    Left home Friday morning and got down to Little Rock, Arkansas 12 hrs later. Averaged 68 mph. Loaded a 2011 Victory Cross Country in box and headed home. Just the right weight to make the SD ride nice. 16 hrs home with a little nap around Kansas City. Low of 16.2 mpg and high of 19.4 so all round not bad. My sons new ride. I have a 2009 Victory Vegas Jackpot so now if it warms up a little more should be riding time. Trip went better than the prep before leaving. I changed fuel filters and couldn't keep it running. Never had it happen before but ended up charging batterys and lots of cranking. Then while changing oil I used a 5 gal bucket and found out it had a crack in it and at least half the oil ended up on my shop floor while I was changing oil filter.
