Don't know how I missed this ride report till today, but, read the whole thing this morning. Great pictures of some great country. Thanks for all the work of sharing your journey and pictures with us.
Tip, next time you're in some long, boring country. Stay off the Slab and do the back roads and little towns. So much more to see and occupy your time with. I also try my best to hit the tourist traps at opening time in the early morning and avoid much of the crowds and having lots to myself till they wake up and get there.
Have not had a Wee Storm , but did a quick Calif round trip on a DL1000 I had for 14 months and 18000 miles. Had an engine stumble that sucked at times in low speed situations that I never had on my 3 BMW's before and have not had on my present 1250S Bandit.
Again , Thanks for the ride report.
