Made the mistake of taking a ride to the Sacramento area on Thursday. My neighbor had to take his Multi-Strada in for a Brembo recall of all things. Went to A&S Cycles. One of the guys who works there came over to check out my RC. He said one of the other guys who works in the back (Mechanic?) also has an RC51. Maybe Jon Dog or someone else, knows who I am talking about. Anyway, the ride home at 5pm, was no fun, til we hit highway 50. God! Reminded me of why I moved away from L.A. 15 years ago! Bike was running between 215 and 220 in traffic. I need to get Wibbly's fan switch installed like Pronto! Freakin' homeless people with mounds of clothes on every intersection it seemed like. I feel for street people, but alot of them are sent here to Ca. on one way bus tickets, when they get out of jail in other states. First time I really felt the warm knee/thigh syndrome. Like Madbuyer said, Gotta keep it up to speed. Heading to Wentworth Springs tomorrow with a couple buddies for a quick ride, and lunch in Georgetown. Welcome to the Forum Karl!

On my agenda this year! I heard Wentworth/Icehouse was one of the best routes in CA.....

Back on topic, yes the fans are on my list, now that I have the brackets and switch. Almost a must in summer.

Last year I was around 210-220 on most rides....
