3K miles, 1 week and the Shark
Just as the title says.
3K miles of both Highway and some of the most fantastic twisties and sweeper's the State's of TN, NC and VA has to offer in just 1 week.
I hit every type of weather from COLD, to WARMTH to Serious Headwinds and Crosswinds, Wet roads, Fog and all I can say is WOW.
850 miles strait from CT to TN the Glide was on the top of her game. 80mph at times with not even a hicup. Throttle response was fantastic, 6 gear was flawless and at 75mph and 2800RPM's she just purred.
1100 Miles of fantastic twisties on the Dragon, Snake, Devils Triagle, Devils Whip, Sweepers of the BRP, Cherohalla, Rt 441 through Cherokee NC, Rt 321. The Glide road like a 900lb sport bike (sorry stole that from a forum members post). Heck I even have a few burrs to file off the floorboards. She pulled the inclines, and rolled into the twists with ease, never felt like I muscled her or questioned her ability to lean.
600 Miles from VA to CT with some of the hardest headwinds and crosswinds to deal with through PA. The Glide while was rock steady in strong headwinds and while "moved" with the crosswinds held it's own like no other Harley I have ever owned.
What a vacation! Now to consider my next trip.
Ride for the future as it may be closer then you think.
