    I think we got off just in time. We were about where the 91 sign is in the middle.

    Todays Ride

    Hooked up with Beer and another buddy today and burned it up for a while. Had a great time.

    Weather was great and Beer managed to click off a couple of 68-69ish mph runs. Not bad for literally 5 minutes experience on a GPR.
    70+MPH would have been easily obtainable had we been in GPS Alley with less fuel and a little better water. These were just 15-20 second blasts out in the channel with at least a half tank of fuel left. Not much of a story really, other than the fact that Beer has never had the chance to run anything more powerful than his SL 750. Again, no biggie, but I bet he was at least a tiny little bit in awe of the pull of an engine that is almost twice the size of his. I hope he enjoyed the ride, cuz that's what it's all about!!! Final best run on the GPR was me at 69.2mph @ 7360rpm. Next time, GPS Alley.

    Enough about the GPR... lets talk SL 750. Beers boat ran wicked strong all day right through 2 full tanks of fuel. Parked her back on the trailer as sweet as when he unloaded her. He's got it running strong and he was really tearing it up.... complete 360*s and all!!! I think he might have been low to mid 50'smph or so. He can chime in on that one.

    The water was fantastic, ranging from small wind-blown ripple to some bigger boat wakes, the perfect combo really. Beers gonna plot our couse, but I'm guessing we covered 50 miles or so.

    I managed to snap some pics and vids. The pics aren't great cuz I take my beater camera on the water, and the vids.... well.... they look only OK on the puter, and even worse once YouTube compresses them.

    Beer started the day by going into the drink on the very first boat wake we hit. I only get the end of it, him swimming, not the actual dismount. Again, audio and visual quality are lacking to say the least, but it was my first time with this paticular means of video taping so it's going to be a learning curve.

    I clicked off a 54mph than did some plug chops and it was just a tad lead so I fattened it up 1/4 turn. Than all I could get was 52-53. A little loading up at idle. Better rich than lean. I am going in 1/8 and call it a day. Nice ride today with the Crazy man and the guy on the MSX.. Let me tell you that GP1300R pulls HARD!!! form say 20-30mph thru 60mph. It was a real pleasure to ride the GP1300R thanks Crazy....And yes the SL likes piss!!!!!

    That's awesome. Look how it shows us cutting the corner of the South side of Haddam Island.... and where we just sat and drifted towards shore before hauling out of there and heading back.

    Oh, saw an Ultra 250 X. Man that red paint just GLOWS in the sun.
