As the years went by, the big sport bikes got smaller and more race ready with none of the features that made the ZX-11 as a great two-up sport touring bike – long wheelbase, large fuel tank, long soft seat, cargo hooks, and lots of horsepower. The next thing I knew, the bike was over 20 years old and the kids were out of the house. Now empty-nesters, my wife and I enjoy traveling together. We found many great roads in Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania. One of the best tours was the Circle Tour of Lake Superior.
