Good Ride on Saturday

Took the 9r out with my buddy and his 929. Put on a hundred miles or so and rediscovered some nice roads out by Lake Geneva. Got the 9r up to 130 something. I was in 5th gear about 9300 rpm or so. She pulls hard all the way. WOO HOO! Even my bud on the 929 was a bit suprized. The big downer was having a cop follow us down one of the best roads. We had to slow way down and finally pulled over to let him by. Then he slowed down to 25 mph. Ruined that whole section.

Sounds like a good ride, despite the escort. What roads were you on?

By the way, 9300 in 5th computes to 137 mph.


If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

137 is hauling! Sounds like a good time, glad you found the cop after the top speed run.
