What brand bike carrier please? I like the tie down locations.

Its the 600lb carrier from TMS. Got it from them directly, it was missing parts when it arrived, but luckily they came in the day before I left. I also added two 1/2" eye bolts (not in pictures) to some of gussets on the rear wall for extra tie down locations. It bounced around on the highway a lot before I put the two extra points of attachment on about midway through the trip. I got paranoid watching it bounce around in the rear view camera for 1200 miles. It was a good thing I did too because the Indiana toll roads are such crap that it would have bounced right off the back. I'm also pretty sure the ITR potholes messed up my fuel gauge sending unit too. It was rock solid indicating the fuel level the whole trip till we went down I-80/90 in Indiana. Now it jumps all over the place when you hit even the smallest bump. Still reads just fine on smooth road though. I should send the state of Indiana a bill for repairs... Also, with the 16" roof raise I still averaged ~ 9.5-10mpg throughout the whole trip. Only had one jack-hole say anything negative about the bus. Said it looked "Ominous, and would probably scare people." The 30 or 40 other people that sought me out at the rally specifically because the bus had our magnetic business sign stuck to the front had nothing but positivity for us, and our neighbors at the rally were all great people. I left a little swag for them on their bikes the morning we lit out of there. Nothing big just some hats and shop towels.

Oh yeah forgot about this picture too, from Cleveland of course... I'm pretty sure I watched one scared'e'cat see us and immediately pick up his cell to report us. So I got that going for me... Which is nice.

Check your ground wire for your fuel gauge, typically one of the 5 screws securing the sending unit in the top of your tank. Sounds like it's not making a good contact

Well, that's the trick, isn't it?

Gonna take the bus on another trip this weekend, although it will be much shorter at only 500 miles round-trip. I will try to get more traveling pics this time. We will be heading down to southern MO with some friends so they can float down the river and drink and my old lady and I can sit in the river at the camp and wait for them to get back. Should be a good weekend with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. It will be a nice vacation after the working vacation I just got done with...

Couple campground pics from the Eagles Nest Campground in wonderful Noel, MO. The bus ran great on the trip, got about 9.5 mpg on this run.

25-30 years ago that town was incredible!

Then the plant came to town... It just doesn't feel the same.

It's still cool how you drive under the cliff overhangs on the highway though

You just know some big shot from the highway dept. said "hold my beer and watch this!"
