Day 15 - 110 miles. Total = 3,220 miles, NO TICKETS, tons of scenery, 1 very expensive rear tire, met lots of good people, 40 MPG what an awesome bike.



HOME, thanks for taking care of everything MOM.



Mom even bought me a new sign for my birthday.




ANOTHER EPIC ADVENTURE,

Great RR ..  really liked  the pics in Oregon riding the Gorge (page 6).
Is that the C. B. Ultra tour windshield? The dark tint is awesome. Would look good on my 2010.
I have the same trunk  and was thinking about getting the luggage rack as well. How much weight would you say you had stacked on it and was it a wind catcher ?

Ya, its the CB Ultra windscreen, I love it.

The luggage rack was great for this trip. I zip tied the sleeping bag to it. I try not to put to much in the rear trunk and I would not strap anything more than a short case to the rack :). As far as wind, hard to say when I was riding two up.
