One Question: When they finally found your lost motorcycle, was my bar end weight in the crate?

Very nice! Enjoy!

lost bar end

numa. if I was you I would call the colletsville and the mortimer observer and post a reeward for dat bar end!! it would pump a little cash into the local economy and give dem mountian dudes somethin to do. also flasher has a metal detector he'll probaly let you borrow if you want to go back and hunt it yourself. you could mount it off the right painner bracket and just ride along on the sholder real slow.

They told me its probably not a good idea to park this one on its side like I do with the DR so I'll need to take a rain check on Sunday.....

I fear you would find it underpowered for your tastes... But then again it might help you get in touch with your softer side. So..... Sure.

I like the idea of the metal detector mounted like an outrigger. If I can find a second one to borrow for the other side, that would make for quite a rig! Who knows; it may establish a trend and large outriggers would replace knee pucks in MotoGP racing.

The funny thing is either would likely work. But my vote would be on the posting of a reward

Wish I could meet you guys during those thurs evening rendezvous but I work 2nd shift during the week.

I am game for a ride just about any time, just let me know the plan. I ride a GSX650F. Lots of people tell me mine looks like a BMW, I only wish it was
Someday though

So having met some of y'all in person and knowing that many of you have done big trips and all of you have an opinion :

I leave today to Phoenix to work for a week then begin my trip across the ol U S of A (bike has been there for a couple of weeks now ). Here's the route I got going - any sage words of wisdom on the route or doing a couple weeks on the road?

Part one:

Wish I could offer some insight. Been to many of the places but in completely different routes. Mostly east to west, not north to south.

Wish I was going!

Looks like a great ride. I've only done cross country in a cage so I'm afraid I can't help you either...

Unless you need to go to Almosa I'd ride the extra 11 miles through Pagosa Springs instead, if the weather is good. http://goo.gl/maps/ok34O

I'd also try to add the 114/50 up to Salida http://goo.gl/maps/Y0TBk

In part 2, why do you want to go through Indianapolis?
