Fun Fun Fun!!

When I die, I want it to be on my 100th birthday, in my beach house on Maui, and I want my husband to be so upset, he has to drop out of college.

No, she's an engineering major. What an incredible packing job, and I love the way you have your bike set up.

Whoa! Whoa! Back Up!

For those of us who own 8 inch lights, please provide more detail on your bracket to attach the wind screen, and which wind screen did you use? I know I'm know I'm not the only one looking for this info. I need to have my subframe welded so this is a good time to take the light bracket to the welder as well! Many thanks, and that's a cool bike!
What a lovely bunch of coconuts.

A week too late

I am headed south for a similar ride next wed so I will be following along closely. Coming down the coast then east from Santa Barbara.

I'm finally going to let go and ditch the camping gear and rough it

Have a great ride and keep the RR coming with lots of pics.

Oh and you should marry ME instead of the other dude

Very cool! I love that area, particularly Joshua Tree. Ride safe, post LOTS of pics!
Just look at some of the belligerent/anti-social behaviors of some of the senior members on this site.
