According to Mapquest, that's 1100 miles, so you averaged around 65 including stops, not bad.:cool: That's about what I averaged on my last trip. Soobies are real road-warriors...at least from what I've seen, they take to long trips pretty well.

I've been around the block a couple of times in my 83 Brat and 89 xt6. Both good cruisers, but one is definitely faster than the other.
