    Drove all the way from Canada to Yuma, Arizona . . . IMG_20190128_104319-1.jpg
    and spent a month in Yuma. Mexican border is a few miles south and that is where I had dental work done in Los Algodones. Two hundred people take that border crossing every day for the same reason - an incredible saving. So much so that I cancelled my Canadian dental plan, and if need be I can fly down from Vancouver and get dental work done quickly and right away and still save about 60% on cost including hotel. Imagine a new bridge + a crown and a root canal: all US $1,120 versus a Canadian quote of CAD $12,000.

    I took my rocket down to Yuma as well and here is a picture of the kind of curvy road one can expect within 240 miles around Yuma . I nearly fell asleep more than once.

    Guess you could be in a good position to tell us about your mileage (with a reminder of the engine mods) ?

    This is a GREAT post -- what this site is all about.

    THANK YOU THANK YOU

    Dave,
    The AZ 191 I have ridden many times from Bozeman, MT to Morenci has no straights like this.

    Edit - WOW! 191 goes all the way up to Canada and down to Mexico!
