:luck:Took our first extended trip since going to the Darkside. Running a Kuhmo on the rear and a Stone G709 on the front. We went to Rapid City for a GWRRA Tri-State Rally (North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska) on Thursday 06/09/2011. We ran into rain several times before we got to Rapid City:rain1:. Had absolutely no problems running on the wet roads. It is about 375 miles from our home 40. We spent a couple of days riding in the Black Hills running the twisties of the Needles Highway along with Iron Mountain road and many others. The bike handled like a dream and my better half assures me that the ride is much smoother for her.:lol: 100% satisfied with the change. Logged about 1100 miles on this short trip and ready to go again.
