Hey guys! Much respect for throwing a leg over the Duc and showing that you can do serious mileage. Couple quick questions- how many miles did you get out of the pirelli's? Did you switch to dunlop q2's? Any thoughts on compare/contrast b/w them? Also. do you and Jay have blue tooth or comm's in your helmets? I'm assuming that you also have a back pack as well as your tail bags- over the long haul has that gotten old or is it no big thing? Lastly, are there any things that you wish you really had brought along with you or done differently (clothes, gear, fuel canisters or anything?) You're trip sounds awesome and it's been great reading about it + the quality pictures have been sick! I am moving to southern AZ in August and even took a few of the roads down to enjoy this fall. Thanks again for posting and good luck with the your ride!
