Had a great time, even though I've been a little sick the last 4 days and still not quite over it. But the weather here is beautiful, sunny and warm, just a little high clouds and wind. Almost all of the snow in the mountains has melted off, the trees and grasses were bright green, the roads clear and dry, and the lakes and creeks sparkling. A perfect day for a ride.
The VS was beautiful, tracking lightly and tightly through some of my favorite twisty roads. Here we are on Mesa Grande Rd, rising steeply up from the valley with some sweet turns:
Doctor Doom was my co-pilot, keeping the "man" at bay. No one dares chase Doom!
Went up to Palomar Mountain (did get passed by a group of sport bike riders, some of the regular ricky racers). But I had the road to myself after they disappeared in the distance, and the VS was so sweet, just inspiring confidence on every turn as he just tracked tighter and smoother on every turn. Sweet!
Finished the day with Julian Apple Pie ala mode:
Took the crowded way home, but no worries. Even saw another green Versys turning left off of Hwy 67 onto Poway road. Anyone here claim it? I waved and gave a big thumbs up when I saw it was another VS.
Home safe, with 157 miles on the clock for the day. Head congested a bit but it was a good break from hanging around the house with a box of tissues.
