Finally went for a ride yesterday.

With work and life in general, my riding tims has been slim. I finally got out yesterday and ran some errands, and rode about 60 miles for jusr pleasure. This is the Lehigh Gap as a backdrop. You're looking at the east side of the gap, which also has part of the Appalachian trail that runs on the top of the ridge.







Here's the panoramic view. This is looking north from Washington Twp., PA, North, into the Lehigh Gap, which comes out in Lehighton, and eventually Jim Thorpe, PA, where the movie "Molly Maguires" filmed and was written about.

Yesterday was a great for a ride. I was only able to ride to work and home, but it was great.
Hope you enjoyed the ride. Weather is chaging now.

Nice Pics, Dave.
I like that first one with the hills - Very cool.

I did... The bike also had blackwalls a month ago. I also just added the Samson pipes I got from serviceguy85.

The fairing flares are new.

The second antenna is new.

The tank bra is new and my winter soft lowers are on.

Good to know that the Guru also rides.

I think those are the first pictures I have seen of your bike. I absolutely love the color.

Bike looks good Dave . Nice to get out once in a while and your scenery is nothing to sneeze at .

Question about your Samsons. Any complaints from passanger regarding heat from the left pipe? It's location is right about where the left pipe is on my Heritage with the V&H True Duals. My mom what's me to take her for a ride and I'm worried she may burn her ankle on that pipe.

Not really. Most of the heat is on my (bottom) left leg. The pipes are OEM. The slip-ons are Samson.

There's heat shields on them.......
