    You might want to re-think riding up 22 hwy in North Dakota. The truck traffic is brutal and dangerous. Read my post about
    broken windshields up here. Your call. Ride safe.

    Thanks again for the send off.

    That was my second time riding with a KTM. I have yet to ride with the same brand twice (while touring).

    Good luck with the move this spring, eh.
