    I never tried the PR5's. I've been running the Pr4's for the last four tire changes. I'm consistently getting 12,000 miles out of them. However they start getting wonky at around 8-9,000 miles. I ride a lot of two lane with a little bit of slab mixed in...
    I'm about 250 miles away from 16,000 miles for the year. Not nearly as much as the Jedzster, but not to bad for not going anywhere. Well, Indiana, Maine, Michigan and Tennessee. I didn't even cross the Mississippi River this year. The days are getting shorter, it's getting colder, I'm pretty much done riding for the year... Who knows what 2021 will bring? 😉

    New bike day meant that I had to ride whether I wanted to or not!

    Hmm, a full review after only putting 10kms on it so far? Well, it's more comfortable than the original Katana!

    More to follow.

    Left out early Saturday morning to return Joe's bike and recover mine from his garage. Weather ended up being nice, so we got out late morning and rode about 120 miles around the Cherokee and Nantahala National Forests. Joe wanted to try out a new route off the Cherohala Skyway. It was a nice route, but turned into a dirt/gravel road. We rode it anyway because we're rugged adventures.

    Here we are taking a break right after the road stopped being paved, trying to decide to turn back or not. We decided to bravely move forward.



    The road ran right along the North River



    Most of the road looked like this, so it was pretty easy going. Some of it was a little sketchier, but it was fine, and fun, and we didn't get stuck behind a parade of Mini Coopers like we did on the Skyway.



    We stopped at the Deal Gap resort for a break before heading back to Joe's. Of course Killboy caught us on the way back. At least this time we were both on motorbikes instead of in Joe's truck.



    The weather ended up being great with just a little rain, the colors in the mountains were nice, and it really was a great day riding with a good friend. Thanks Joe!

    Greg, good to see you got El Tigre sorted out and you and Joe got out for a nice scenic ride.

    It took me a few minutes to find North River Road on a map; haven't been down that one. Nice!



    Around here, the deer activity is ramping up -- LOTS more dead deer along the road in the last week or so -- so I'm sticking to the city for the next several weeks.

    On November 9, 2013, I hit a seven point buck on my KLR650 south of Indy and collected my third broken left femur and second broken right wrist. I've never paid much attention to hunting and had no idea that weekend was the very height of the rut around here. Pretty much the single most dangerous day to ride.

    Deer are always a danger, of course, but late October through November is much more dangerous; they're moving around a lot more trying to breed and fatten up, and paying even less attention than usual, if that's even possible for such an incredibly brainless creature. So in late fall, I can't really even enjoy myself anyway. There's a very unpleasant recording looping through my head that gets very loud and intense on days that smell of late autumn's mostly fallen leaves, and especially on crisp cloudless mornings when the sky is that intense blue unique to late fall.

    Eat more venison.




    I've never bothered to track my yearly mileage, but the travel restrictions this spring and summer definitely put a crimp in things. We eventually figured out how to ride in a socially distant and responsible manner and did our best to catch up.
