Bike looks good JD! I may have to eventually do the 19" front wheel conversion on mine; even though I must say that I kinda liked all the attention that I got with a 130 TKC rear tire mounted up front! That and I was not displeased with the way it handled.

Happy trails to you and I'll be checking in from time to time. Unless something crazy comes up in the near future (like a job) I'm planning on heading out on the TAT around the 2nd week of September.

PS Other than the AirHawk, any seat mods? If not, good luck! I ended up picking up a piece of scrap 1x6 on the side of the road in Alabama about 3 days (1000 miles or so) into my month and a half/two month trip up to Alaska just recently. Knowing what I know now, I would definitely spend the extra money on a custom seat. That stock seat was not friendly to me.
