I thought we were doing Echo?

Either way I'm still in. I'll be on the road first thing in the morning- just have to load the bike and fill everything with fuel. :happay

Mounting mine tomorrow. A bike that clean is never ugly. You're making me feel guilty for letting mine be some modicum of dirty pretty much all the time.

Can you not strap can on the back? Or stash in the desert on the way in? We've done that before.
