    Our good friend Bob is circling the country currently, and I've asked him to lob some photos and words for me to post here. Here's the first (of hopefully) many...

    "We are now in Chattanooga Tennessee and a day ahead of schedule after putting a bunch of 600 to 700 mile days. The 1400 is running strong and has been running 80 to 90 mph for hours on end with no issues, and is loving all of your mods. I’m taking it into Stan’s Guzzi shop in Gainesville Florida for service on Thursday."

    "... 90 MPH for hours on end..."? Might consider holdin' it closer to the posted speed limit in Georgia.

    Just sayin.

    I thought I would post some info on my SCMA 4 corners of the US tour. My self and two friends on Harley’s are riding the 4 corners tour in 16 days instead of the allowed 21 days because of time constraints. We are riding mainly open highway except for hwy 40 across Colorado and Utah. We started in San Ysidro California then went to Blaine Washington. We are now in Tampa Florida getting an oil change before we hit Key West for the third checkpoint. The California 1400 has performed very well and we have been running a lot of 80 to 90 mph. The oil level stabilized at just above the add mark and if I added oil to that it would just blow it out thru the air box. I’m running Todd’s fueling and full exhaust system. Since adding the headers to the system and a fueling adjustment I have not experienced any hanging throttle issues and the bike runs crisper and stronger and cooler. Gas mileage has run from the low 30s to high 40s. The best mileage was thru Utah and Colorado at 4000 to 10000 ft getting consistently 45 to 49. At lower elevation at 80+ mph I was getting 37 to 42 mpg. I have had an issue where if I fill up the tank and in the heat and let the bike sit in the sun while eating it would flood the motor and was a bitch to get started. My solution has been to fill up when I’m ready to go and I haven’t had a problem doing that. I will try to get that issue sorted when I return to California.
    The Guzzi gets lots of looks and comments and performs great.

    To late tonerjockey, Georgia is long past although we did tone it down closer to 80.
