Nice 1976 wing. Those tube type tires are not fun repairing on the side of the road. I always travel with a tubeless tire repair kit. Needed it more than once. I had a black 1978 wing. Bought new, it had electrical problems. My 2012 is a world of difference.
The trip is the adventure. The destination is out there.
