    Looks like you are moving down there; I couldn't find enough stuff to fill those bags. :lol3 Temps?
    Maybe even a full RR, something to make 42 proud of you!

    Have a great time and keep it safe.

    Sorry, I totally missed your post! I will claim macular degeneration or most likely just degeneration.
    When I stopped at Hall's; they replaced the bad needle valve, which seemed to fix the issue. Not! Calling there Saturday, Jeff put a needle valve with seat kit were I could fine it Monday, on our return home trip. There is a O-ring on the seat housing that was had a chunk out of it and stuck on the machined housing. The seat housing was defective like a result of port installation. Guess I was lucky, it lasted two years and failed before a ride and not during.

    Sunday was a hot ride. Temps hit 97 degrees. Saw some cool stuff. My favorite being the saguaro cactuses.

    But today the weather was crap. Rode from Globe to just South of Winona in the rain with the temps around 40.
    Tomorrow will be better!

    Doesn't look like we will be going at this point anyway. Weather forecast not favorable.
