I went on a 9,730 mile trip from Pennsylvania to Oregon, to Louisiana and back home this summer. The trip took 7 weeks. When I hit the Arizona desert, the temperature was over 110 and the bike started having vapor lock type issues. It took 6 hours to ride 100 miles. After leaving the desert, the bike ran fine again until Louisiana when it started acting like it wasn't getting fuel again. I had replaced the fuel filter in Billings, Montana and bypassed the bank angle sensor in Arizona. I followed the instructions and replaced my fuel pump with the Honda Accord pump and so far the pump is working perfectly. The help and money saving tips on this forum are fantastic.
You can do whatever you want as long as you are prepared to pay the price if caught.
