Heading for Stillwater, OK on Tuesday AM. In the van with a trailer. And let's not forget the wife. Tempting, sure, but not. blink.gif

The wife and I left after a lazy morning and took k7lvo's (Lewis) advice on a pretty route. We took a lazy HOT ride home and arrived safe and sound.

Left around 4:30am yesterday and made it home by 10:30am. 101 to 199 to I-5. ABS malfunctioned again after 100 miles or so and is showing an ABS 11 error code again.

Thanks to everyone for their support and attendance. Really good to see folks and meet new people.

You didn't pass me, Richard. We (BlueFJR-Brad & MCML-Joe) pulled out @ 0630. 36/I-5/32/45. Heat wasn't bad early and riding along the Sacramento River in the farm land. Lunch in Colusa, home around 2:30.

Joe emailed he's in Tahoe for the night, raining over the summit. He'll continue home this morning.
