Flight of the Blackbird is up on Rider's website

Last summer I took a 2400 mile tour of the Pacific Northwest on a Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird. A friend I met via the ST-Owners forum was kind enough to plan some awesome rides, accompany me on 9 days of zipping around on two wheels, and share his encyclopedic knowledge of his neck of the woods. He was also kind enough to let me ride his Blackbird, which was a blast.

Anyway, the British Columbia segment of that tour led me to write this article, if you care to have a look.

Nice job Bones! That Blackbird looks like a sweet bike.

Always trust your cape.

I TOO enjoy your writing.

When I got to the pic of the T-33, I searched-out my RCAF log-book to see if I'd flown it. No such luck.
