The day is finally here. I'm sitting at work (16:35 EST) finishing a few last minute details, but I hit the road in the morning. I think I've done all I can to the scoot to make it ready. I had the two front rotors replaced under warranty (warped). Had my clutch switch replaced under warranty (bike wouldn't start in gear - didn't recognize when the clutch was pulled in). I serviced the engine, trans, and primary. Changed my front brake master cylinder seal due to a leak. Had the dealer spend a little time while they had it to make sure I didn't have any other warranty issues (bad bearings, etc.). Brakes are all still like new at 10,500 miles. I've checked all the controls, checked the exhaust flanges to be sure they're tight, checked basically all fasteners. Tires and air pressure us all good. Pulled the stock rear shocks and installed some Progressive 944 Ultra Touring shocks and set the preload. Hell, I can't think of much I haven't checked on it. I even gave it a deep cleaning and nice polish so it's ready for some new road bugs.
I'll be on the road at 06:30 tomorrow morning to meet at my buddy's house. We should then be rolling by just after 07:00. Our first big stop is at Gateway H-D in St. Louis. He has a standing appointment to get the 1,000-mile service done on his new CVO Road Glide Ultra. Shop says that should take long. We are still planning to make Tulsa OK by end-of-day. I'll post updates and pics via Facebook during the trip, but probably won't be able to update this thread with everything until I return.
Remember: RIDE SAFE, RIDE HARD, RIDE FREE.
