Temperatures can get high and you can be miserable driving in high heat in a deuce, not to mention engine cooling. If you do decide to drive, I would recommend driving after the sun goes down and there are cooler temperatures, assuming that your lights are working well. I've recovered two deuces, one a 17 hour drive from PA to GA and the other a 27 hour drive from Wisconsin to GA. I enjoyed both trips, although the trip from Wisconsin was in the winter and VERY cold driving. Good luck.I’m quite tempted to, but he doesn’t know when the last time it had deep service was (bearings, shoes etc). He rebuilt the air pak and takes it for small spins here and there and he said the tires aren’t too bad. But it’s also triple digit temps now and the heat likes to make gremlins creep up.
if I sell my m1009 this week I’ll be heading to El Monte to look at it and if I like it, buy it. If it was only $600 or so to ship I just assume do that and take any risk out of the equation.
It’s a pretty boring line to Yuma, good view of the Salton Sea along the way.
