just poking fun. Sounds like you're having a lot of fun out there on the TW...in the rain and all! :thumbsup:

I know right? :D

My 'ol Iphone 3G doesn't do the best pics compared to today's phone, and of course I can't upload any from it even if I did take some. Before any mods to the bike, I should prolly upgrade the phone. Prolly should get a Go-Pro. Matter of time before I eat dirt on that stock front! ;)

And, thanks! Loving it thus far. Next ride, I'll shoot for more trail/dirt road riding.
