Look at that DR650, I’m a bit familiar with that machine!  Hope it holds up well for you, I have cash here when you return.

Fueling in Shoshone now heading to Beatty / Titus Canyon area.

So far things are great. Sleeping next to a loud train does suck tho!

Goofy, well done, I went down Titus today, Was looking for you :) , but was a day late.  Home now.  I hope you didn't head home in those gnarly high winds today, thick fog at the top of Cajon pass and pouring rain at the bottom. Safe travels.

For a CC, I don't need a bag. It must be a young guy thing just to eat up some asphalt. After 200-250 miles backroad, my ass start crying and ask me to stop. Well done Dave.
