Finally did Sonora Pass and Ebbetts Pass as a loop. At one point I said to myself I'm tired of turning  :32:

Swapping the stainless lines on my wife's VFR. These linked brakes are kinda ridiculous.

^ That's a challenge!

I explored that option for mine, but decided that it wasn't worth the trouble.  I do like the linked brake system, though.  It worked very well for me.

Ride on,

It's quite the adventure, and it we haven't even bled them yet ;)

The linked brakes are very nice. I can understand some track guys not liking them but for the street it's a really solid system. I'm a bit disappointed my 2014 doesn't have it but I get it, it's an expense.

I actually used both 5 & 6 Gen VFRs at the track and don't even notice the linked brakes. Am I a professional level rider, no but I am familiar with sport riding braking techniques and I can say they don't appear to be an issue for me. Would my lap times change if I didn't have linked brakes? Who knows, all I know is that they work well for how ride.

Cruised Angeles Crest on 4 wheels. The patch of black ice reminded me why I didn't take the bike.

Great job looks fantastic :29:
What now. Will she put some miles on it or will it become a part of the Tanner 5th gen museum? (either are perfectly acceptable)

Little bit of both. I'm going to shoe on some new tires on my 98 and run her for 1000 miles or so here soon!

Jeez, it's been a long time since I rode and wrote about it.
