I'm gonna be on the road from the 17th to the 24th. Count me out on this one, darn it. Not enough recovery time for this COBB.

Brian, just head there from that last run instead of going home!

Not a bad idea, Paul, but looking at my rear tire, I don't think it'll do 6 more days of that kind of riding. Got this one in April & gonna have to buy another one this year, even if I don't take this trip. Can't afford the 6 more days & the tire at the same time, especially with the extra nights in a motel. Tire's got 8k on it now & it's getting pretty squared off already. The chip sealed roads around here are tuff on tires.

So how is that scooter of yours running Paul? Haven’t read any updates on it lately. Temps dropped by twenty degrees around here and the riding is excellent in the early morning at 50*. I just got back from a short blast thru the So.N.H. country side.
Stiff nipple temps, sweet!

Love it! Bike has been starting and running well. Chasing electrical gremlins. Correcte$ the bad ground at the front right signal, check. Got proper power to the “Skene” pods at the rear of the bike, check. Left turn switch not working and when use the right switch it jumps to four-way flash, no turn function. Getting real close though. Your bike looking amazing as always.
