Whidbey Island Ride - September
Recipe for a good day? Day off work + blue skies + Street Twin + open roads
Hopped on the WA State Ferry for a quick trip to Whidbey Island to let the Street Twin go through its paces. We're still in the initial break-in period, so I figured a mix of rural curvy roads, some sweet hills, and low traffic highway would make for a good ride.
Finished the ride with an increased appreciation for the bike. I'm a small rider, so it's seat height, lighter weight, and responsive handling are perfect for me. I think I will add a windscreen, though. 70mph+ on the open rode threatened to push me to the backseat! Any suggestions?
