First Long Ride

Well due to work was able to ride mine instead of flying and renting a car. The trip took two weeks and covered 2911 miles and in that time only one day with rain. Trip started on the coast of Maryland,, to NY, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. When in Maine got to the one four corner posts and yep the Caribu HD dealer had the biggest sign sponsoring the location. The RGU ran just fine. I had the normal,, spitting of the first 1/2 quart of oil via the air cleaner then nothing after.

Its normal for them to spit out 1/2 quart of oil out the AC on a trip?
