First Time On Freeway

I’ve been a little hesitant to take my Virago 250 on the freeway because I wasn’t sure if it could go fast enough. Up to yesterday the fastest I’d gone was 55 mph. I finally tried it yesterday and it hung pretty well at around 65 mph. I got up to 70 mph but the engine was working pretty hard. It’s good to know I can actually ride it on the freeway though. I think it’s going to be a good summer.April 27, 2008 at 7:32 pm #5851uncle_bernieParticipant
Dunno where you live but a first trip onto Houston freeways on a motorcycle engenders what I imagine would be the terror + exhilaration of skydiving for the first time. My first time I remember seeing the exit, saying what the hell, twisting the throttle and reminding myself to hold on. There’s noting like hitting one of those long, sweeping, curving exits at 70mph when you’re going from one freeway to another
