Well guys, I did it. Primitive 'road' and gravel with a little bit of off-road trails at the end - 34 miles, 19.4 mpg with plenty to spare. In fact, with the fuel cell full and a single spare 5 gallon gas can at that rate... I could have gone almost 200 miles... maybe something for another time?  Averaging 13.6 mph and getting there in around 2 hours 30 minutes. The roper performed (mostly) amazingly well. It does still have some things needing to be addressed - still a lot of slop in the front axle pivot I can't seem to get rid of. The seat HAS to be swapped out as it's extremely uncomfortable over longer distances. Every other big bump I  was like 'ow my 30 mile trip... (some pics and video) 252588580 ' if you catch my drift. I also need to further reinforce the bottom rack supports as they were sagging some by the time I arrived at the destination, though I knew they were only temporary. I can for the time being fix them by drilling 2 more holes and run bolts through the rear of the rack as opposed to letting the rack slide on them. Otherwise, as I said it performed amazingly well for it being so loaded down!
