I thoroughly enjoyed the last Quota rally I went to, Death Valley sounds cool after spending three weeks in Palmdale, CA.

Hope that you can make it Matt!

Death Valley should be tolerable by late October.

Definition of QUOTA

1: a proportional part or share; especially : the share or proportion assigned to each in a division or to each member of a body
2: the number or amount constituting a proportional share
3: a fixed number or percentage of minority group members or women needed to meet the requirements of affirmative action

What a strange name for a motorcycle, it must mean something else in italian...

From Bayblon Translation, Itialian to English...

n. quota, share, fee; altitude, height; installment, instalment; portion, amount; price, dues

That makes more sense.

Anyhow, I'm set to buy the black one in Arizona, fly & ride back to Ohio the week of the 18th. I'm packing up my gear & UPSing it out there so I don't have to deal with bag check, just thinking about what tools I need to pack.

Stuff I would normaly take on a trip such as this...

Tube, Irons, Pump
8,10,12,13,14mm wrenches & or sockets
Metric allens, - What sizes for a goose?
Multimeter
Proper size wrenches to pull the wheels?
Small assortment of fasteners, tape & such...

Is it Greg's bike that you bought? I'll take a better look at a bike today, but I think the hex heads that you want are 4,5,6,10.

I'll double check and also let you know what is needed for the axle nut.

I've found it great when Quotas travel in pairs. I'm right next to Arizona. Ever thought of having a friend buy the Quota that I have for sale? You could then both ride back home together. It would be the best ride you guys will have had this fall!

Congratulations on your new bike. If you enjoy it just half as much as I enjoy riding a Quota, you will be very happy!

Any chance that your trip out west will coincide with the Quota/Stelvio gathering in Death Valley? Just a couple of weeks away now. Info is a few posts up.

I'm buying Ricks bike...

I would love to be able to stay out west for a while, but I used most of my vacation time riding already...

So I've only got 4 days to fly out & get back home.

I'm not going to make it...currently in San Bernardino for another week or so and I spent most of August in Palmdale. I need to spend some time at home.

Have fun!
