... for highway driving on Buzz. The windshield works OK at 80km/h, but it buffets heavily at 120km/h, and it is almost painfull at 150km per hour... not that I spend much time at that speed. I am just amazed with adventure touring motorcycles. Not 20 hours ago I was moving fallen trees on a steep ATV trail, now I'm on a highway doing 150.

I can't believe it but we leave for Peru tomorrow! I'm writing this en-route from Hampton to Moncton. Emily, my parents and I are on our way to the Motel 6, which is handy the Moncton airport. This way we're pretty well guaranteed to make it to the aiport in time for our 6:30AM flight tomorrow morning (knock on wood).
