    CONGRATS, you will need to keep this report for in no time at all you will have children /grand children and this trip will be like the early Vikings coming all the way across the Atlantic in an open boat.

    A first for you two in many ways, that clutch repair and the proposal :lol3

    WAY TO GO

    hugs to Nat for putting up with you all that way :lol3:lol3

    ride smart

    First, Thanks for your service.
    Second, Congratulations, her shoulder doesn't seem to be bothering her right now.
    Third, I like your style, you set a goal, and get it done, obstacles in the way?, up, over, around, or if necessary thru (the parking lot clutch change is memorable) .... Your success is assured.

    When I saw your ride report early on, I had to remind myself not to spoil "the rest of story" since I knew about the proposal after we met at Thompson's in Tok. :clap:freaky
    Hope everything is going well with you two and congratulations again!

    Great report. Thanks for taking the time to write it. Been to many of the same places you have. 70 mph on the haul road in the rain. Your a hell of alot better rider than me. Good luck.
