Local Airhead Marshall Dave Cushing arranged a summer barbecue gathering at his home. It was a perfect distance and excuse to ride the R50/2. On a perfect summer afternoon, the bike started first kick and once warmed up, we breezed along a winding river road. The sweeping curves are great fun as you can ride the R50 close to its limit. The event at Dave’s was a great affair and was covered in the main blog. It was the only /2 at the event, and many people were curious about the pillion seat. Good conversation, great people, and a wealth of knowledge. It is always impressive how many engineers gravitate toward the Airheads club where the slogan is “Simple By Choice. All of this followed by a great ride back home on a great machine.
