The weather in all towns of the trip show virtually no chance of rain the entire week with sunny skies. We may see some mud but at least it will be in sunshine.

The calm before the storm. I lost my rear ABS/Speed sensor. What kind if trip would it be without obstacles? So no speedo. No ABS. Guess I have something to do when I get back.

A couple of us took off this morning we ran the red leg of 239 when leaving grants, we were riding a 1290 and a 1200 gs, make sure you have a bash plate on the big bikes if you intend to ride this leg. Its worth it no matter what bike IMO. Camping in Cuba tonight.The Pie in Pie Town is worth the stop so is the pulled pork sandwich special.

Any grand plans for dinner? We are at Comfort Inn, looks like most of the hotels are in the same area.
