    I havenít ridden my NC very many times this year... not complaining, itís just how the schedule has been this summer.
    On Saturday, I did a first for me by riding the ebike I bought last year in an organized 60 mile ride. Great route on nearby country roads. No traffic, few center lines, varying terrain, and I was keeping up with a bunch of genuine bicycle riders. (My battery empowered me to keep an average of 17 mph throughout.) All along the ride I kept thinking it was a great route that my wife could enjoy riding with her scooter, a 50cc Buddy... quite cute.) (And, by the way... when she bought her scooter in 2012 she encouraged me to also get one... what a great opening for me to buy three 2013 Honda motorcycles... a CRF 250l and two NCís, a manual and then a dual clutch... worked out great... and my son uses the manual.)
    All this to say that my wife rode over 70 miles with me today in bright sunshine and including the full 60 mile bike route. The ride organizers painted little arrows onto the pavement allowing her to lead the way and I ďprotectivelyĒ followed on my NC.
    Great ride... at about 28-30 mph... two and a half hours or so.

    Did some more riding in southern Indiana...even found a road I had never been on...it turned to gravel before I knew it and said what the heck...i'll ride it and see where it goes:


    Went to look at the covered bridge in Medora Indiana...stopped at a local grocery store in Medora and was informed the road (hwy 235) on the other side of the bridge had been closed for about 8 months:


    Riding thru the little town of Medora:

    Nice white river road west of Medora:


    Almost home...part of my block-live out in the country and my block is 6 miles:

    Added wider bars with a 3 inch rise, replaced the GSXR shock with an Aprilla one.

    Looking good Rice, How'd the shock swap go? I am buying an Aprilla rear shock from another member here who never used it. I'll have to get a hold of them for sure as he believes it was set for 180-190lb rider and i tip the scales at 230lb. I haven't watched and vids yet on the rear shock installation but figured it was not that difficult. :{)

    Shock install was pretty simple.
    Remove tire, move rear brake master cylinder and under tail cover out of the way, remove shock bolts and lower linkage bolt.

Debating on removing the grab handles and rear rack for oem luggage, and putting the oem standard grab handles back on in case I crash, less good parts to scratch up. But swapping those grab handles out was an annoying task, so I will probably leave them on.
