Well I made it to las Vegas yesterday. Leaving tomorrow for Phoenix and then east on the southerly route 10 and maybe 20 to Florida. Tehachapi,ca was freezing. Went to the dark side. Put a kumho 195/55/16 run flat car tire on my Goldwing. Amazing handling and ride. Took about 30 minutes to get used to it. I wasn't sure if it was the tire or the difference between the Goldwing and my versys in chiang Mai. See ya back in CM mid dec.
