I love the Big Girl!

Just came back from a short (1 1/2 hour) ride since the good riding days are nearing an end here in the Northeast. Every time I take her out, she reminds me why I put up with the difficult maintenance, chance of FD failure, etc. What fantastic handling for a big bike. Relocating to Arizona is looking better and better because of the longer riding season.

Likely a bit longer yes. But consider the 115 degree "dry" heat. It's like an oven when slammin' down the road. So in mid summer you're wearing a t-shirt, we mesh. Winter you mesh, we textile/leather with liner/warmer. So we find it difficult to ride in snow/ice. At 35 and below it's a consideration. For you it'll be at 95 and above... We get fresh clean cold air in off seasons, you get hot, oven, cheese melting stank in the summers. I don't know but perhaps we might be even...

(PS) I would love southern CA. Anywhere from Monterey south... Beauty, temperate, ... oh yea - fires...
