Excellent pictures! Congrats on a life long memory ride.
A couple of questions-
1) at what rpm were you cruising at 80 mph?
2) did you change the gearing any for those speeds?

I'm headed west at the end of Sept. I've changed the front sprocket to a 16 and cruise around 75mph at 5,500 rpm . Also, when I changed the front sprocket, the Speedo is dead on according to my GPS.
If you did not change the gearing, and not using a GPS, you were probably going about 73 actual at 80 indicated.
