    I'm sorry, my wife and I moved to Durango , Mex 3 months ago. After 7 years we had enough of beach town living and were back to the mountains although I still recommend stopping there. Entering from Nogales you will arrive there mid afternoon. If you come thru Durango let me know, we are 3 hrs east of Mazatlan and have a large house not far from centro with plenty of room so the offer for Durango is still good. This offer for a place to stay in Durango is open to all ADVers, just let us know when you want to come and if we're not on the road ourselves come see beautiful Durango.

    Wow Dave you signed up just for me? I’m honoured
    It was great to see you and swinging coils again. You brought me luck! That’s only the second Barber half I’ve dug in many years! It brought back memories. (Zoso and I used to metal detect a lot together years ago and recently rejoined in a hunt of an old Boy Scout camp)

    When I get decent wifi I’ll report in detail from the days I missed.
    I’m keeping a journal this time so that’ll help.
    Spent the day at Cogent Dynamics in Asheville North Carolina. (Rick Cogent thanks!) tearing Sunny down to remove the rear shock and pull both front forks.

    Shock was rebuilt with all new bushings, seals and fluid and has a fresh nitrogen charge.

    Forks got new seals, wipers, fluid and bushings. All back together now and am gonna go out to eat with Rick.

    What a great group of guys. All so accommodating to allow me to do the work on their doorstep.

    Dammit Dan, I've been a long time fan of Rokon, and a Baikal version Ural!
    But, Thousand Sunny got my vote.

    You guys kick ass!
    I’m horizontal in a decent motel bed somewhere in MO on my way West to AZ
    Long 13 hour ride today. Trying to stay out of the worst weather.
    I’m seeing ample evidence of recent flooding near the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers which I crossed today.
    Time to get back to the Tribe game.
