Fun day in the hills

I got out and ran some good twisty mountain roads today, I bought this bike on the first day of June and have put 2500 miles on it since then. It just keeps getting better.

Mine is still a low miles bike but I have been thinking it is getting better too. Maybe it is just me getting used to it? My other bike is using less fuel than when I bought it, so.....

I noticed yesterday that I'm starting to be able to hear the bike at highway speed now, maybe the packing in the muffler is getting broken it, if that's even something that happens. The motor seems to free up around 1500 - 2000 miles, still getting over 70 MPG too! I think I'll hit those roads again today.

Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool.
