T-Minus 8 Days and Counting!!!

Honestly, the bike, my luggage and finances are almost ready. The clutch judders a little when taking off in first gear, but she is solid. The engine purrs and I feel better with a fuel filter. I am only waiting for two things; a new set of tires and front brake pads. That's it. Once those two things are taken care of, I could leave. Well, I could except for the fact that I have work.

Ah well.

Over the last few weeks I have had the opportunity to be frustrated by clutch problems. Today it was work.

Working on a buggy hardware system that has questionable documentation in a language that is completely foreign to me is not my idea of a good work day. At least my motorcycle obeys the laws of physics.

The build-up to your trip has been an exciting read. I'm looking forward to continuing to follow its progress. What will be your starting and finishing points? The best of luck to you and Happy Trails!

Stephanie: Yup, everything is falling into place. New friction plates, new tires, new front brakes. Yee Ha!

Actually, I should be in your neck of the woods this coming Tuesday. If I see a woman riding a Harley I will be sure to wave!

Thank you, Kano. Starting point will be near Charleston and I95 in Las Vegas. A little independent motorcycle shop called MTC (Motorcycle Tire Center). Leg one will finish at my Mom's place in New Boston, IL. Leg two finishing spot will be near Burlington, NC. Final finish line will be my place in Henderson, NV.

Thanks for the well-wishes!
