Mono lake at about 7:00 am on the way to Tahoe. Not 600's, but sport bikes doing a fine job of doing 500+ mile days....

You might make a note as to where the bike is located... (and if you did, I didn't notice and apologize)

I did a 302 mile ride today to test out the new windshield, seat cover, and riding pants that Santa brought. In order to get ready for my 7 day trip later this spring I decided to throw all my gear on as well to see how it all handled together. I did mostly 2 lane highways with about 35 miles of interstate at the end. I love this bike more and more every day. I have put 6K miles on it and have loved every stinkin' mile. Since I rarely ride 2 up, I truly can't see getting something bigger ever. Unless my wife starts tagging along...

600cc's is more than enough to tour. Just sayin'.

Gotta love riding in December, yay Tehas.

It's a Madstad. I believe that its origanally for a Can Am, it hits the mirrors mount if you have the extended mirrors. My dad is 6 ft and he gets a still pocket of air.

I agree. We put on 2,700 miles on that trip and we never felt "under powered". The only things I wished for was a little more upright seating and a little better windshield. I could have used a set of TKC80s when we hit the dirt too Thats another thread though.

Probably gonna swap it for a maxi scoot tho, not comfortable enough.

The Honda CBF600 is an excellent bike tho!
why not trying to have a sidebox?

The rear suspension sucked even with this much load, and I didn't think
sidecases were worth my monthly paycheck. $50 backpack worked fine.

I just sold that bike yesterday!
Gettin' a maxi scoot just like I said then.

Aryapradana, That is my dad, myself, and my son lol! Three generations of riders set for a road trip. I am just shy of pulling the trigger on my wifes new to her bike. We all laugh about forming our own riders club.
