Round trip miles and rough estimate on cost...because I damn sure didnt get 40mpg going through the mid-west with 45mph gusts of wind. Besides having to buy a tire from harley dealership....a tornado...hail storm.......trip was great...I gotta say this bike is perfectly capable of doing a road trip..is it as nice as a gold wing???...I would guess not..but with some lowers..I think I could have fallen asleep at the wheel..On the way back.rode from Winslow AZ to amarillo TX I believe about 520. From Amarillo to Conway Arkansas I think 580 could have those two reversed..then from Conway AR to Bristol VA 660 miles..back to back to back..But hurt a little on that one.....the rifle shield did great...changing oil and a and rear oil tomorrow...also grabbing some [email protected] filters...any other things Im forgetting besides a major cleaning tomorrow??? More pics and videos incoming..made my way to little town where wild hogs was made...and the ride around the East part of grand canyon was great....if you havent been there you gotta go...Pictures do that place no justice at all...

That's some serious miles Torn. I wish I had known you came thru here, would liked to have met you, glad you got back safe.
Was only in AR for one night...in Conway..dry county btw:dontknow: No cold beer in room to finish the day :( ...too many young folks running around (graduation) for me to do the bar thing. Im sure we could have had a great conversation :bigthumbsup:
