Still catching up and loving the ride. There's a ton of great info regarding weather, costs and logistics. Thanks so much for taking the time to post everything.
On the seat topic - I once heard you have two options; wait ten years for the foam to break down or eat a double cheeseburger every day.

Two-up and only that much luggage? Where's their rider report so I can find out how they did that?

Yes, we thought the luggage was rather minimal for two!

I can't remember where they were from. Met them again in Ushuaia.

Number one on the 'to do' list checked off, Mike. Next new garage doors coming soon, house painting after that, pour concrete and move the spa after that.....
Ahhhh, it goes on and on and on................

But....... more importantly than all of that....... in the morning we are headed out again......

Thee Matt McConnell of Surrey arrived today and he and James put away a serious amount of Guinness........

In the morning we three are headed out to Laughlin, Nevada and the following night we will hit Las Vegas...... James has picked out all of the possible back roads to ride.

It's been in the 80's here in Claremont..... absolutely beautiful riding weather.

We rode 200 some miles yesterday. We ran up to Newcomb's.....The
Angeles Forest Highway and the Crest were absolutely glorious! Magnificent mountain views!!!!:

We had an outing this past week with The Spaceman. We rode to Lake Havasu, Arizona, and then on to Laughlin, Nevada and finally to Las Vegas.

The Massive Mojave is always a pleasure to ride. The butterweeds and senna were in bloom and the desert colors are a delight.

We rode along the Colorado River, Lake Mead, The Parker Dam, Lake Havasu, and crossed over Hoover Dam.

This is our friend, Patty who winters in Lake Havasu. We called her as we we stopped for lunch in Havasu. Patty ran over to say hello! She's a live wire and well into her 90's.
