May sound real cheesy... well it does... but it's also a darn good bucket list thing. I think it's every riders dream to hit as many different places as they possibly can. For me, once I go to one place, I don't want to go there again, I want something new all the time.

I once had a great neighbor that was single and loved to cook fancy meals then have me over to enjoy them with her. Thing was, no matter how good they were, she never made the same recipe twice.
A definite two-edged sword as I loved the pork roast and yet was happy to see the peanut butter seasoned pasta go. LOL

Some things you should try at least once in your life; capture that cheesy front wheel in ocean picture, peanut butter seasoned pasta, riding a variety of bikes and taking trips to different locations.

I wouldn't have thought of going for something else like the scr950 if I didn't try riding on sport bikes first and realized they're not for me.

I had yesterday off & rode the SCR roughly 190 miles of back roads to see my Dad.
As luck would have it, he picked yesterday to get out himself and I missed him. =(
The ride sure was fun, though. Not poking along. Not speeding.
I even went by a few places used to film The Walking Dead, like the old AT&T dishes outside of the actual Woodbury, Ga. (see photo from a different ride.)
I got home and figured up my fuel mileage: 59.8mpg.
THIS kind of day is why I bought this bike!

Just missed him? Guess you'll have to ride back on another nice day and visit him again. :wink2:

190 miles is a pretty long ride, can't imagine my butt lasting that long on a sportbike but the scr950 would make it bearable.

With interesting destinations like that you might want to start vlogging, i'm sure a lot of people would want to see it that way, and on the side you can make some coin ;)

Some people I know just use their phone, a powerbank and have a cloud they upload video to. Great way to go about it if you want to be a minimalist since as we all know the less we carry when out on the road the better off we are. I would ride like a squid if I could but squid days are behind me :D

I knew I’d forget one, and it was an interesting one too!

2006 Harley Davidson XL883L Sportster (with private plate: S666 LOW)

Most fun I ever had at low speed lol. Scraped up the OEM exhaust by cranking it over too far on the UK twisties, and upgraded to Vance & Hines Sideshots - which were deafening!

Thinking about a Road Glide or Fat Boy in the distant future, or maybe a Triumph Scrambler 1200. So many fun bikes to try...

Probably missing a few I am near 70. Used to race off road and motocross.

Still have the ones with Asterisk.
Picked up the SCR950 in August but due to virus couldn't ride as much as I like. rides well for my 6ft 6 height.
Want to see how it does on a trip Took Moto-Guzzi to Key West in 2019, will take SCR to Nova Scotia hopefully this summer. Need to replace tire soon those original tires don't last only got about 6000 miles on it.
