Took her to Tampa
Few weeks ago I went to Tampa to visit family. Put over 2300 miles on the 950T throughout the trip. Averaged 80mph most of the way, bike did great, and I learned some things. It'll cruise at 80, but 85-90 it'll go from cruise to full throttle rpms. Fastest I've ever had it was 105, even downhill. This trip I made 110mph once, don't know why, different fuel? Downhill? Wind? All three? I dunno.
So I rode from Hot Springs, AR to Pensacola Beach FL in one day, stayed the night, and then headed to Tampa the next day. On the way home I rode past Pensacola, past Mobile, AL into a little town called Lucedale MS. Stayed the night and headed home. The ride there was fair weather in the 60s, but on the return trip it was low to mid 50s with a 32 degree morning. I wasn't a happy camper but I made it.
Wouldn't hesitate taking my Vstar anywhere. Batwing woulda been nice.
