I really enjoyed it also, and so did the wife, she rode with me. I did have a sissy bar pack and saddlebags, but we stayed in motels and didn't camp. Like you my gas tank is small and so after about a 100mi I'd start looking for a gas station. My back side would always need a brake anyway. I only had 2 weeks and I wish I had more, I may have to do it again!!
Riding is my 2nd hobby, i grew up riding motocross, then bought a CBR600F3, then Yamaha R1 in 2001, sold it in 2006 when we had my daugther, the immatriculation went from 320$ to 1400$ a year...., sold that sucker had my son, then this year bought a Yamaha FZ6 and modified it to be a naked (Euro version)
That's a sick Fizzer! I love those the looks of those.
Love those italian v twin's I had a 748 when I lived in Miami. Torque monster, I can't even imagine the 1098!
Always had a love for the pasta rockets.. Could never afford one on my budget though, so I'll stick to my trusty ZX-6R. =]
Far better is it to dare mighty things, even though checkered by failure; than to take rank with those who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
