I just returned to Burien this morning from the MT1000 & 2,569 miles on the F650. The MT1000 was an absolute blast especially riding the Gravelly Range south of Ennis. That section should be on EVERY motorcyclists' bucket list. It's simply the prettiest 60 miles of riding I've ever done. We camped at 8k feet on that segment Just wait for the pictures. They won't do it justice. There were 5 nights of hammock camping and one night of tent camping (no object to hang from). The buffeting while riding at times got to be very challenging and tiring. On top of it all I lost 2 more pounds and ate quite well.
