It all went too fast and Jane was even a little sentimental turning her bike in. The 650 GS's were more than adequate for the trip. Other than one burnt out headlight, fixed by a quick stop at a NAPA store, they worked great. All the planning paid off as we had no major glitches on the trip.
Met people from all over the world including Denmark, Holland, New Zealand, Australia, Germany, Spain, Argentina, and the UK. Probably the strangest thing happened in McCarthy which is in the middle of nowhere 60 miles form the nearest paved road. Jane and I went into an art gallery and heard people talking about DeWitt and Davenport. It turned out the owner of the shop was from Humbolt and the three other patrons were from Dixon, so all 6 of us were from Iowa.
