|Tank Cat might have been even a better choice for this trip!|
|Nebraska roads were much kinder to us!|
The bikes ran better and better with the lower altitude. I adjusted the A/F screw fatter as we descended and frequently had to adjust the idle speed. The bikes were also using a little bit of oil, and the chains were stretching at an alarming pace. I've been adjusting the chains every morning as part of the daily routine maintenance, and by the end of the day, you can hear them dragging. Something will have to be done soon.
