The weather and views were great, but too hot for my nice Triumph Adventure riding gear. My Rev'it ES Air mesh riding gear set is awesome, great ventilation & protection, quality stuff! I love that I can wear my motocross boots with this bike, makes me feel at home...

About 1,500 miles on the bike now.

POV video coming shortly, here are some highlights from the ride:

The old coast road:

Great! Last month I did a 1,400 trip on Hwy 101 and Hwy 1 on my Tiger 800XC. My next goal is go south of San Francisco all the way to Big Sur.

Whenever we are riding, we are an ambassador to our sport

I'd rather be riding!
