600 miles for dinner in Kalispell Montana
*What the heck, nothin special planned for Memorial day and not mowing my lawn until my newly ordered Sears High end Lawn Tractor comes in - so my S/O and I decide to head out to Kalispell for an overnighter....Her on the FJR1300 and me on my 05 LT "Vroomhilda"..... Had a bad case of *NewBike-Ites recently but this fast and furious run up thru LOLO Pass and FlatHead lake and circled back via US Highway 2 passing alot of HD's like they were standing still, thru alot of construction, rain and terrible MONTANA drivers (The worst I have ever personally witnessed)
made me again believe no other bike can handle the rigors of fast riding, great protection and handling like the LT did....Averaged 46 mpg strafing thru the mountain passes in 4th gear & 52 mpg alittle more slowly coming back ,on regular unleaded and the FJR 45 mpg. If anyone heads out there the 4 Seasons Restaurant has a great Ribeye steak and we even discoved a new delicious Beer called; Stella Antois... Yummmm.
Back home now........Gonna sleep good tonight.
