6h ride on the back tracks

Well 6 hours riding from Dundathu through to Wolooga, Gimpy, Cedar Pocket, up & down Mt Pamona then home. non stop (except for fuel stops) and it faired even better than I expected. I really put it through its paces, spirited riding the whole way no cramping no excessive heat since I added a firewall to the undercarriage of the seat (one of the best things you can do to stay comfy on a long ride). The roads were fair to ruff with some loose gravel, I did the whole ride in touring mode just to keep true to my test results. Will be posting a GoPro video as soon as I can make it short enough. What a great bike for this sort of riding. I'm happy

I used a 12mm sound deadening /heat shield cotton based product used in automotive trimming. Works very well but there are better products out there that are thinner. The ideal thickness 6mm ( so that the seat clips back easily) I will probably re do mine when I get some foiled backed stuff. I will take a photo when I am at my workshop.
