Here here...yes, have a safe trip. Not sure if you saw this or not, but a new "slow down or pay up" campaign is starting today in Wash St...looks like extra patrols will be working the roadways for the next few weeks, so keep the ole speed down on I5 (at least through Wash anyways)

Only taking the 5 to southern Oregon and then hitting 101 and Cali 1 the rest of the way to LA. Should be very scenic and fun!

That should be fun. I'm planning a drive down to SF later this year for a stealth V1 install.

if you can do it, take Hwy 1/101 south of Carmel....the stretch along "Big Sur"...it's one of the best stretches of road in the country...beautiful views of the Pacific and some great twists along the way...if you have time, there are a couple of restaurants to take a pit stop...have a brew and check out the view. Truely stunning...

Yes I am happy that Dinan got it out in time but I know the story is much more complicated than that from everything I have gathered...

Glad to hear your ordeal is over. Hey, where in AZ are you heading? I might drive to Phx on Jul 30th to take my daughter to see Lady Gaga... if I can find tickets tomorrow (NOT buying from a ticket scalper). Would like to hear just the Dinan muffler in person (Biglare has the midpipe too, unfortunately).

Hey, AZ guys, how's HWY 70 from Lordsburg to Phx??? Don't want to ever drive there thru Tucson again. And does anybody know for a fact if out-of-state drivers don't get cited by speed cameras? Last time I drove to Vegas I could swear a camera took my picture (saw flash) and never got a ticket. Wonder why. And yes, was definitely going 10+ over . Sorry for the slight hijack, but after OP got his mufflers, this is just chat, right? Have a good one folks.
