That's the squirrels spur I'm talking about... what great little road!  Also nice in that area is Highway 89 between Mt. Airy and Danbury... but if you ride around that area I'm probably not telling you anything you don't already know. 

What's Doug Spur... or where is Doug Spur?  I haven't heard of that one.

Peace.

some with the cooler were E's not F's

Noticed in your pictures you have no bar end weights. Get some! There there for that exact reason, to dampen vibration in the bars.
The stock Suzuki items are nice and heavy and do a good job.
If you go aftermarket get steel or stainless, not aluminium, need the weight.
Suzuki use an expanding rubber bung retainer for the bar end weights, make sure you buy the right type.

Pro Grip Gel grips also help dampen vibration and reduce fatigue, I like them a lot.
