...try to whack your new threads into the appropriate boards ....
If you cant seem to find a board that looks like it suits your topic , then whack it in "Off Topic"
That's a lot of whacking, Steve.

Hope you had fun, 03CBR6.
Riding.... not whacking. LOL...

Congrats on a successful longer ride. As you ride more & more, you'll gain confidence. You'll get more comfortable in the saddle (not complacent).

Be safe out there.

Red face Good luck

I took my first long drive when I first got my bike which was an hour from Reading, PA to Minersville, PA then yesterday I took my second from Minersville, PA to Philadelphia, PA and back with a total of 4 hours, The second part was in the pouring rain lol. It takes a lot out of you man. I got back home and went right to bed lol. Ride safe and keep your cool.
