      Re: Total mileage

      Maybe having less than optimum compression and a stock fuel tank isn't such a bad thing.... I'm thinking that buying an up to date road atlas and updating the GPS maps version would be good ideas as well.

      Anybody else thinking about bringing a CB?

      With the out of the way routes you're describing - I imagine cell phone coverage will be marginal at best?
      We stop about every 100 miles and carry 5 gallons of fuel the extra fuel gets dumped in mine alot then refueled at the next stop, the extra fuel in the tank keeps it cooler as it heats going threw the bypass.

      Cell phones work, or Hand signals LOL

        Most cars are too loud it seems for cells and CB's. That said, I'll have both

                  We've been using those Radio Shack FM walkie talkies. Not the kids cheapies but decent ones. Use them on Power Tour and rides around the state here at home. Works great. They can use ear buds that work good also. That way you talk to the whole group not just one at a time. About 5 miles max. When Danny's battery's run out it's the best.

                    I can usually hear over the exaust, its the rockford fosgate amplifier cranked to eleven that interferes with my hearing any incoming phone calls

                        Is that because of the rear end noise?

                            NO....that is all fixed now. It might have something to do with 4000-4500 cruise rpms, and the pipes pointed down!!! Man I wasn't thinking when I did that.......

                            If I ever redo it, I will just dump them out the side like yours.

                              I was setting my phone in my lap, thats how I ran it over. I think someone has a pic of it at the previous checkpoint laying under the phone............Tom caught it that time though......
