My Roadtrip

just completed a 4 day 1,880 mile trip. Live near St. Louis and had too run back to hometown in Dover PA to say my last goodbye to a friend. Made the return trip in 16 hours (850 miles) straight through. All highway riding, but had to get there and back in short time..Had fun though (short of the reason for the run), first time I have done 850 miles in a single sitting.

Took pix of the fairing and shield, just to think those bugs used to be plastered to me..I'll post pics as soon as I figure out how to on this site.

Sorry for your loss but glad you had a good trip. How was the exhaust on the long haul?

Thanks, have fun cleaning the front lol. My last day over 500 miles my bike looked the same way, lol.

Went to Walmart and they sell a Mothers brand bug remover that worked like a charm, just don't spray it on and let it sit out in the sun.

Boy, this is a lot of bugs. I would soak it with a very wet towel to help soften the bugs a little.

Sorry for the reason but you're a good friend to do it.

If you can do 850 you can do 1000. Start considering the Ironbutt Association. You'll get addicted to it.

Quite an accomplishment both in miles ridden and bugs slaughtered. The kind of ride that makes the Glide legendary. Sorry for your loss.
