Whew!
9260 miles in 17 days.
I broke a clutch cable. I have some oil seep around the bottom of the rear jug, and I roasted a Metzler 888 in 8500 miles. I ran out of gas once in Oklahoma. Google Maps said a gas station existed that didn't. I was 3.7 miles away from a town. I had purchased a reserve fuel container from REI that worked great. 25 bucks for 30 oz. I recommend it to anyone taking a long trip.



I have a public album on FB so anyone can view it. I just need to link it.


Notable roads include Highway 1 AKA Pacific Coast Highway AKA Big Sur, 199 through the redwoods in northern Cali, 90W around 4th of July Pass in Idaho, a road leading into Yellowstone, and Tail of the Dragon (saw two Ferrari's).
One Hell of a trip.
sweetlu, rvcycleguy and guitarjim like this.

I have an '08 C50.
Everyone makes me ride at the back because of my Morton Violators.
Longest ride: 1241 miles in 20 hours 15 minutes


Interested in a replacement gas tank, in black, but I'm cheap
