Big Bear California
Good eye and prospective on your Strada, I see you had some good cloud cover to make a nice Photo.
i now have to live vicariously thru all of your pictures for the next 6 months.
Mendocino Pass yesterday shortly after sunrise snow pack.........frozen too!
A quick escape between bands of rain. About 50mi, mostly no rain, but wet and leaves everywhere. This is rainy season riding in Oregon at it's best, you just go for it and sometimes it's good, sometimes it's not. Today it was great, two rainbows, actual sunshine for the first time in a few days, three deer, and a bunch of trick or treating kids.
We will have to hook up next summer for a rip. Maybe we can have a 650 gathering ha ha ha
Tried out the Nuda and the Strada today for short runs. Not as frisky as my 630 and MUCH heavier feeling. In the dealer´s showroom they looked very BMW. Anyone with a 610 or a 630 would be well advised to hold on to (and take good care of) what they´ve got as there´s no more coming in that direction. Wish they´d make a good, light and durable 450cc (or thereabouts) that could be powered up by the customer after market.
How dare you bring this negative tr650 talk to my happy tr650 ( PHOTO ) page
10 lashings for you....
Organ donor, you're right. The 630 was designed to be a dirt bike. The Terra is designed to be more of an adventure bike. Husky really emphasized that this wasn't a Dual Sport bike, it's a Dual Purpose bike. Much more in the adventure class, while still making the adventure class fun again. I took one up Ortega Highway out here in So Cal and it handled the twisties very well. Although I think that I could have taken it through the desert woops, I don't think I would have had very much fun (that's what my TE is for). So I guess what I'm getting at is, the 630 and the 650 were designed to be different.
Sorry, didn't mean to hijack....now back to roscotom's regularly scheduled program.
>m truly ashamed ...
Now I'm taking you two off my Xmas list... Unless you post some pics of somethin.
