Finally got to go on my first REAL motorcycle ride. My brother and I took run up to the top of the Sandia Crest near Albuquerque New Mexico. Fun ride. First time hitting some real corners as most of the streets on Albuquerque are straight. As you can see in the pics below, my pegs took a beating :doorag:. I will definitly have to go with the Metz 260 rear and 160 front if you all say it tracks better that way. Had a blast though, loving the bike. Enjoy my pics:











These pegs were near perfect before we left today :bigthumbsup:




No more chicken strips on the front :D

There is nice range of scenery here. Love my state. Eastern New Mexico is flat but north central New Mexico has some fun and pretty mountain roads. Here is a view of that same mountain range from my back yard. The pinkish color is because the sun is setting.

With stopping at the top for a few cigs and a Monster, total trip was about 2 1/2 hours.

WOW, your hours suck more than mine:joke:

I work sunday-thursday 5pm- 5am. But thanks to new sex offender laws, kcp71 has to get permission to leave his cell, sometimes the warden rides with him:joke:

I got wednesdays off too :-[. Guess that doesnt really help. Thats also the only day I got off with my girlfriend, so I try not plan other things anyway.

Sounds like kcp71 needs to learn how not to get caught :bigthumbsup:.

thats what I'm sayin, but he's a habitual offender so it's just a matter of time before they throw the book at him:D
