I used 303 waterproof spray on my tank panniers and it did a decent job........ still not 100% waterproof.


So it sounds like I could just stick with the Alice packs and store everthing in bags like I have been doing.

That would be my choice also for the 450. But since she should be a trailer Queen, I would think I would have a base camp Most of the time.

I have been thinking of what I am going to use on the 650L. I had a GL Mojavi on my xr400. It was a perfect size, not happy with not being waterproof.

hey SMIBs, keep your eye out over the next few days for RTWdoug passing through SMBville on his old Indian on way to the Cannonball Run ride

Theres about 75 bikes entered. Most of the guys have alot more $ than me, and have chase trucks, RV's, enclosed trailers with machine shops, etc.

Which is fine, but I figured since Cannonball Baker (who the run was named for) didnt have a chase truck, well, I probably dont need one either.

Besides, its supposed to be an adventure, right?

To make it a bit more of a challenge, I decided to ride 1200 miles to the start in NY, then home from CA, another 3k miles. The CB is 3800 miles.
So, about 8000 miles on an 84 year old bike.

theres more info on the route & stuff on the official website www.motorcyclecannonball.com

I'm planning on 5 weeks total, the CB itself is 17 days long.

The bike seems to be all ready, and I'm heading to NY tomorrow.
I hope to meet some of you guys along the route.

I'll have my spot tracker, link is here
http://spotwalla.com/tripViewer.php?...b4de3265776584

and heres the bike, pretty much all loaded & ready to go



I'll do my best to update from the road. but we all know how good I am at that......

Doug

Chub, A 118 chain is too long for the 14/52 sprocket combo.......I dropped it to a 116 link. I still adjusted it back just a little from were the 13/50 was. I think life is good.

If I have a BMW, a Honda, then add a girlie and a KTM I guess I will need to look at getting a pirate machine (need something to ride once a year to bike night. )

Orange oil change looks interesting. 2 oil filters and 2 screens. Good thing she's my mistress.........she's way too high maintenance to be a wife.
