How about a F800GS that likes to swim with knobby tires? I don't think my backside would last on the 450 more than 3-4 hours, and I'll use 1 of those getting there, and another getting back.

Thanks. Though I haven't ended up in a front yard yet, I've seem my share of dead ends, or gates.

How often is there fuel? Still on the stock tank so im stuck at 100 mile range unless I bungee on the rotopax. I'd prefer not to hold everyone up. Shes still a project in the making, and a bigger tank will be coming sooner or later. That or the rotos will get a rack made up to run them.

I can only make it about the same mileage.

In Paris right now. The $17 breakfast includes a small croissant, orange juice and a shot glass of coffee. Perhaps that is why there is a conspicous lack of obesity here.

The elephant ear, double corn dog and giant Mountain Dew breakfast popular at the Coshocton Fair produces the opposite.

Photobucket won't upload my photos. Socialist conspiracy. And to top it all off they didn't have any freedom fries.

If you fill up in Middlefield you will be fine. It's only about a 50-60 mile route.

SOD, you should be fine on your f800, but we stop and chat a few times so don't be afraid to bring the small bike.

On another bad note, water in restaurants is really expensive, but good beer is often cheaper. The subway system is great, just don't stay out too late as it shuts down at 1AM and will leave you stranded looking for a bus or taxi. How long are you staying there?

I'm pretty sure it this. If I had a way of getting a pic I'd get off my lazy ass and go get it only about 35 miles from me!

Looks like I may be out anyway. Wife has plans Saturday morning, and won't be back till around 9AM. Even if she gets home on time, I would be pushing it to get there by the 10AM start. Maybe I'll catch up with the pack part way.
