We blew past the 1,000 mile marker on the 2015 Kawasaki Versys 1000 LT today tracking a loop from the Florida Edition of Mad Maps. The specific loop was No. 11, Crystal River. Tacking on the mileage to and from the loop, we rode over 300 miles today.
I have a number of State Editions of Mad Maps mostly for southeastern states; always a good source of ride information.
One of the nice parts of this loop is the Ocala National Forest. Although the loop has you running in the forest and then back out, there a number of outstanding forest roads (marked FR) to play around on. So if you want to dilly-dally on this loop, do it in the forest. :)
We added a few entries to our Fuelly page today with 45.09 and 45.08 mpg. That's a little lower than the last two fill ups. However, these tanks were out of the running in period where we locked in a 4,000RPM max, and are probably more indicative to what the big versys is going to do.
On another note, I've been in Florida since 1986 (almost 30 years) and I've never seen a bear. Saw a Florida Panther once, but never a bear.
