    Go test ride one. If feels so light compared to my 99 R11RS. COG must be about 4 in off ground. I was amazed. And it looks even better in person.

    Any Ducati, or perhaps a Speed Triple or Daytona; KTM would be great for off road but I don't think it would be a very satisfying road bike. UJMs just have no appeal... ditto HDs

    another typical parkway view. most of the ride you're tunneling thru forest of one type or another, depending on elevation. Could be hardwoods, or fir, and there are thousands of acres of mountain...

    I went southbound, back towards NC. I can hear all the rounders groaning, but it was cold up there. Spring is still a ways off in the high country. Down on the flats we've had leaves on the trees...

    A decent shot of what the countryside along rt 8 looks like. Runs thru a series of narrow valleys, and over the ever larger ridgelines approaching the Blue Ridge. It's not as demanding as 89, but...

    Course, rt 8 is no dull ride, especially near Danbury, and again up by the BRP. About halfway is Stuart, VA, hometown of JEB Stuart, the confederate general. Yeah, the war's not quite over yet. ...
