Here's my restored '67 Bridgestone 350.  I'm the first and only owner. 

Built back when each and every part of a motorcycle was styled to be attractive and visible, not covered up by plastic!

Larry, I would agree with you on waiting till the end of the trip but the bike is already apart so now it'd be infuriating to just put it back together without checking. And if they are out of spec I won't be able to live with myself if I don't fix it. Luckily the trip is somewhat flexible so if we leave Sunday or Monday it won't kill us other than shortening the trip a bit.

I took delivery of my new (0 miles) 2012 from my local dealer last week.  The only issue so far has been the fuel pump, which wouldn't even try to run when the dealer first put fuel in it.  I had a front TPMS low battery alarm on the first ride, but nothing since.  Tires look ok, brake and clutch fluid look good, so I'm going with it for now.  For your tank to be so rusty the storage conditions must have been terrible!
would suggest dumping the 6 year old tires,age is just as important as tread depth..

I don’t think Fred is selling the videos anymore, unless he changed his mind

They still seem to be available.

He’s still selling them, but once he’s out of stock, he won’t be producing anymore of them.

The color of the brake and clutch fluid doesn’t matter. It’s been exposed to athmosphere for 6 years. It has water in it, I guarantee it. It’s easy to change out and cheap. By not changing it, you’re risking your life, as well destruction of the ABS pump. They are about $1000 to replace.

Backfire tells you you have a spark, OK. It does not tell you about spark timing
or cam timing. If when it cranks it seems normal you have some compression. At
least you should be getting some fire. (MOB is right about starter fluid, don't go
over board with it) could you double check the primary wiring at the coils, black
wire is on the left coil, fires 1 & 4. Green is on the right coil firing 2 & 3.
