Big Blue Ridge Parkway Run Yesterday (7/3/2008)
529 mile run (carving) the Blue Ridge Parkway both directions between Sparta, NC and Cherokee, NC.
Versys was absolutely brilliant! Nimble, Great low end torque out of the curves, exhilerating high end wind out on many an occasion, and relatively comfortable for the full 12 hours!
Had several queries and compliments on the Versys along the way!
Lots of cruisers out there ambling loudly along, and the Versys, like a whisper, blew by a good many of them (in good fun that is - nothing against cruisers per se).
I also played a bit of cat and mouse with a gent. on a rocket bike of some type (couldn't tell). I see William T's (and others') point about the ability of the V to outpace sportbikes in the twisties due to the upright rider position. I easily outpaced this gent., and I am certainly no expert.
My V now has about 4,500. miles and the fun just keeps escalating!
