    Have you tried to guesstimate your round trip mileage, taking into account the group rides while you’re there?
    My hats off to you guys!

    That’s a hell of a haul on 50 year old motorcycles! I’m surprised you don’t have an iron butt patch. I remember that super long one day ride you took a couple years ago. You may not have the patch, but we all know you did it! :smoke:

    Rolling great distance trusting 50 year old motorcycles to make the trip and return. To me, this is one of the best parts of the hobby. I'm packing my thermals! Safe travels to both of you.

    John, I absolutely guarantee that you will either sell that red Special or toss that 2-1 exhaust after you've forgotten it's on there a few times and pitched over on some right handers. You'll probably have to toss it 'cause you're gonna grind the bejzus out of it--I know you, and I know force of habit!
