Man. That was cool as shite!

93 MPH in 3rd and 118 MPH in 4th and the bike is just beautifully humming along like it's all in a day's work.

Dude can ride! And it goes to show my feelings about this bike - it can do it *all* well!

Dạmn. Thanks for sharing that. Amazing.

Gary

I Always thought people generally underestimate the AT's road worthiness, I have an app that records the acceleration and lean angles tracking your rides
and doing the same roads this winter with my AT and my Yamaha Fazer8, well although i tend to see more acceleration with the Yamaha in 3rd gear, on
both I reached 28° lean angles without even trying hard.
Will see when it stops raining and stays warm the angles I can reach, but last summer my riding buddies told me sometimes, they were affraid because I
leaned a lot .

Those car drivers must be gutted seeing this large adventure bike passing them so swiftly !

Absolutely amazing to see the skill. I have to admit there were a few corners where, when watching, I puckered up knowing the bike and how much lean and speed was needed.
