Not to derail this thread, but I'm going to anyway and since we are speaking on the Diavel, it is an angry bike. Haha. I've been privileged to have friends that let me take their bikes for multiple rides and easily a few hundred miles at a clip. Did I mention the Diavel is an angry bike. Lol. Yes, it can be ridden at 'drive through town speeds,' but you can feel, it hates it. If the Diavel could speak to me when I'm riding it, it would call me the biggest 80s porn star p@##/ and kick me off. I've twisted the throttle on it pretty hard but 15 seconds later and 2 upshifts, I'm done. And i haven't even hit it's redline!! My eyes are buried in the back of my helmet. My arms grew 2 inches. My sphincter clenching to the seat material and my brain is telling me to slow down after seeing triple digits in that short amount of time. If anyone gets a chance to demo one, i highly recommend it. For me it could only be a 2nd bike cuz it's to high strung and I am not. Thanks for listening to my drivel even though you didn't ask for it. Enjoy the day everyone

I am glad no one I know has one. I wouldn’t have a license after two weeks. Such a sweet bike, and the perma-grin would almost be worth it.

I find I like to ride my Tenere at about 72-80 mph. I try and use the cruise when at all possible to avoid the law.

Such raw power would ruin me

Finally warmed up enough to get out for a bit, after mulching leaves and getting the snowblower fired up. Rode up to the local dealer to pick up some fork oil. Found out they will be closing indefinitely the end of the month. Second Yamaha dealer in my area to close in the last year. Very sad...

Many years ago I rode my Goldwing through there in March on my way to Texas , it was right after a big ice storm, wow it was beautiful to see but I’m still kicking myself for not stopping to take any pictures.

Rode Talihina Drive , South Arkansas 2 days ago. Weather was cloudy, pictures don’t do the fall scenery justice.

One more time I went to the Nevado de Toluca in Mexico, it is located in the central protion of the country. Very nice place! you get above 10000ft altitude and it is fun, this time I went with my buddy Everardo and he like it very much. I will share some pictures as well as some links for video in Youtuve.

In the back you can see the Nevado de Toluca with clouds covering.

20180101_003212A a.jpg Beatifull road to get there, it is winding and very pretty.
You will see next a view of the area where you can go as far in vehicle.
Hope you had a great weekend too!

Funny you say that but believe it or not, the guys I ride with hustle those HD Ulta Limited very well in the curves. It's when they're doing U-turns things get interesting and I always laugh a little in my helmet. (I'm not a mean person and want nothing to happen to those bikes.....or my friends. Haha) I find in my old age, it's 90% the rider and 10% bike. In the past, I rode with a guy on a 1997 Honda Valkyrie and he might as well been on a Kawasaki Ninja. Fast, smooth and handled that beast like it was nothing. At the end of the day not having to muscle around 300 extra pounds of motorcycle makes it even easier to do it again the next day. Enough of me babbling.
Get out and ride.

Today I rode and I'm not waiting a day to post up like I usually do. You all are going to get tired of my posts and pictures. My ride started with a simple trip for some Yamacool at the local dealer in Metuchen, NJ and then continued on from there. I didn't expect to go another 140 miles and make a run for Easton, PA and then a ride down the Deleware River to New Hope, PA and then home to South Brunswick, NJ.

This is on Rt32 South heading towards New Hope, PA. I've passed this high watermark line on the rocks for years. Today was the day I would stop and take some pictures.

The Deleware River is to the lower left. I can't imagine that much water and it's height.

I'm almost 6 foot and it's over my head!!!

Beautiful empty roads today. The Road Gods were good to me.

I didn't mean to make this 2 posts. I accidentally hit Post. Sorry everyone. Have fun and be safe out there. Thanks for looking.
