Just to clarify...

I was the original poster but it's not me (unfortunately) on the bikes. It's two friends. *They* are father and son.

Anyone know what happened to these guys? Their story seems to stop on 6/27 in Nv. after a tire change. Or am I missing something?

The excitement of the trip passed and he never finished posting his photos of the rest of the trip. The dad is one of our customers and has been in the shop several times since their trip. He has said the son is still planning on posting the photos he took with a real camera. The ones he posted while they were one the road were from a phone.

About a week or so out, the dad called me one Saturday and started the phone call with "I just had to call and tell you about our bikes." I knew they were out in Montana or Wyoming somewhere so I thought I was about to hear about some problem they were having. Why else would someone call on a Saturday morning from vacation? The next thing I hear was something like "Man! These bikes are awesome! We just spent the last hour running about 100 mph across a straight 2 lane road". He was so excited about their bikes he just had to tell somebody. I don't condone those speeds on public roads and you have to realize the speedos are about 10% optimistic. But they were definitely enjoying themselves.
