Northwest Events / Re: Three Pass Blast [WA] 7-21-2018

It was a good day to ride.  I think we actually bagged Cayuse on our way up to Chinook, so I think we can claim three passes.  After doing that ride I went down to Stevenson to get a head start on checking out some roads for the Volcano Ride in two weeks, so yesterday's mileage total for me was 490.

I spent the day checking out the roads up by Mt. Adams, and I have come to the conclusion that the ride will conclude in Trout Lake.  If anybody wants to brave the pavement past Mt. Adams I will be happy to tell them how to get there, but after stopping to pick up my cooler when it was bounced off my seat -twice- I'm not going back.

I dropped my 05 less than two blocks from the dealership the day I bought it.  I caught my left foot in the fairing as I was stopping and down she went. I considered selling the bike right then but didn't. Whenever I hit the highway I'm reminded of  what a great bike it is.
I'm 66 now and respect the weight of the bike but I can't imagine not having it.

Good Slow speed maneuvering is needed on this bike because of weight and top heaviness. As someone noted the rear brake is your friend and getting familiar with the friction point of the clutch.

Double face tape the post on the frame that the hole in that rubber bushing mounts. The PO might of replaced it when he lost it in the fairing, you could probably tell if you try lifting up on the front of the tank towards where the ignition key goes lifting side to side. If it doesn't have much wiggle room with no metal to metal sound then I would wait until the next time you have to remove the tank for something else.
BTW, Bergmen's quick tank release, if your bike doesn't have it already is the bomb, available from Murphskits.com.

Does it conform to shape ?

Hmmmm....

Humming?
Yes. It's actually coming together. May need a rear tire on the way, still trying to work that out. I have a nephew west of Sioux Falls to flop at on the way from Spider. Would likely stay in the Textile Hilton. Fixed income and all that, ya know.
