Hells Backbone Grill

My wife and I have done several moto trips through the years, passing through Boulder Utah. This place is not far from the Kiva cafe and the food is awesome and I would highly recommend it.

Anyone know of a USA option? I looked at the touratech.usa site but no go. Also Amazon and Barnes/Noble were a bust. :cry

Hey Ed,

What happened to your world map on the side cases? Did you feel too conspicuous as a foreigner or something?

You've got your head on straighter

Lalo,
I can tell you are in a better place in your head than you have been in a couple of months. Looks like your trip is getting better all the time. Been to the canal yet?

Ran them on a DRZ400SM

The rear was too wide for that bike and made the steering slow and hard to turn in. They would be way to wide for our narrow X rear rims and the profile would suffer.

I wouldn't count on their time line.

I called them about the same thing back in April. They said about 3-4 weeks at that time! Maybe they are "Time Warp" wheels.
