It's not the bar as much as it is I feel like the whole bike is going to vibrate apart. The gel gloves work well, but it's an all-over shaking that's getting to me. My mirrors worked themselves loose on the Ridgeville run.coffee_brake wrote:The Savage is an evil machine for long distances.
It is a fun, simple bike that is light and narrow and fantastic for around town and shorter trips.
But I am not woman enough to ride a Savage across the state much less the country, I think SCGurl is being very smart. It would just hurt no matter how many alterations she made to try to get around it. It's time for a second, long-distance bike! And...if you were to find yourself with a better long-distance machine, you might change your mind about the conference...
(I'm from Charleston, that stretch of interstate up to Ridgeville is insane.)
Well, Daytona's out of the question this year as I have nobody to go with me. So, that saves even more money for the AMA conference. Lion, you're in MD right? When it gets closer, you wanna finalize routes and cross paths somewhere around day two? I'm definately good for at least 600 miles a day of interstate, probably 450 or more on the side roads.
versys is a very cool bikeMZ33 wrote:I guess St. Louis traffic is going to be mucky for a while--there's an above-average amount of construction from what I understand. It also has a higher-than-average crime rate.
Yup, love the Versys. Love, love, love it. And that's when it's cold out. I'll love it even more tomorrow, when it's 55 degrees!! 'course, I dropped it today practicing slow-mo manuevers. The hard saddlebag is scuffed, and the clutch lever a little dinged, but that's all. I should have stopped practicing a minute sooner, but, noooo, I was so pleased with how small I could circle, I did serpentines close to a curb. The curb was only a mental issue--I never touched it. But I had lost throttle, and instead of using more throttle, I went and looked at it. Amazingly, it was still there . . . and down we went. Poor bike. I apologized to her.
I figure how ever many are interested in "sharing" and how many are inclined to share a bed or need one to themselves, etc. That will dictate how many rooms/beds I should look into.MZ33 wrote:How many roommates are you looking for?
