    Ugh ... wheel bearings.

    Roy got stranded in Kansas during the SBR. James got stranded on his way home from the BAT.

    Glad I got mine replaced after returning from the IBR start this year, at 130k. Now I have one less thing to worry about as we get close to The Void!!

    A little late in reporting but here is my route for the SBR, 3800 miles. No stress ride except that we lost 11000 points at the table. 15 teams/30 bikes started. 12 finished, we were 11th. My SBR number is 011. SBR 19.jpg

    Lakota, was Roy Kjendals partner your family, too? I suspect yes & that's amazing that you all have the long distance bug. Good job in the rally

    Two old long riders just happened to bump into each other in Pine Bluff WI this morning. We swapped Dalton and Dempster stories. I wish you nothing but good luck with your wife Steve. Men do what men have to do.

    Well, she falls short as a long distance machine. The trip was about 300miles 1 way. The seat really needs to be addressed and the fuel range is a bit short. I was getting about 90-100 miles before the fuel light came on. I would like to slim down on the luggage as well.
    Yep, my back is doing much better.
