Last week end the girlfriend and I went for a little ride; about 4 hours; just out burning gas on the secondary roads in Southwest MO. On this ride, I didn't ride my usual speeds of 70-75mph. Instead, I kept it at 55-60mph. At first, we both felt like we were moving at a walking pace, but after we got used to it, it was quite enjoyable. I rarely had to adjust the throttle, as most curves are doable at 60mph in my area. I was able to use the Throttlemeister quite effectively! I wasn't constantly searching the horizon for cops. We rarely encountered slower traffic, and were not passed by anyone. I was much more relaxed, and enjoyed the scenery. When we got home, I was not tired, but felt quite refreshed. And another plus, I was showing 250 miles on the trip odometer (from some previous riding too) and still showed two bars of fuel left. In the past, I would be bone dry (or at least nervously low on fuel) at 235 miles.
I may give this slower riding a chance!
