Thanks Bill! I just added a crescent wrench and some zip ties to my Goldwing tool kit.
I know what you mean detdrbuzzard, I've been told things like "You go out of town out here about 8 miles & you look for a right hand cutoff a little bit past that is Larry's point & you make a left at the 2nd road after that. Don't make the 1st that goes to Ginther's Ranch." It is interesting but somehow it all makes sense." go into town and make a left a such and such ( don't remember the name of the street now ) street " and i told them " even the street signs are missing " so where do you want me to make this left turn
I try to keep the bike as straight as possible, don't worry about the cars behind that want to go faster & look for soft spots to stay out of. This particular one wasn't terrible because it was mostly straight. We hit a series of 4 going into Greybull Wy. that were pretty rough & that was at night (a little harrowing) & the worse one was in Montana where it was ripped up down a twisty mountain. There they had a redlight on each end to let one lane at a time go. That was when I said to the little lady "The next one of these we have to go through can you take some pictures & I need to share this?"Nice road! Man, I get a little tense with a little gravel. Don't know how I would do on that.
