NorCal Loop Over Holiday Week

Well, I just did two 400+ mile days on the first two legs of my NorCal tour. Definitely the most concentrated riding with Trxee, since I got her. I have to say that she performed admirably. The combination of the new highway pegs, and adjustable drivers backrest paired with the MCC modded seat helped out quite a bit. Yes, my ass was sore after 7 hours on each day, but the pain was manageable. CA cagers suck. They NEVER move over. There were a couple of real nice sections on the two legs, but a majority was spent on the interstate. I a really looking forward to the third leg, which will take me down the east side of the Sierra Nevadas, past Tahoe and Mammoth. Then it is back to the heat of the desert.

I think NorCal/Bay Area traffic is much better than SoCal/ Los Angeles traffic.

Oh, I did notice that she officially exhibits the dreaded "front end wobble", at around 35 MPH. I regularly check my tire pressure, so it's not that. I have about 5500 miles on her.
