Anyone offer other advice or correct above?

You've got a tire repair kit with a portable compressor in case of a flat tire ?

Looks like days will just miss you. In Sunday from SBP and South Bay for couple days midweek. Definitely riding by Rock Store. You have 15 years on me, but use it or lose it motto.

Re: Four Corners Plus Planning

I have done two 4000 mile 10 day trips on my old 76 R90/6. I was much younger. The last day was just short of 800 miles and I was dead beat tired. Averaging 10 - 800 mile days would be like doing the Iron Butt Run 9 days in a row.

Have fun.

Re: Four Corners Plus Planning

When you're in Denali, take Denali Air flying around Denali. On a clear day you will be a few thousand feet below the peak. Fantastic. Now, Moncton, NB is great. Spent some time there as a base for daily side trips (in a cage) through PEI and NS, to include Cape Breton. Do the ride.
When you're out west, circle Crater Lake, OR.
