Re: You Should Be Riding Here
Even though it was cold and windy here today (about 50 degrees with 20 MPH winds - not exactly what you'd call 'Bacchus weather' * , I had to hit the twisties with the new Sargent seat and Scotts damper.
I've attached some photos of today's ride over the next few posts. [I'm going to set up my website soon so that I can just embed the photos into the posts, but for now attachments will have to do.]
Anyway, the ride is along the Payette River, about 35 miles from my house. It's one of my favorites - fun and scenic all at the same time.
BTW, the Sargent seat continues to impress my hindquarters! What a difference! 2 1/2 hours or so of riding today and I barely noticed it. Of course, my fingers were frozen so they were receiving most of my attention.
And the Scotts damper - wow! I never noticed any serious instability without it, but there was always a little bit of shimmy at high speed and over little bumps around corners that would make me a little nervous. With the Scotts on there, my 'Blade just tracks like a hot knife through butter. It really makes a big difference, and gives me a tremendous confidence boost whether slicing through the turns or cranking it up a bit in the straightaways.
I hope you enjoy the photos.
