I'd put them to work cleaning up the fire disaster. They've played around enough already.

I suspect Ole Git Super Ray, and Karen are having a trip of a lifetime. And it sounds like it couldn't happen to a better pair.

And now I'm glad to see ole Pluric plays ambassador with aplomb. Imagine.

Thanks for making us look good. :)

My wife also found the seat to be more comfortable than stick. I would saynits better but a bit firmer than I like. Kind of reminded me of a new corbin for firmness.

Hope this helps...more after I ride it more

Saddlemen says there's a 1500 mile break-in period, looking forward to your next report.

Bring your wife and Amy.

Ray's wife Karen is a perfect travel companion for him. I could barely finish
a sentence of "Do you want...." and she was "Sure. Sounds like fun."



...........................
I hope so... probably next year... but don't expect my wife doing like Karen.. she's not very adventurous...

But I could do it for the two

Glad you have a nice time!

You might be able to hook up and give them some packing pointers. They are planning on doing
Death Valley in August. I gave them a couple of those riding vests that are designed to be
soaked in water and then cool you through evaporation. I hope they help.

Super Ray called me today and said Karen was a bit off her game. So they were going to stay
at the lake a little longer to rest up and get her feeling better. Said I missed a roaring party at
my house last night. I half believed him.
