Thanks. Yep, lots of gripping at times about the bike but overall it's a winner IMHO. No thread of my own for the upcoming ride. I may do a report for some of it. It will be more a plain long ass ride than an adventure unless things go sideways, at least until I hit NM or AZ. I'm headed out to ride Death Valley with the 790 west-coast contingent. I'll buzzing west on a fast southerly route but not quite as far south as Dallas unless weather pushes me that direction. Plan is a death march across I-40. Probably won't slow down until I hit NM or AZ. I appreciate the kind offer!
