Torreon Ride

Installed the new radiator and fan on Sat. had to mount the ignition up on the light/dashboard plate. Then off for a test ride to Toreon, NM.

Took forest roads NW of town and intersected the Fouth of July Loop and back to Tajique.

Great ride, easy dirt roads, some mud holes left from rains a week ago.

The SV650 does great on the dirt. Some minor head shake on some rougher bumps at speed but not too bad.

The new radiator is much wider than the Gen I unit I had on before, so I need to think more about protection in that area.
