I finally got the bike out after not being on it for a while (cold weather). It hit a balmy 41F today. Short ride around the west side of the Salt Lake Valley.
I'm really loving the K-Tech Razor shock.

Good shots particularly the first one. Reminds me of when I was 40yrs younger climbing those hills.
Cheers Dekker.
It is great scenery for a ride out. Though only had the F a year and with all the lockdown nonsense riden mainly on A9 drags for work, so I need to make more of an effort to reach the good roads...2020 year of the square rear tyre 😖
I bet the roads are much busier than during the 80s...blame the NC500 🙄

Something tells me you've done that route before(y)
Yes many times, I really enjoy the back roads.
Some info for people who use the A44 Aberystwyth - Llangurig road it now has a 50mph limit, ruins all those fast sweeping bends. More incentive to use the A4120 Devils Bridge high route to avoid some of it.

Been through Elan Valley only once, got stuck behind the local tourist bus which refused to let me pass even when it stopped for oncoming traffic. So I take the B4574 over the top, much better route, lost count of how many times I've been that way.

Love it up that way. I'll be staying at Rayadar later in the year and using it as a base to explore the area a little more.

Not sure how well you know the area but would recommend a local back road of repute.
Take the A470 south from Rhayader, at Newbridge on Wye take the B4358 to Beulah that's the good bit, after that take your pick. Suggest Builth Wells to Brecon via B4520.

Took my highway ride for coffee many bikes there. My 16s was the bike most where interested in. Best looking meanest bike in the parking lot. Think when it’s all said and done. The 1st gen will be the best looking

Cheers Dekker. Thats a couple of new roads for me. Previously I've stuck on the A470 except coming out of Builth where I'll jump on the A483 up to NewTown to get a little further North and then up and around Snowdonia. Its a fntastic part of the country for biking and scenery (y)

Nowhere exotic this weekend, just around the Beauly Firth (nice open sweeping road though) to see how the new rubber feels.
Much better than the OEM rubber and hopeful of getting more than the pitiful 2600 miles that the Dunlop’s gave me 😖
Time will tell...hopefully a proper ride out at the weekend 🤞

Quick ride into town for a massage. 1 hour return trip on country highway roads. I know looks are subjective but I have always loved my F model.
Can't see myself considering the new bike unless they bring out a version with fairings.
