Okay, I'm pulling back on the 60 hours for a few reasons. Most folks think I'm crazy to start with, but I didn't want to stress the bike out and needing to be there for work first thing Monday morning. So I'm leaving today, giving me a good four days of travel. I've got the new tire on and have changed my oil. I've looked the bike over and everything looks well, and it is running at the top of its game.
I think that I'll ride I-70 across to Castle Rock, CO and meet up with the V2V folks there Friday night. Then, it is off to the south to finish up on I-40. That'll give me a couple 800 mile days and a couple 500 mile days getting there. I'll push it when I return. I'll try to keep this updated over the trip to share some thoughts. Cheers.
