We will be gone for about 2 weeks, beginning July 5th, 2015. Orders may still be placed through Paypal on our website, but shipments will not be made until we return, probably around the 20th. Sorry for any inconvenience, but after all, I'm supposed to be retired by now.   :lol:

We're going to be hitting Wheeler Peak in NV, Flaming Gorge in UT, The Bighorn Mtns and Devils Tower in WY, 2 or 3 days in the vicinity of Mt Rushmore, Badlands, & Black Hills of SD. (We're going a month before the big Sturgis event, because neither of us has any desire to spend any time around thousands of Harleys with open pipes and drunken riders.) On our way back we will go up through MT, over the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier Park, then down through ID parallel to Hells Canyon, to Ruby Mtn near Elko, NV and finally back home to Nor Cal. We're figuring on 2 weeks and about 3,000 miles.

Yep, my '94 with 108,000 miles on it. Gonna have over 110K on it before we get back. I could take the VMax, it only has 45K, but the Magna handles better and is much more comfortable on long hauls.
