Nice! Travel safe. Hope we get a ride report- how many miles in a day, the performance of the Wing, why you returned....... Thanks ZG  :motonoises:

Thanks guys, nope didn't bring the Unigo trailer on this trip, still need to get the wiring harness installed on the Wing, no camping on this trip and I'm solo so didn't need the extra carrying capacity. Hoping to get that all done prior to the Bun Cooler in May so I can take it for a shake down trip.

I arrived Vegas yesterday evening safe and sound, as for a ride report... 80% of the trip down here was awesome, the 20% that was less than awesome was a long stretch where it had just snowed the day prior so there was gravel/sand on the roads and a couple other spots crossing dessert that the wind gusts were pushing me around more than I care for. Weather was as good as can be expected for this time of year, only challenge was being warm when it was cold and cool when it was hot, the 2nd one was more a challenge as I wore my Stich and was warm once the temps hit 90. As for miles I'm not a mile eater like many of you on here but I did do the most miles in a day I've ever done before, I did 624 miles yesterday which was the first time breaking 600 for me, Saturday was 500. I bought and brought along another Airhawk R just in case as this was the first trip on the new seat, I never needed to put it on and my butt felt great so I'm really happy about that and can now sell the Airhawk.

All and all great trip down, looking forward to hanging out with Pops today and then leaving tomorrow early AM heading back home.  :great:

Bet after your 600 mile day, you were still able to get on the wing to go out for dinner after unpacking  :great:

Glad you had a great time and returned safely! Did you use heated gear? I have wondered many times which was worse; packing up a wet motorcycle cover or leaving the bike uncovered overnight. At least you had a heated seat to remove the frost.

Yep, I had my heated gear on every day but one, and was glad I did, without it I would have been cold for sure and I wasn't. The Stich was great, it never did leak through and I water tested the heck out of it! :great: :great:
