My R is the only Harley in our group. It was a mix of Aprilia RSV, Ducati 1098 and GXR600 Sportbikes, Aprilia Futura and my R tourers, Beemer 1200 GS and Kawasaki one lunger KLR off road bikes dashing from Fairfield county Connecticut to Stowe, Vermont on Friday. Saturday into Canada with lunch in Knowlton by a Lakeside resort and return to Stowe via Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. Sunday was back down through WoodStock, lunch in Wilmington at the intersection of routes 100 and 9 where there was a very nice custom and clean R, mine wasn't so clean.

Like the KLR I was keeping the revs on my R in the 6 to 8 range for full throttle control in the twisties. It leans and climbs up route 17 in Vermont so well that the Ducati 1098 backed off and let me lead. I have never gotten my knee down, but if there is a bike I am going to do it with its this one, but on a track. The seat wasn't that much of a problem because I end up moving around a lot and stand up on the pegs motocross style for relaxation. We got back Sunday evening with really big grins.

Sounds like an excellent ride. I've never riden that part of the country but would sure like to one day. Good to hear the R held its own in some pretty fast company.:thumb:

Stowe is very nice. I will be up there the last weekend in September.

How nice it must be to have elevation changes and roads that bend. Jealous.
