    BTW, check your front ride height. Transformed the bike by lowering the front end down to the 3rd line on the forks.

    And come do a track day. She RIPS. Finally got some track rubber mounted and felt comfortable pushing a little more. MAN this motor is a peach.

    With the help of Bob and Brad, the knees are working again, I can walk and climb stairs. I just have to be careful not to twist them, that seems to be the problem.

    The V85 is more upright than my other bikes, so I got out yesterday for 200 miles, a scenic central MA ride around the Quabbin with a stop at the Petersham Country store. Empty roads for the most part, not so much inside 495, though. Temps 58*~72*

    Typical stuff. I've never met a physical terrorist I've liked.

    This is a favorite spot on rte.105 through Middleboro. Got out for about 2.5 hours today, beautiful fall riding.

    Got out on the V11 Saturday for about 3 hours, taking advantage of the sunny afternoon, this pic along 225 in Carlisle MA. It's hard to describe just how fantastic a ride this bike is ... everything about it ... and the sound ...

    Re: Where did you ride today?

    Today I took the ZRX out for a couple of hours to warm the oil for end-of-year oil and filter change, some of the usual routes I take through Concord, Carlisle, Acton MA, with the usual return blast on Route 2. Monday I went out on the V85 [EDIT: 2020 Moto Guzzi V85TT Adventure] for a few hours, 150 miles, nice roads in Central MA. My usual coffee etc. stop in Petersham, then decided it was looking cloudy and colder in the direction of NH, so I took 32A south through Hardwick, then over to Oakham, new pavement on Cold Brook Road, Barre, Princeton ... and home. Sunny and 50s is fine with layers, as it gets colder I'll plug in the heated gear. Much less traffic weekdays than weekends IME.

    Yes, 2020 Moto Guzzi V85TT Adventure. No pic of it from Monday's ride, I hardly stopped, just for coffee. Think I might have to sell the V85TT. My knees are working, but I'm just not confident on the Guzzi any more.

    Re: Where did you ride today?

    I took my WR250R and XSR900 to a small 1-mile track called Horse Thief Mile at Willow Springs International Raceway. Had some fun with my buddy recording on a '20 Street Triple RS

    Here's the WRR with a little slide on exit:


    And here's some goofing off with the XSR late in the day, trying to get some decent wheelie pics for the photographer in the green shirt:
