Thanks for posting that.
What!?! A 900 mile ride and no complaints about the seat!?!
I recently did most of that ride (the part from So. Cal. up to San Fran. that is).
"Big Sur is also a popular tourist destination too, which means the road can bog down. We’d scored less congestion on the weekday, and miraculously Big Sur was less cluttered with the RV rentals that typically litter the PCH."
OMG that's exactly what I experienced...I've never seen so many RV rentals and sightseeing tourists operating motor vehicles
in my life! And I was there on a Tuesday!
"Plus the Versys Twin had plenty of snap to dispatch slow pokes as opportunity presented."
Very true. But after you "dispatch" one group of 3, 4, 5...10 cars/RV's and then run into another "group" within a mile or two, it gets tiring--at least it did for me, especially considering how cool the road was. Oh well, I still enjoyed the scenery and the ride as best I could.
Funny, I "hammered it" back home on the I 5 too. (I went to school in No. Cal., so I an VERY familiar with that Interstate), except I was "getting along" more in the 80 to 90 mph range and making time!
It was nighttime, so I didn't have to deal with the never changing, mind numbing farmland that that slab goes through. Plus, I cut over on the 138 in Gorman and took it through Palmdale and came home from "the backside" for a least a little variety.
Anyway, I appreciated reading that article. That guy's take on the V seemed very accurate to me. I can't wait to see what they do with it from here on out! And, I can't wait to try some of those "side" roads and highways he mentioned next time!
