    That's one of our favorite places we used to stop at when we lived in Illinois, I see they finally got old Chief Blackhawk finished, quite a history on him if you didn't know about it, this was taken 3 years ago from Rt. 2 on the other side of the Rock River.

    Unfortunately Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR works very bad in deep sand. Later tried them without any luggage and small amount of pressure (~50% of recommended) and still can't ride. Rear wheel just dig into the sand.

    Getting "lost" on the North Island 1000 this weekend.
    The bike ran flawlessly - I often feel I'm not skilled enough nor worthy to be riding such a capable bike, and it just humours me. A good relationship.

    I had plans to come up from the Portland area to do that ride with one of my friends (who lives on the island). No getting through the border this season though. I'm going to try again for next year now. I had envisioned the route all gravel or something, but from your picture, obviously that's not the case?

    It's all gravel if you don't take a wrong turn and end up on a small spur line.....it's a great route with great roads. You'll have a blast.

    I think I'll have to include this bit in my up the coast and part way across BC ride next year or the next. I think it will end up waiting for 2022 since we're hoping to go fishing with dad next summer in Colorado.

    Don’t like the looks of the top case on bike but the wife likes the backrest and it’s actually pretty useful for securing stuff while away from the bike.
