Wow, good on you.
In fact I was thinking and analyzing how everything works and is inter-related just as Robert Pirsig talks about during my ride, sort of like how he talks about on the trip with his son. I too know just about every nut and bolt on my bike so it gave the ride sort of a more intimate feel knowing that my machine and I had been through a lot of man hours and new parts which culminated in this trip, a first of many together. In total I rode 2,571 miles. That was a good bit on 'bonding' time together!
Pre subscribed. Looking forward to the read and pictaaaaars. Also getting pumped up for a flight on the 17th.
