I’ve been trying to get the bike as comfortable as possible for the many hours of riding. The Volusia ‘s passenger pegs are notorious for putting the passenger in a cramped and uncomfortable position, so I had to get a peg relocation kit. Angie and I tested them out on Saturday and they didn’t seem to help much. We might try to swap the right and left mounting brackets to move the pegs forward a couple of inches. I put a luggage rack on the bike and also ordered a driver’s backrest but haven’t received it yet.
Getting ready for the Smokies/Honda Hoot trip
I had registered for the Honda Hoot in Knoxville a couple of months ago when I used to ride the VLX. Now I’ll be showing up on my Suzuki! We’ll be leaving this Saturday for Gatlinburg to ride some of the scenic routes (see map below) in and around the Smoky Mountains before attending the first two days of the Hoot (on the 20th and 21st).
