The new tires are ordered (decided on Motoz Tractionators). The bike is in the shop for 11,000 mile maintenance and ECM replacement (Suzuki recall). New fluids all around, thorough chain and engine inspection. I will add electrical connection for heated jacket liner and Rotopax spare gas tank.
A few mail order items are being exchanged for a better fit. All should be here for an on time departure. I enjoyed a call today with my friend in Vashon, WA. Looking forward to a friendly faces at the end of the trip – and possibly crossing paths between Sturgis and Glacier on the front side of the trip.
Next week is my last week of contract work. Then attending the wedding of my oldest son, a few wees in Croatia, watching the World Cup final with Atlanta United at Mercedes Benz Stadium, then kickstand up on my way to Alaska.
