Absolutely. They are on my procurement list for our Alaska trip this year.

Just a suggestion;
You may want to carry at least a pair of tie down straps in case you break down and have to have it hauled somewhere. You never know if a tow truck will have the right stuff so as not to tear your bike up.

Awesome you know the spot. Ortega is my Local Road. Learned all kinds of things on that road and crashed my 1980 Secca on it. The Picture is nice as it's a clean shot of the lot and The Lookout. You'll like this one too, the hang gliders view:

I rememebr teh glider pilots were always at odds with the hang glider pilots. They were both fighting for the same thermals.

18° C in the middle of Winter ?

All I can say is that it was hard to go back to work after this lunch-time ride north of Montpellier.

First: heading into a beautiful valley:


Looking back on it from the other side:


I was a little too busy in the middle to take pictures.

Has anyone compared the seat of the new 2012 with the old models seat?

Bought it in May 011 after some problems with my 05. Didn’t know that in 012 they would change the strom or I would have held off for the new one.

Phew, lucky for me they're either swapping out that saddle for a low seat, or else giving me another bike off the truck since I'm not picking up for a month or two!
