Finally took my first recreational ride, after 4,000+ miles of commuting! My ride took my on 129N out of Gainesville, GA up to Wolf Pen Gap (180), to Hwy 60, to Hwy 19, and back to 129. Pretty challenging ride for my first time on twisty mountain roads, but I rode at my own pace and never felt like I had exceeded my limits. The Rebel performed perefectly, no issues whatsoever. By the time I arrived back home, I had covered 150 miles over 4 hours. I only got off the bike twice from the time I left until I was parked back in the garage, once at the Wolf Pen Gap summit, and once on an overlook on 60 to take a couple of pictures. 129 had quite a bit of bike and cage traffic, but I rode the Wolf all by myself. No one in sight in front or behind me, though there was some light traffic coming the opposite direction. Definitely the most fun I have had on the bike since I bought it last November! As a side note, I did the whole ride on a single tank of gas, and never had to switch over to reserve!
