You are not too far from me. I live in Ransomville NY. How do you manage time for 300-400mile days?

Thanks for the nice remarks guys :-)

CrustyAPO I work overnights 3 days a week so when the weather is nice I have 4 days with which to ride as many miles as my right hand/wrist and back can manage. I did a 300 mile day that Allegheny picture

I can relate, at my last job I only worked 14 days a month. I used to take two weeks of vacation and go riding around the country for a month. Those were the good old days. I don't get to ride like that after the job change.

I know plenty of "adventure bikes" that never get past Starbucks ... You are doing it the right way; ride because you love to ride, and props to you for doing so! An adventure is about you, the motorcycle is simply a medium for crafting the adventure.

I think I speak for everyone here when I say you will one day (if you have not already) make some guy a very lucky guy ...

Glad to have you here and be safe out there

Pistolero I bought my Yamaha because I've always loved the look of sport bikes, everyone said I was crazy to but it with the intent of doing "leisure" riding lol. But I will say its gotten more comfortable as my body gets used to the riding position. I love it and although I would love a dual sport someday soon the R won't be going anywhere. I'm hoping to do some truck days next year.

I do have a bf and I'm lucky he puts up with me lol he's into the sport bikes too, just want to get him on the dirt hopefully soon!

I have had two R-6's and I loved them both so I can't say I blame you !

Once you learn how to sit and you get used to it, it's not that bad.

Be sure to snag a few pics of that track day ... I'm sure everyone agrees when I say we would like to see you in action... on the track ...
