Preparation Anticipation

It was finally time to actually embark on a southbound Moto-ride saddled up on a $500 machine that I salvaged from behind a friends barn. I recruited Julie to be the co-pilot on this adventure and navigate while I sing songs of joy inside my helmet visor.

In preparation it has taken several hundred hours of modifying and customizing the cockpit which has included, Larger gas tank, Highway Pegs, Custom Saddle, Saddle Panniers, Taller windshield, New heavy duty clutch, and finally a rebuild of the cylinder and piston rings.

This Preparation has in fact been a motorcycle maintenance course and I've learned the intricacies of this motorcycle in anticipation of this trip to Central and South America.
