    Though overcast and foggy, sunny and warm, cold and wet, it was an absolutely beautiful day for a ride. 320 miles, technical switchbacks, and beams of sunlight filtering through foresty, moss-filled magical two laners.

    And if one day wasn't enough, I found myself almoste duplicating the ride in colder weather to get my suspension dialed in the following morning, 220 miles. The first day by way of my Bandit 1250, the following day in my SV650 to get the pogos corrected:

    It was a nice day, in spite of the thick fog along skyline.
