Sounds like a great plan. Don't count on roads being labeled at intersections. I'd guess only 10% were marked.

Looking forward to hearing about your experiences.

What I meant was I have a name on the roll chart now in adition to a gps coordinates, if that makes senses.

With two gps (one route and one tracks), two sets of roll charts, route maps and a State map I fully expect to get lost

Hope everyone had a great new years! Had my checkup last Friday to see how the graft took... Everything is progressing smoothly and I'm able to start walking with a cane at the moment. Should be able to get around without it in a couple of weeks, but even at the moment it beats crutches. Managed to snag a couple pictures of the xrays too before we left.





Won't be on the bike for quite a while yet the doc says so for the mean time I'll keep drinking milk and hope for the best!

Sounds good. Is that also known as "Brownie's Bean Blossom Inn" by chance?

Thanks, I actually put some effort into making this one. ;)

I used a c-clamp ram mount to attach to the WRR's subframe and then had an extension arm hanging down.

I know those guys and had been invited to ride with them that day. I chose to stay at home because all of my tiedowns were in my trailer, which is in my shop at school with the roof vent being repaired. I was going to tie the bike down on my hitch hauler and join them that day, but was too lazy to make the trip to the shop to get the tie downs when I realized I didn't have them that morning.

Sucks is right...

Just Wow!

Recently got a recall notice for my '98 E250 van w/210,000 mi. Had to do with possibility of fire.
I'm thinking maybe I shouldn't have pitched it.
