Superslab is my back-up plan in case life interferes with the ride. If I get more than a day behind, I'll probably just marathon it on the freeways to catch up. I'm really looking forward to the...

My current windshield is way too short. At the slower speeds it doesn't really matter but at cruising speeds, its a beating , I catch myself ducking behind it. Time for a taller one.

I've heard the kickstart thing before and it doesn't make any sense to me. Could you not push start the Concours? I managed to push start my VTX on a very slight incline and it weighs like 700 lbs....

Cool! Thanks! I'll check out Mission Tejas. Its hard to find good spots that I haven't been to as we do a lot of family camping. Plus you gave me a great word to describe what I currently want to...
