The next day we rode on the street (on the factory-fitted RS10 road sport tires), cruising a 120-mile loop out of Austin with a little taste of Hill Country. Which, on our route, was pretty much all 300-mph sweepers. Fine riding, beautiful scenery and very much a sample of daily ride use. How is the bike? Docile and snuggly as a gorilla in a lamb suit. It was completely civilized and offered a more streetable riding position than most of its competitors. I didn’t notice the seat once, and, as a 6-foot-2 gorilla in a cow suit, I found reach to the bars and footpeg height just fine for street riding. I would have been happy to ride a lot farther, but we stopped at Salt Lick Barbecue because a man’s got to eat some of the best smoked meats on earth when he gets the chance. Luckily, I’d left out my back protector, so there was plenty of room for brisket, ribs, beans, slaw and pickles. So in addition to doing more pushups, I’ll also be doing some situps.
