"Shake Down" trip complete!
Well, after replacing 6 gorgeous toyo 22.5's with new ones... (painful $$) Wife, son and I set out on our 2010 "Shake Down" trip to work out and realize any problems / failures. (Beaver just out of storage for winter... 20 years old and anything can go wrong) All went very well! We drove from Portland, OR to Seaside, OR (86 miles'ish) and stayed with parents... then to Astoria, OR and back to Portland (about 200 mile round trip)
Very pleased all my hard work and preventative maintence work paid off.
That old Gillig bus chassis / Air bags / HD Koni's & Cat/Allison combo still wants to "Go" on the road!
