... the only patrons there the entire time, she wouldn't allow it. She even protested any tip. Thanks! Highway 60 headed to Vaughn. This was an incredible road with an actual shoulder to ride on. We were flying down the road, and because we had such a great shoulder, I was able to look around and take my eyes off the road.
