With the lifting of the corona virus state of emergency and local prefectural no-travel requests, it was time for the steed and I to chase the horizon once more.
This was the road that inspired the second wind and got me to thinking that a Coast to Coast Twistybutt had to be done. From here on there were mostly epic roads, views and the autumn colours would be even better. Besides, the 502 was ahead and I’d read a few months before that it’d be open for the start of October. If you get to the 502, it’s all downhill to the coast, right? Onward!
The expressway run home was a cold monotonous cruise control enabled decompress. It was the easiest and most economical leg of the ride though and traffic was surprisingly light.
This twisted fossil thoroughly enjoyed the stretch of legs and right wrist. And the MT10sp is proving a great steed for such stretches. Just wish it wouldn’t drink so much. 😉
Great photos Craig, that sure was a long ride, I wonder how many refills on the MT-10? Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Warren. The eMpTy10 typically gets somewhere in the 200-260km range to a tank. I left home with a 3/4 tank and refuelled three times on the loop. Reserve started flashing just as I got near home. I haven’t tested a pure expressway tank yet but I think it may do 280km/tank. 🤞
I did a similar twisty ride this time last year which was a little longer. 😉
Hope your autumn riding is awesome. See you on the road.
