    Day ride recommendation near Irvine

    My suggestion is follow Duc2v4 if possible a great time I can guaranty. Weather and road conditions allowing ACH with lunch in Wrightwood would be a great way to ride the day away. https://www.google.com/maps/dir/The+Habit+Burger+Grill,+990+Town+Center+Dr,+La+Cañada+Flintridge,+CA+91011/Newcomb's+Ranch/Big+Pines/34.3805085,-118.0965331/34.284685,-118.1763157/@34.3574587,-118.1277468,10.82z/data=!4m22!4m21!1m5!1m1!1s0x80c2e9fc263f6bb5:0x932b0c614b7efb05!2m2!1d-118.199844!2d34.204782!1m5!1m1!1s0x0:0xce7d44eb0dff8ced!2m2!1d-118.0019671!2d34.3298239!1m5!1m1!1s0x80c316fd4b06517f:0x194a73a6c59d776c!2m2!1d-117.68917!2d34.37889!1m0!1m0!3e0

    Winter glove recommendations

    The Helds came early fit and finish are top notch as expected. Inside there is no looseness to the finger like in other winter gloves I've had so very easy to put on I think even when inserting a wet hand. You can still flex your fingers and properly grip the bar much better all winter gloves before. Should be well into the 40's when I head out on Saturdays ride I'll have a good idea how warm they are then.

    Winter glove recommendations

    Though not cheep I expect a pair of Held cold champ gore-tex gloves to be delivered next Monday. I don't think cold hands to be a problem this winter. I'll report upon arrival. https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/held-cold-champ-gore-tex-gloves

    Not sure whats available but you might want to check out https://www.twistedroad.com/ What kind of roads to you want to explore takes at least a good 30min to an hour to get to some more interesting roads. Technical, seanic , long sweepers?
  6. Same answer as for the person who says their butt hurts, RIDE MORE. These problems go away if you put the miles in to get your body used to it.

    Soft bags and heat shield?

    I pointed a Digital Laser Infrared Thermometer at the shields with bags attached and temp was 125f so I think it works well enough. I may want to add some more insulation somehow for peace of mind.

    Soft bags and heat shield?

    How well do the exhaust heat shields work. I want to fit some Cortech Super 2 saddle bags on my 6th gen but would touch the heat shields. Do the shields stay cool enough to do this or is it a quick way to kill my brand new bags?

    Duc2v4 I just went to the Innovv site and noticed they recently released the second version of there 2 camera system for motorcycles the K2 and it looks like they fixed all the shortcomings of the previous system. I may have to make an order.
