Second Tour Completed; Third Planned
Okey dokey, tour #2 since delivery complete. Used the high seat position with the Airhawk - no discomfort issues. Still wish highway pegs were possible. Still not missing the high COG from the LT.
A short tour this time. Went down to Taos first day, did the Enchanted Circle tour day 2, and returned to Denver the third day. All back roads, low(er) speeds, ~1,000 miles. Average mph - 47.2; Average mpg (according to my trip computer - I swear this is the reading) - 57.1!
Now have 5,000+ miles on the Grey Ghost. Next plan:
Saturday or Sunday - Day trip
Thursday - 6,000 mile service; new tires; safety check
Friday: Depart for Summer Tour #3:
Denver to San Luis Obispo (to Rt. 1)
San Luis Obispo to Seattle via Rt. 1 and 101, including Olympic N.P.
Seattle to Vancouver, BC
Vancouver, BC to Banff to Calgary
Calgary to Missoula via Glacier National Park
Glacier National Park to Yellowstone Park / Jackson
Jackson to Denver
I LOVE this machine!
