You've got me thinking road trip... I'm actually moving to Northern California soon, but I'm also planning on spending some time this spring/summer riding all over the place. I'm retiring from the army very soon, and I'm intentionally not looking for a job right away...I want to spend some time traveling before I get into my second career. Australia is on the calendar in a couple months, then by June I need to be back in the US to take care of some business and that's about when I'd like to start riding to different parts of the US. So who knows...I could be around for rides in the Rockies this summer. By the way, how do you like the ROX risers? I got some basic 1 inch risers (either from twisted throttle or touratech...can't remember which). I like the height, but occasionally think I might like the bars a little further back.
