Nice looking countryside, no wonder your bro got a more 'nimble' ride with roads like that! These big ol girls are pretty heavy handling compared to a full on sporter.

I am very fortunate to live in a great place for riding. Just about every two lane road around here is like this. I think the big girl handles quite well for her size. Same with my ST1300 I sold earlier this year. That bike amazed a lot of people. Feels a little heavy at parking lot speeds, but the weight just melts away once your rolling a little. Must be a Honda thing. I've never really cared much for the race replica bikes like my brothers R6. Too extreme for me.

Great bike & roads, i wonder if your brother secretly regrets letting the CBR go because i did notice you travelled almost the whole road in 1 gear from 30/40mph upto 80/90/100mph it was all done effortlessly, im not sure the R6 would or be much further ahead.

That's what is nice about a litre bike. I think I was in 4th gear pretty much the whole time.
