Went on a 7 hour ride this weekend...

Couple of us headed out to Borrego Springs for lunch.....went through Warner Springs...a little chilly, ....Gerbings heated vest kept me toasty...stopped ar Carlee's for lunch...ran up and down Montezuma a few times and headed back home.....whew...my body still hurts....went to the jacuzzi and found out it wasn't not...

Gotta say the Gen 4 is the greatest bike I've been on....and the Ohlins cartridges with the Elka rear shock really makes a difference....

two big thumbs up....

Need new tires tomorrow....

Good stuff. Can't say I've ever ridden that long. I'd have monkey butt for days

Ride like you pay a mortgage...

5 minutes is about our round trip when we go to Starbucks.
But we stay there for 7 hours sometimes, so I guess it could be considered a 7 hour ride... sorta right?

09' Ice Blended Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino
10' Venti Mocha Latte spilled some of it, was too hot
11' Peppermint Mocha W/Extra Shot of Espresso
12' Eggnog Venti Latte
13' Bagel
14' Standard Drip (since a Venti latte went up 20 cents)
