Weather’s been crappy here for the last couple days, so the bike’s been sitting.

I need to get out and clean the bugs off from a quick trip to Grand Junction we made earlier this week. Our timing was good because the weather was great on Sunday and Monday while on the road.

Had to go see a new grandson!!

Weather here is crappy too. Tomorrow I'm going to be working on fixing two sticky swithes (known problem on the 1800's). In the next couple of weeks she's getting new shoes. After that it's ride at every opportunity

Checked the air pressure this morning, put some new url in it. Nope not telling what kind . Hunted up some heated gear, some extra gloves, got my new rain gear out of the box and put that in the bike, (tried it on first) put a new battery in my voltmeter and put a few more tools on the bike, some spare fuses, light bulbs.........checked my air pump..........stuffed granola bars everywhere they will fit, along with a few drinks.

Packed one pair of jeans( I ride in full gear) and two extra shirts. An extra mesh jacket in case it gets hot.

In the morning the cell phone and my toothbrush goes in, along with my laptop and I am off for Californya.

First stop Mobile Alabamy.....527 miles down the road........then along the coast to San Diego........from there as the crow flies, up the coast, to Oregon, back down to Yellowstone, then across the top to Conneticutt, over to the east coast, down the outer banks and finally home.

Just a hop skip and a jump.

The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike. A crotch rocket with storage bags.............As for oil I use the slick kind, and I like round tires, but as of late I have found square ones work best on the rear. Pirelli Eufori 195/55/16 @ 32 PSI
