    Welllll, I left my motorcycle in a container, with a half tank of gas and the keys:huh And when I left it, it had close to 13,000 miles on it.

    I'm not sure how many miles will be on it when it gets to Long Beach!:rofl

    We put a bit over 12,000 miles on each moto.

    James started the trip with about 4,000 miles on his bike.
    Mine was in the 1,000 range.

    those bikes aren't even 1/4 used up. Lots of 60,000+miles bikes on the DR650 thread.

    You'll be glad to get them back. Like old friends.

    Yes, that's what we decided. Anyway if mine gets a bit 'weak' I can always turn it in to a 790cc :clap..and fit supermoto wheels and tires :clap....and...oh well......Elton knows me well......I'll NEVER stop messing with my bikes.

    If it was here today I would strip it and wash it and ride it up the mountain (Mount San Antonio, Old Baldy) in back of us.

    Darn, I'll just have to see if my BMW R1200GS starts :lol3

    I typically don't comment on the ride reports as I'm usually misunderstood, so I lurk about. But every once in awhile I'm compelled by the characters, the story telling and the positive, consistent attitude that welcomes others to share in their experiences.

    Congratulations Tuckers and thanks for letting me come along on the ride.

    aWW, THAT'S SO NICE.

    You probably know Colleen's family, she has tons of them in and around Wisconsin......yes, even some in Appleton.
    The Frane girls are all married and so changed their names..... but you have no doubt heard of the Hahns?

    YES!! We are in the planning stages of a Rally here at the compound: Villa Maria Sanitarium.

    Tents, fire and drinks and foods................probably Two Wheels Only (fly in's excepted) and check your keys at the gate if you drink anything that affects your riding at all.

    I have traveled with you all the way (from the confort of my easy chair) and I am happy you took all of us along, I am sad that this trip is at is't end, I will not know what to do each evening without your adventures to read.

    welcome home tuckers-it was a well played adventure. The ride is exactly how I would do it. ride ride ride-stop only when needing to recharge or just a cool dang place to be. but most importantly, go for a ride every day!!

    I am with the rest of the readers, hard to let this one get wrapped up, you two were a part of my day or night every single day i was close to a computer.

    Well done!!!!!!
