awesome pics and pretty cool your bike runs like it does.

Yeah, it did pretty good. I mean 500 miles is not long by any stretch, especially for a stock bike but....when a bike has as many aftermarket parts, additional wiring, addition systems(fueling, data logging, added charging etc) its a pretty big deal to get one to be reliable. Other then my steering dampener leak and a boost controller that was on the fritz...all went well. I was kind of that my HP was down some. We only had it on the dyno for 3 pulls so I didn't tune on it or anything...Looks like it may be down about 20hp but on a turbo bike, your HP can vary by 20-30 at any given time for a multiple of reasons. I didn't want to push it too hard on the dyno since I had actually RODE the bike there....if I would have blown it up, I would have been screwed for my ride home...LOL

In the next couple weeks, I am gonna look into changing boost controllers, the one I want is $850....pretty steep for me, especially right now but....I need to get something that works on here.. Early b-day and x-mas presents? Think that will fly?

I am not familar with Austin at all....I was just riding around and seeing what I could find. Going there, I took 290 to Toll road 130, then to Tx79 to I35. Then take I35 to 183, then to Mopac loop. That runs into FM2222 and that is the best road in austin. Take 2222 all the way to 620. Make a left on 620 and go about a mile and you will see Commanche trail, make a right and then you're in the hills.

I am sure there are better roads and routes, thats just the ride I did.


Honestly, the riding is OK, but nothing spectacular. You hit way more, faster curves in the Forrest then you will in Austin. The FM2222 is bad but its only 2-3 miles long. The Commanche trail is bad also but its so dusty/gravel covered that you won't want to speed through it, and even so its only 3-4 miles long. Definetly ride Brookshire and Bellville, 3 sisters etc on your way out there. Its a good ride. I figured out that 300 miles in a day is PLENTY for me....
