My extended Scooter Ride, June 2001

Ever wonder what it would be like to ride a scooter for ten days? Or why anyone would want to?
   Like nothing you imagined, and because I'm certifiably Nuts.
   Actually this trip to STAR was as comfortable as any of the past eight STAR rides. The Honda Reflex 250 performed admirably, was reasonably comfortable and really surprised me in the twisties. On a smooth surface, with no whoop-t-doos it cornered as well as the PC800. Of course, the suspension and light weight wouldn't permit hard cornering on a rough surface.

   I rode with Bill and Eve on his ST1100 and Scott Wingerter with his VFR800. Taking three days each way made the average less than 400 miles per day; piece of cake for any rider. Running around 60-65mph, I don't think I held up the parade too much. Surprisingly, I didn't get any ribbing about my ride at STAR or during the entire trip; nice bunch of people!
   Actually I did get a lot of attention with the Silver Reflex, not a large percentage of sport bikers ride a machine like this, wonder why?After 2600 miles my 1.2 qt oil level was still right up there. Average fuel mileage was about 65mpg. 

   Bottom line, I thoroughly enjoyed the ride and plan on keeping 'Pogo' as my primary ride, (Although, I have no plans for long distance touring with it.)

Ride Friendly!
