I got the chance to put a couple thousand miles on it last fall with a trip out to the Black Hills and a two day run over the passes of the Big Horns, great fun. Am currently working up a plan for a trip to the west coast in the spring.

Give me a shout if you come thru Colorado Melby, I'll show you over one or two of our favorite roads...
