I put some new ones on but they didn't stay. So I took the baffle off all together. Since then the holes got bigger to the point that the collar almost came out. Before I left Keith's we machine screwed in the collar. All is good now. Not really much of a story I'm afraid. Sorry.
Hmmmm.....I must have missed something somewhere. I knew you had trouble......

I love the dog story...... ....I can relate.....

Oh yeah...ShooterMOM.......Great to see your support for Dave's trip..

Sense your coming to Alabama! Come on by and I'll give you my Super trapp to last you the rest of the trip. I'm in the northwest corner of the state. Not Mitch to see or do but I'll get you going with a better muffler . I also got an old MT21 with a little tread left if you want to stick it in your fanny pack.

Seeing you ride this far encourages me to ride more.....To bad I only work .6 miles from home.

The tank bag cost around $20. You can find it at rockymountainmc.com. Here is a link http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/pr...16&navTitle=AT

1. Did you custom make the stand yourself or someone else?
2. How is the rear rack mounted? I thought the rear subframes can't hold a lot of weight so how is it mounted?
3. What kind of tank bag is that? I have the same gas tank and I'm curious.
4. You are the man!

I went to Mountain Home Arkansas once for a boat dealership I worked for. I took a Cobra bass boat back to the manufacture (Cobra) for some repairs. Best I remember Bass Cat was there too. It is a neat little town and vary scenic. It's just east of you now. I remember a road sign that read 100 Ft decent left turn Min. 45 MPH. It was one heck of a turn. I hope you find it.

Awesome report. Really like the idea of pics at a dealership in every state.

By the way, back to the beginning of your ride, with the Droid phone. I also have an Android phone, the early G1. Just for future knowledge, all Android based phones automatically update your contacts and other info to your g-mail account. If you switch to another Android phone with the same account all will be automatically synced to the phone.

Looking forward to more. Stuck working 4 on/1 off night shift for a plant outage right now. Maybe by the time you hit South Carolina I'll have some time to meet up. Later.
