    Have a good run to you, Winnie and all the crew involved, looks like it is cooling down for the trip across we were expecting 40deg tomorrow.
    Will catch up on the run somewhere.

    I'd love one but I don't think I could justify spending as much on a used bike that's nearly time traveled from the 1950's as I did on my car.

    If you really want one then look for a used 2009 and later with an EFI Unit engine. The frame and forks are mostly the same as the pre unit bikes but the shocks are gas over oil and the swing arm is lengthened. Engine and brakes are way better. Its more 1978 or 1989 really.

    Using a 16 tooth sprocket, finding it just great. The 16 gives Winnie more for the hills with out changing gears, a little spare for cruising and seems to cruise better generally. Will do a few fuel range checks as the ride continues.

    Beet, I am trying to make a donation but the site says my e-mail is invalid. Have sent a note seeking guidance.

    Best of luck to you and everyone! :beer
