Cool. I live near Elk River. But grew up in Fridley.
BIR is fun but Road America is much better.

I too prefer Road America. Saw my first ever in-person race at that track. ALMS (back when the series still existed) in 2013. Good times.

UPDATE

Picked the bike up from Vegas yesterday. It was a brutal ride in 108 degree heat! I got home (to Los Angeles) with 294 miles on the bike. Today I have around 380 I think, forgot to check the odometer when I hopped off.

I'm loving the bike so far. Tomorrow I'll probably hit the 500 mark, and Sunday I'll finish up the last 100 to get to 600. Having the limiter removed (and service done) on Tuesday. Can't wait!!

Here's a pic from today on PCH. Beautiful day for a ride, 74 degrees and sunny. Also, I'll likely be installing my tail-tidy and other parts this evening. Will update with pics tonight or tomorrow if I do.
