      I was waiting for someone to bring this up Brad_G its our sleeping quarters, saves me $60/night on hotel room vs. RV spot. Its only 50 miles down the road for me, and trust me I've ridden the routes numerous times doing research on stops and such.

      Totally understand Jaybo, just giving you a hard time. I wish I had a setup like that to take the bike along, that would be pretty cool! Ride safe with everyone and I'm looking forward to hearing about your M&G.

      Ya know steve, I'd comment on this but it'd get back to Judy and that would not be a good thing...

          • Stopped in Pendleton Oregon for a pop and gas... Fuel sending unit must have taken a shit (replaced it within past 1500 miles) needle on empty and gas light in but only took 2.8 gallons. Figured out my gas mileage accurately factoring in speedo error / odometer error.... Actually getting 36-38 mpg when being reasonable at 65-70 mph... And prob 28-29 when 85+ mph. Can't figure why sending u it went bad so quick.... Hot as balls out and already over 2000 miles since Sunday morning.

              Ethanol gas my friend, Your making good time enjoy your holiday Scott.

          • Ethenol will permanently hurt sending unit. I have been stuck finding gas stations that have 10% ethanol the last several fill ups Curry before that I was lucky to find specifically non-ethanol fuel.

              I dunno, as far as I know my sending unit is original and have 63k on it and all it has seen is ethanol fuel. I guess YMMV

                    Yeah should have taken 20 across and skipped Portland. Would have been a little bit cooler and less wind than the gorge.

                • Finally here and waiting to get checked in

                  • Had to drive 17 mi into Eugene Oregon to find a self-serve coin operated pressure washer. First one I went to took a bunch of quarters and never turned on. Next one was real sketchy area next to like a homeless Camp LOL. Got all the bugs and Road grime off the purple dragon. Back at hotel going to take a shower and think about some food. When are all you guys heading here?
