I'm not knocking your MTB hobby, I myself love it but have you thought of moving up into the dirtbike scene? Lots of fun to be had with those.

From yesterday's 320+ mile ride.

The bridge section at the end gives a nice view, but honestly, how much is 320 miles of straight road doing for you?

Straight as opposed to curves or straight as opposed to flat?

That not considered. What does riding do for anyone?

Riding is therapeutic for me...

Pretty sure he means as opposed to having curves. Whatever floats your boat I agree but for me that would be a very boring ride.

Since Florida is widely known as predominantly flat, it would be safe to assume there aren't many elevation changes in my rides. But I guess because there are no curves in the videos I've posted, there are no curves and because there are no curves the quality of my rides are somehow less? Okay... Going with this assumption I have to ask. Considering most roads are designed to get you as directly as possible from point A to point B. How many curves do you need in one session to have a "quality" ride?

Here I thought the blue skies, palm trees, sandy beaches, beautiful weather and the fact I'm riding in a place where the whole world wants to vacation would add up to some pretty cool rides.

For me personally, having some nice bends in roads which tickle the lean angle receptors in my brain is always a plus on a ride. But I guess thats why I ride a sportsbike and you ride a cruiser.

I like curves and there are what I would imagine is a normal amount of curves in our roads. But I wouldn't say curves make or break a ride. They're just short fun breaks from the norm.

Yeah, curves are cool and everything, but not necessary. There are plenty around here if I choose to go that route, which I did today. Also, some days I feel like getting a little speed and others I just want to lean back and cruise.

I installed two new switches and crash bar running lights. One switch is for the new lights and the other is for the accent LEDs.
