35 foot waves would be interesting. Years ago, I was part of a scuba dive / rescue team in Petoskey. We got a call and took the boat out for a capsized vessal. It was a nice sunny day but very windy. Anyway, there were three of us sitting in the bow of the boat in our wetsuits ready to go in the water. The waves were 10 to 15 ft. Every time the boat would hit the peak of a wave, it felt like we were flying, and then it would come down and we would basically be submerged for a second when we hit the low spot.

Point is, we were having fun as it was nice and warm and we were dressed to get wet anyway, but I couldn't imagine being in waves easily double the ones I was in. That would be pretty insane.

No objections here, unless it warms up significantly in the next few days (not in the forecast). My range is about 30 miles with temperatures in the upper 30s/low 40s putting the thumb area well out of reach.

I should know in a few hours, but Sunday may be opening up for me.

What are you shaking down, a new bike?

Yea I drank the Orange kool aid .

Tomarro picking up a 990 Adventure . I was going to wait a little longer but I think that 1190 is just to much for what I want to do .

After the couple trips I've done and 30,000 miles it's time for a upgrade to something a little bigger .
Kinda hate to see the old girl go she was just about all farkeled .

Now I gotta start all over .
