I amaze myself

Gentlemen, I know ive probably over done these posts, sometimes a ride is so good,that I need to put it in writing.After this, I think Ive posted up about everything there is to tell about my escapades on two and four wheels.Due to the insane humidity along with very hot temperatures, I have not been in the canyons for about two weeks. Today, I couldnt wait any longer. The weather outside did taper off today for a bit, but it is going to go right back to the heat and humidity tomarrow.I took the 1000R up and over the infamous PV coastline this afternoon..Things didnt really heat up until I got to Portugeese Bend. I had a bunch of cars I had to pass,and frankly, I didnt think I was going to get a good drive over the two blind loop de doo hills.I made all the correct passes at the absolute right time,and had a 2nd gear full throttle drive over the first hill.,launching the front end up to do a nice medium size wheelie over the crest of the hill.At this point I was still in 2nd gear, when I twisted the throttle all the way open, and had about a 70 MPH burst heading up over the big blind almost straight up loop de do hill. I was going so fast.that not only did the back tire come off the ground about a foot.,but I floated the sickest 75 degree tire up in the air wheelie, that I was able to shift to 3rd gear in the air as I continued to wheeile the bike for what seemed like forever, Holy shit, you had to see it, just like the Isle of Man.!!,,, I laughed and screamed inside my helmit so loud., like a little kid on Christmas morning,that I got so dizzy.,I almost passed out after the front end touched down .This is the stuff that I live and ride for , and for me.,there really isnt anything else .

Salve,
