Tent..check..Sleeping Bag..check..Kitchen Sink..check

Loaded up ready to leave at 0ark:30. We're heading to Iron Mountain AR. The C.M.A national rally is this week.

I hope it's slightly cooler up there than it's been here in Houston this week.
It's about a 420MI. putt from the house. I should be there around 15:00 Weds. unless we find a buffet en-route to slow us down.

I installed my new Willie & Max bags (fathers day swag) and picked up one of those $18 Wal-Mart butt pad things y"all were bragging about.

C-Ya in a week or so..Be safe !!

See, you can load up a car with luggage - and nothing.

You load up a bike and it screams adventure!

Enjoy your trip.

There is absolutely nothing as attractive and exciting as a bike that's loaded and ready for the trip. I don't care if you're a minimalist, or a pack rat. I get more inspiration from seeing a real rider's machine, than I do from looking at any high dollar custom.

I can say this now!!
"Been there done that!"

You afe going to have a blast!!!! ride safe and enjoy!!!!
Oh, watch your saddle bag on the right side so it doesn't get into the pipe. Mine had a strap pull out of the stitching and fell right on to the pipe. It sure made a mess too! Bag is fixed now and the pipe is clean so nothing to worry about if it does get onto the pipe.

Have FUN!!!
