First longish ride on the S1000

Went out with a friend to the Olympic National park - Hurricane Ridge this weekend (on Saturday). Round trip was 200 miles. Really enjoyed the few twisties while going up and coming down the mountain. This was my first ride on the S1000. Had a very nice time. For anyone interested, here is more info: https://www.nps.gov/olym/planyourvis...cane-ridge.htm

We are going to do a few more trips this season... Cant wait.

So with yesterday's trip, the odometer crossed 3000 miles. :-) Will post a few pics once I download them off my phone.

Which bags are you running? They don't look bad at all.

So the cop caught us both because we were driving on the shoulder. We were of the opinion that the Bill was passed that allows motorcycles on the shoulder if the traffic is slow (less than than 10 mph) in the state of WA. The cop said its not passed. But we came back home and looks like it has passed. So now we need to figure out what to do next...

Yeah I really like the bags. I am getting tired of wearing backpacks every single day... Its the SW-MOTECH Blaze Saddlebag System that I got from revzilla a couple of weeks back. Here is the link to it: https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...000f-2016-2018
