I'll answer my own question

To answer my own question...

A motorcycle offers a sense of freedom a car/SUV/truck doesn't. When I'm on my bike I feel I can go anywhere. Touring and camping on a moto allows me to strip down...

You are welcome

Any time! the Avenue is so impressive, I wish I had ridden it north as well

really enjoy my stops there.

It was Uber fun! I was telling my moto friend in Denver about
it, and how I'd love to have an R6 or CBR 600 RR to run that

Glad you are enjoying the RR.
