new to me Springfield area route - April 30, 2009, 01:18 PM

This is a little fun route I took today with a good bit of low speed sharp turns, some low speed S turns and quick elevation changes. Me being new to sportbikes when I say low speed I am thinking like 30ish-50ish maybe faster with alot more lean and skill than I have atm.



I plan on expanding on this ride further up Henderson section next time I head out that way.

better to Show than tell.... especially online, my man.


What do you value more? Life or Image?

"I don't ride, I usually just sit around wearing a tshirt and my icon back protector and talk shit about anyone who does not have a liter bike. That's how you can pick me out of a crowd. I also wear a red tophat."
