First...Welcome to the asylum Joey!! There are quite a few guys who ride 'potatoe burners' like yours on here, so don't be shy. This is the best place for all things regarding murdercycles!!
Next...are you back home, or are you in your tent posting this from a laptop??
I ask b'cause I live in Coos Bay. I could bop over the hill (I live in the 'sunny' side of town), and we could grab a beer or four.
Have a great trip, and lemme know if you're still around!
(edit)...upps....just reread your post and see you're back to work = home
