    The bike is doing well. It had its first oil change yesterday in Eureka.
    My bag is not perfect. It moves a little too much on rough roads. Not really a problem.

    Do you have RokStraps? A pair of them is simply the only way to go.

    Your best bet for finding Rok Straps in a store will probably be a BMW shop. That brand dealership tends to keep the best stock of adv/travel/touring gear.

    There is one just north of Eureka, and about 4 in southern Oregon.

    I went to Bison National Range. Unfortunately, no motorcycles allowed.
    No bison for me!

    That is, until Yellowstone NP

    Just as he said.
    I'm on the last days of my trip, heading back to Salt Lake City area to store my bike until my next time here.
    I'm leaving Bear Lake for a last bit of the BDR.
    I must say that I really enjoyed my time in the US

    Nice meeting you at West-fest.
    Good to see your ass is still on that slick 2x4 seat.
    Safe travels. Come visit in New Mexico next time.

    Bernard earned a 2X doubler on his man card for tolerating that torturous slab for 6 weeks...
