I'm very keen on taking the Titan, but I will admit it isn't the funnest bike for the city. I don't think I told the BAVR guys, but I also picked up a Lambretta about a month ago. I love the lammy and I might just ride that instead. Truthfully, the CB350 is the idea bike for the city, it is just so nimble and quick around the corners!
I think you should ride the FZR, but I realize that's breakin rules. Would love to see your strada in person after all this time!

Love the old bikes, thanks for posting!!
Anton is a great guy, and pretty infamous around these ADV parts because of that whole scooter engined BMW debacle a few years back. Great story though! Anton also won the 'best rider of the year' award by a landslide.
come on a ride with us, larry!

We loaded up the bikes after the awards banquet, and made it back to the city around 1:30 pm on Sunday night ...
I'd like to ride more of route 70 and the feather river, how soon do we need to head back up there in order to avoid the snow?
Loaded up after the awards banquet but it was 1:30 AM when we rolled into town, and I was dead asleep, apologies for the snorin'. Next year I either need Monday off, or I'll bring a truck from the get go.
I'm still proud of the Titan making it from San Francisco to Nevada under it's own power!
