We weren't planning on going through San Jose or we would have given you a heads up, Joker. It would be a cool day ride for sure if you lived in the area. Make sure you ride in your lane and don't cut corners, the locals use it as a race track for cars also! We saw a bunch of bitchen sport sedans coming through,FAST! The corners are sharp, alot of peg grinding for sure, and maybe some other parts too! Just ask Urban! If you ride this road you need to watch out for CATTLE GAURDS!!!!! most of them are fine, but there are a few that will bottom you out, and even worse there are a couple in the APEX of corners!
Stryker Shane - It's my opinion that the L&M seat breaks in a little with milelage. We were stopping between 85 - 100ish miles to top off so I got a little break in between, but we rode all day! That 650 is alot of twisties, we tried to take as many backroads as possible.
As far as the bag goes it's a T-Bags, Universal Expandable, it's a great bag would recomend it for sure! You just need to have something sturdy to strap it to. It's designed to slide over a sissybar, and sit on a luggage rack,or seat.
