66 Trip Planner

This is a pretty detailed breakdown of the route in app form. A friend of mine does it as part of a "Best Road Trip Ever" site she designed.

Lots of interesting, oddball stuff.

Best,

2. Get some comfortable boots and a jacket and gloves that will help you avoid those scabs that take weeks to heal. Don't forget a helmet.

Memorabilia again

KOm4 - I have a memory very similar to yours - so far, at any rate. One duffle bag strapped on the back. Nothing else. No "what-if" precautions, so to speak. My rain gear was a two-piece vinyl suit...

DUDE!!! You never mentioned the word 'clean.' You asked if I rode it or just waxed it? Kinda smart-assed and cocky, I was thinking. Sorry if I read your intention wrongly.

GS/GSA test ride

I rode my '02 GS several hours to look at this '02 GSA which was for sale. I was most surprised by how slight I found the differences to be. The first gear, yes - but it's not as if the GS is...
