I was wondering whether you folks would end up on 81 or the parkways. The nice thing about the parkways is the beauty is a distraction from the monkey butt and the saddle time. I'm glad you guys chose them, as they will make the trip more memorable, and especially glad the Butty Buddy helped the Mrs.!
I just gooled it, I've never seen one before, but that thing looks amazingly comfortable!
Hope today is a great ride!
