700 miles in 15 hours

Day 1

Carriage House inn in Utah. After a 15 hour day on the road, the only thing I could think of was sleep. We stopped for gas several times, but only ran out of gas once, along the Barstow Fwy near the Zzyzx Rd ramps. After riding my bike for five years, it was a first for me, riding it to the last drop of fuel. The odometer read exactly 150 miles when the engine cut off. Auto club offered to bring gas but they said it would be a 90 minute wait. Fortunately there was a filling station about a mile away and Mark and Ray filled the gas can there, doubling back to get me off the highway.
