Tonight's news of interest...
Figuring we have lost nearly 6+ weeks of riding time already, and it was SO nice out tonight, WE decided to take the LT out about 9pm and do what it was built to do. 15 mins from the house and we are on one of the better roads the area has to offer. We come to a very wide open, excellently surfaced passing area to get past the car in front (the only one on the road except us).....and from out of nowhere, it appears to be a large bear coming out from behind a large mound in the process of crossing the road. YIKES!
The fact we have had numerous visits from large black bear in the yard it was not an outrageous first assumption.
Too late to do much, I figure either the guy we are passing or someone is going to hit this monster.
Turns out, it was a kid on a quad, no lights, nothing at all, pure black. Had he not had the power on that machine it apparently had, it could have turned ugly. I doubt he anticipated anyone coming at him that fast & might have needed to change his shorts when he got home.
Whew, glad to be able to report we escaped another too close a call.
Other than that, WOW, what a great ride! The bike is so smooth, the COM system worked, the speakers all work.......now if I just get the CQ/HID installed (just got here today), we will be all set.
