    we were glad we were going this way instead of the other direction

    [​IMG]



    it got worse for these folks


    [​IMG]


    we saw some deer swimming a river but didn't get a pic


    I told ya we just took a good break at a gas station

    the old Harley 's gas mileage started dropping quick

    look down it was 60miles to empty then look down it was 40

    we 'd booked a room in avon, while hanging out at that last store

    the closer we got the quicker the gas dropped

    it was saying 6 miles to empty and it was 6 miles to avon

    then it said something to the fact

    yo, you need gas now

    as I worried, we rolled into avon

    checked into the hotel

    unloaded then went in search of gas

    this Is a prime example of how much Harleys gps sux

    it kept asking me if I wanted it to find the closest gas

    I punched and said sure


    here it says closest gas is 3.6 miles away then the next closest is 16 miles away

    [​IMG]



    I was setting at the gas pump, across the street was another gas station
    [​IMG]



    we gassed up

    looking for supper

    we found bobs place

    it was a packed out sports bar

    supper then back to the room
