As is normally my modus operandi with a new bike in the stable, 1663 got ridden again today. What began as a 50 mile loop to get lunch, organically grew by 220 miles as I was finishing the last bites at almost 4:00 PM.

Stopped at the Saint Francis Dam Disaster memorial in Santa Paula California.
 

 
 Past Ojai, California and heading north on Hwy 33.
 
 
 Climbing toward the summit on 33 and capturing a POV shot from the GoPro.
 
 
 At the junction of 166 in the Cuyama Valley.
 
 
Slowly getting her sorted out. A few minor issues have cropped up but, they're easy fixes. Passenger seat and backrest are on the shelf. I need to find a set of fender spacers so I can remove the sissy bar next.

What an awful way to spend an October Sunday afternoon: 80 degrees, light traffic on Pacific Coast Highway and a Super X thrumming away under you. It's tough but, somebody has to do it.

1663 yesterday on Glacier Point Road in Yosemite. A little dusty from the miles of road construction but, still a fine ride.



Later, on the valley floor (and more construction delays).


Taking a break at the base of El Capitan, pondering which route to take home: the short one (with 2 hours of construction delays) or the long one (ninety minutes more)? The long route won: 748 miles in a single day.
