Checked the air pressure this morning, put some new url in it.

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.

Hey Kit, What is your trip plans going back East accross the Northern States?
Have you ever watched the TV show Lost? I really do not know, I do not plan a trip I just go. Wherever I end up is fine. I had not really planned on the northern states, other than a brief visit in Conn to see my youngest son. Mainly from yellowstone drop down some and take old route 66 across part of the midwest then back up to Conn and over to the east coast and down.

Hard to tell, I just go. No set route, or agenda. That kinda takes the fun out of it.

Looked at it longingly as I left it locked up in work and walked home.
We are getting the front of the house block paved so I can get it in.
Builders were rained off today though :-(

Checked the spark plug color. I have been playing with a single carb setup. They look great after 800 mles.

All I did today was look and see if it was still sitting pretty in the garage. But YESTERDAY - my first ride since I bought it in December (no test ride, just listened to it inside a garage for a couple of minutes). I spent the winter doing all the maintenance stuff that many of you have recommended using info from here and GS's how-tos. What a blast and nothing leaked or seized all the better :applause:

Believe it or not, I finally took my 1st ride of the year that was further than around the block. But first I had to finish up the new radio install and speedo-cable, two new tires/wheel bearings and steering head bearings. I did get in a run to the parts store for some paint to match-up the replacement chin-cowl that I trashed while riding over a trash can last October.



Some day I'll get some heat in the garage and do this stuff over the winter. :?



To anyone that remembers the post, a few guys thought I was being paranoid and that the cans probably fell off some-ones truck. Well the township police chief spotted some kids running away after he swerved to miss a few cans a few days later. He tracked them down and gave the kids and parents quite a scare.



I only found this out last month when he stopped in to use our range for some target practice. My gun-club is located in his township... :gunhead:

Yesterday I put the new CT on the rear and rode it.

Today I put gas in and rode some more.

Tomorrow....looks like the weather will put plans on hold. :sadguy:

Wanted to make her extra purty for Sundays Spring Run (a little putt with a thousand of my closest personal friends) so... I thought I'd do my own comparison of the often recommended Lemon Pledge Vs Pro Honda Spray Cleaner and Polish (which has already put Plexus to shame). Won't bore you with my findings, just be careful not to look at her in direct sunlight :)

Heading down to West Point for the open house for vets. Might be my last chance to watch "The Long Gray Line". Since I'll be departing before 0500 (Sat.), I topped the tank with my gas can, checked/packed a few items, programmed the GPS, and put the cover back on since we have no garage.

This evening I changed the oil, washed the pollen off, and cleaned the windshield getting ready to ride tomorrow. Calling for temps in the 70's/80's so I don't want to miss out. :)
