One thousand, four hundred, ninety-nine point nine miles. That's the distance from Skamania Lodge in Stevenson, Washington, to my driveway in Southern California. My carefully mapped route was estimated at 1,500 miles, and I wanted that long of a stretch to put Yamaha's updated sport-tourer, the 2019 Tracer 900 GT, to the test. So as I stared at the the newly fitted Thin Film Transistor (TFT) display, I cursed the tripmeter and rounding errors. Really? One-tenth. Fate would deny me an all-too-perfect 1,500-mile ride by one stinking 10th of a mile? I considered going around the block—but if I clicked that magic number, I'd possibly keep going. It was too tempting, that proud turn away from comfort and toward the horizon. Not for a 10th of a mile, but that I might not return to the driveway for another 499.9 miles. For the Tracer, that's but a song.
