At least that’s what they looked like new. As you can see in other pictures, we’ve added lots of farkles (functional sparkles) to make our trip easier. Saddle bags to carry all the clothes and things we’ll need for the trip. A support vehicle will follow us with spare parts and major tools, but we’ve got to carry everything else. Cathy put matching 3M reflective tape on them to increase our visibility.

World of Wheels (http://www.wowmotorcycles.com/) provided parts,  services and arrangements for getting our bikes to Europe.

    Love reading your posts. Do be careful and will see you when you get back. Meanwhile, we are fine. Rae is still making bowls and will be going to some holiday shows starting this weekend and I am recuperating from ankle fusion surgery. Not particularly painful, but slows me down. Bummer! Keep biking, SAFELY!!! Rita and Rae
