I was in my car; I would not expect a wave.

Shawn, nice report. Sounds like a fun lunch ride!

I'm also surprised with the Versys. For what it is and how much they cost, that thing is a little 3rd gear backroads rocket ship.


I know not of what you speak. (Both that "Sport Mode" and the 3rd gear thing).




HA!

Talking

vivid dada sez:

"We went to MIllersburg and picked up the Port Washington Road, very nice, the Port Washington Road turned to dirt, but it was a perfect first time of pavement experience for my buddy on his maxi-scooter; hard pan Amish roads with very little gravel. We rode it back to Baltic."

At Baltic, you were 6 miles from my house....if you had continued on the Port Washington Road to Fiat, you would have been maybe a mile from the house....

I have explored a fair amount of the lower portion of the Port Washington Road on the Victor, need to do the whole thing one of these days on the DR....

I called Title and Vehicle Information Services and they confirmed I could get temp tags with just a bill of sale. So I went to the Westerville Deputy Registrar License Agency and they told me a BOS from a dealer would be OK, but not from another person.

I'll try another office, but it looks like I'll probably have to wait on the title.

Shawn, we get pictures of your nasty wrinkled fingers but no food pics? If you ever ride down by Atlanta, try Hudson's Hickory House.

Thanks... and FYI, WL called me for interview, I told them I was no longer interested. Appreciate your letting me know about that, though!

So, did you know, to install Yamaha side cases, you need a Torx TT50 (security torx)? Trip to Lowes.

So, did you know, to install Yamaha Lock Cylinders, you need a Torx TT10? Trip to Advance Auto.

Yeah, it took a while to bolt on.

I even added some stickers before the test ride. I did NOT exceed the Max recommended speed with all the cases on.
