I’m sorry I have not had anything to post for over a month now. We have only been able to ride 2-3 times in the last month due to weather mostly, and also due to personal obligations on our off days. The days that we have been able to go ride, we haven’t really went anywhere worth taking pictures and telling about, we just hit the road for a few hours to get some riding in because we were going crazy from not being able to ride!
We are now 5 days out from the planned start of our trip. There is a chance we could end up leaving a day early if the weather looks like it may be bad on Wednesday, though, so we will see what happens.
I will be tracking our trip using the SpotWalla website and a Bubbler GPS app on my phone. I do this every year when we go, usually so our parents can track us and not freak out so much. The link if anyone wants to track us is here: https://spotwalla.com/tripViewer.php?id=109505728066f0e1a2
I had a friend of mine make some decals for my side cases with the Instagram logo and my screen name.
Tonight we are working on getting the bikes all washed up and the oil changed and ready to go. I am also going to install my new RAM Mount GoPro mounts on my bike so that they will be ready to go when we make it out to California. We also have some bar risers arriving tomorrow, which was a bit of a last minute decision, but we should be able to install them Sunday before work.
We ended up installing Puig touring screens on the bikes as well a couple of weeks ago, and we’ve been quite happy with those so far. They are much better than the stock screens. We also installed Triumph engine guards and tank pads a while back.
Make sure to follow along starting next week as I intend to update the blog each night with stories and pictures from our day. I also plan to upload pictures to Instagram daily as I have time, too.
