Anyone this type ???
I barely get to ride at all! But boy do I enjoy it! My favorite thing is I always feel like i'm breaking the law! Hard to belive this much fun is legal?45 mph seems to be my favorite speed,Just about anywhere!single bike runs , two up ok too. Lots a work to keep track of other riders. 07 G650X-Country ,lite as a feather goes like the wind.09 :GSA what more can I say.
Weekend Rider, average around 500 miles/ weekend. Usually ride twisties.
we are not daily commuters or 'nice day for a ride' folks.... for the most part. We like to have a distant goal and plan for it. Could be coast to coast the long way or some nice little ride to the White Mountains in New Hampshire. Maybe over to the Mississippi and down to NO. So far the plan has been a blast!! - Bob

@ mgalison: Not me, I don't have the throttle control skills, or the nerve, for that kind of riding.

my little red mule is my only transportation (besides a bicycle) so i fall into both catagories. groceries and long rides.

I really dislike being in any car. Long trips in a car kill my back. I will pick my bike over my old pickup truck for any place I must go. Going is key for me. I commute to work on two lane twisties on a motorcycle or bicycle daily. I love to take long trips. I will ride dirt, twisties or slab all day, I really donÔÇÖt care, I love them all.
TizÔÇÖ a major quirk of my personality, but, the only time IÔÇÖm completely relaxed and comfortable is when IÔÇÖm on two wheels, bicycle or motorcycle, it does not matter.
I am mostly a weekend rider, but, on paved surfaces. Not like the guys in the video. I felt as if I should put on all my gear just to watch .
Hope they are still alive!

BETTERMENT THROUGH BADGERMENT
Hey James, I would say I'm all of the above. I love the freaking machine. I'm up for small rides to town, traveling long distance or bebopping the backroads around here for entertainment.
I especially enjoy long distance at my own leisurely pace on hi ways and bi ways with a faint idea of where I could or should be. I don't load myself down with exact routing or hard plans. It's fun to stop and look at a map, have a smoke, and figure it from there. Like Bob say's an idea of a destination and the fun is getting there.

I used to use the Triumph to commute, 20 miles round trip, and for quick 50-60 mile trips through the back roads around town. But, now that I have my Roadster, I typically pick a town on the map, 80-100 miles away (retired, so I got time), and go for lunch. I even sat down to plan out my 5k+ mile trip this summer from TX to OR for the rally, then back home via MN. Can't wait!
