Count Down - National Rally - Sharkweek 2011

gone riding
Countdown thread? Alright lets make it like a roll call for attendees. Tell us what are your final preparations? Checklist? Did you test pack your stuff yet and if so take it for a spin around the block to make sure the load is balanced. Now go through all your stuff and see if you really need to bring every thing you packed. Service your bike. How is the rubber? Map out a route or use a GPS. Post a shot of your bike loaded with your gear.

See you there....

8 days to go

8 days to go....
Loaded 900 songs on my i-pod and road tested the holding capacity of velcro. Now need to find a little baggy for protection from the weather but probably won't need one

I won't get pumped until the weekend when I start sorting gear. Followed my route from Illinois to Gettysburg on Google Earth and it looks like nice rolling hills (once you get out of the 'corn belt') most of the way.

Are we there yet? Paint is not back from the painter. Dealer cleaned the bike while the tins are off off, because he knows it will never be that clean again. Left the Cee Bailey install kit, and X-trim fairing gasket in the glove box. Tequila Bars are back from the powder coatist and hanging in the garage. Been riding the tires off the Dyna. Hey, Are we there yet???

7 days

7 days to go...
traced the route out with google earth to help spot some of the turns at intersections and see what kind of traffic I can expect. I think I've adjusted my route a half dozen times now but I'll try to stay on as much slabs as I can to avoid traffic through towns. I have 10 hours of riding here to there so the only sightseeing will be from the saddle.

I've been on the road since Saturday. I'm going to do some more touring before heading for Pittsburgh. Before I left I dusted off my packing list, checked inventory, added new things and deleted things I don't need anymore. I'm going to do some camping, so I packed the tent and sleeping bags in a Seal Bag.
