Hey Chip, good for you. Great photos, and I really like that flag. They are mandated when you ride in the dunes, and now I know why. Once on a whoop-tee-doo I hit on a logging road, I almost got nail by a Jeep comming the other direction. Since then, a flag is alway on my bike..
With your photos, it seems you are the first entry. As well, it looks like you do not have a rear (Cyclerack) rack.
Be safe my Friend......
