be sure and get the wife a back brace ...most drug stores carry them ..not expencive I have the same problems with my back ...and cant make 200 miles without the back brace ...can do 400 or more with it .
I believe both my Grandpa and my great uncle will be riding Harleys. As much as we like to make fun of them, modern Harleys can be nice for cruising. I know they took a trip up to Canada last year and did around 2500 miles.
The wife and I went through probably 6 back braces before we found "the one" and she absolutely loves it. She wears it all the time and it really makes a difference.

We'll be hotel camping unfortunately. If it was just me I'd camp all the way, but pop and uncle Larry are older and don't want to sleep on the ground. My wife's back just won't take camping for more than a night, but she loves it.
