Being a Rounder isn't so much about long distance riding but more about not letting silly things like weather get in our way! There are a fair number of folks in Tejas who ride year-round; I bet you would fit right in.
How on earth do you deal with those San Diego winters?

That second pic was taken on an Iron Butt run. In the tank bag I had some snacks, my wallet, sunglasses, and various clothing items (rain suit, warmer gloves, and so on.) The rear pack had gatorade and tools.

I've yet to fill up the Givis with anything other than groceries! I was planning a trip north last summer but wound up being unable to go.

Cleveland semi-rounder. I tried to mount a plow on the KZ, but no go. Maybe the hillbilly650 can handle it. hoping for an easy winter.

I had an '81 KZ750. Rode the wheels off of it. Replaced the cam chain followers at 53K miles and was impressed at how smooth like glass the bores were... just a tiny hint of scoring at the tops. Only one valve went slightly out of adjustment in all that time. Aside from that just chains and ChengShin tires. It'd still be running if the idiot I sold it too hadn't crashed it. Those things are nearly indestructible.
