show us a picture of your 300X on the road

Thought I would start a "show us your bike on a ride" or just a story about your ride just for the 300 X people.
This part of my ride today , just out side of Blue Mounds Wisconsin.
This little road is only about 5-6 miles long and ends at a nice county road.
There is a big hill - some rock faces and a small creek that runs by it.


It is very nice when the change trees in the fall.
Many years ago when I used to ride on more sporty bikes with a group
my friends they used to get upset with me for taking them on one of "steve's driveways".

Here are a couple of pictures I took while on my first Real Ride on the X300.

I was out today on this road and this was a rough section.
I was running at low RPM in first and second and that big RED light came on..
First I thought it was an oil issue. But it turned out to be over heated...

I couldn't hear the fan running. So I picked up the pace so it would get some air flow and the temp dropped and the light went off.
So I slowed down and the light came back on. Went home and let it idle and the fan came on. On and off on and off.
So I don't understand why it came on 2 times on the trail and the temp gauge was pinned...

Riding the Cherohala up from Tellico Plains last Saturday. First time in Mountains and it was fun riding. Just drop to 3rd or 4th gear and plenty of acceleration up hill. Over 60 mph possible in 3rd.

I actually saw a few V300Xs on my ride today, apparently they are quite popular in Colorado.

I just got home with my new X 300 and it was hard to stay under 6000 rpm as I had to ride short sections of state highway on my 50 mile ride.

Congrats on your new bike. Is this you one and only or is this an addition to.
