One of my favorite places on earth, the Redwood forest of California and girls in red and black leather! Had these sent by a travelling pal.
A good example if you think you can do it you often can. 2 week trip worth a year of riding local. Needed a 60 series ME33 front tire on rear to clear rear fender LOL! handled great but low profile slowed me on return. I had a Continental on rear going down more like 90 series I think.

The forest has good hammer rocks too! saved about 5lbs on my tool pack. LOL!

Steve,
All in all, looks like a great trip! Is this now the yellow cafe type 441 you drive?

Yup, PC803 1969 2 barrels and a crank pin ago was running 19/47 full open the whole way. The trip got me the original tail piece that was the part mold/starting point for seat in Kevlar & glass. I chased that DR600 and the 750 Ducati that is in the garage as I type. I am adjusting it's crazy jingle jingle clutch. When we rolled further into California a state trooper heard the BSA going through a valley at dinner time and told the Ducati guy the exhaust was illegal and banned in the state until we pointed out we were tourists.
22 was a fun year,

I found the master link after 2 hours and 600 yards of searching!
LOL!
