I have a little over 6000 on my Raven rear and I have ridden it pretty hard, so it should last you for a road trip with some Harleys.  ;D
Keeping the economy going, one tank of fuel and two tires at a time.

Joel, make sure you stop at the leather store right north of the traffic circle on the west side of the road in Mt. Vernon. Its a neat place run by a neat lady and her son. Theres also a big antique store across the street too, also very interesting to visit if its raining or to take a break. Lots of nice roads in the area. Good luck.

If you have time to ride around while there 164 from Leesville to Lisbon is a great ride.  I haven't been there for quite a while but it was good then, sure it's good now.

    Great may not be a strong enough adjective!

You gotta stop in the Iron Pony............and OHIO has some seriously good roads, although the HOG riders won't like all their chrome scraping. ::) You are a better man than me, I couldnt deal with the loud, slow and obnoxious Harleys.

Back from the trip! on the way back 500 miles before home, took off and never look back, call my friends the next morning and made up an excuse for taking off, the entire trip 70mph, the C14 loves 90mph cruise oh well i don't have other friends that ride sport tours..... I have a cruiser but i don't think i woud do that kind of trip on it......
