July 14th

Arrived back in Portland last night and got to my house about midnight. Since I leased my house out. I sleep in my office area. Since I have been on the road it is fine with me!

Woke up at 6am....



Then Got to work. Lots of parts have arrived for the new F800GS. Normally it is great to farkle up a bike, but I have only a limited time and need to get it done.



First, I opened the New excel rims that Woodys Wheel works had made up, and headed over to Bauhausbeirs house (where my tire machine is spending the next few years. The work that they did looks great!







mounted the tires. Look you spend enough money and they give you a "free" hat and T-shirts!



Lots of errands today.... Did not get much done. But I big thank you to Dakez for getting this done



Simeon works for Latus Harley Davison in Gladstone Oregon. (call hime if you need a Harley 800-446-2525 Had tried to sell my Harley before I left on Craigslist and Flea market but everyone wanted it too cheap. Simeon said he would help me out. HE DID IT!!

Simeon texted me while I was waiting at Atlanta airport that they were signing papers! Another Big item off my List. Cannot thank Sim enough !!!

Did some banking!



and worked on the new bike.... Will be a few days of limited posts as I try to get the bike ready and set up before riding to Montana. More good stuff to come in this ride report

Nice to see you were able to get your Harley sold before you leave the U.S. A big way to go to Sim.

Have a great time on your ride to Westfest, it will be a good shakedown ride for your 800 and all the farkles you install.

Hello "Bug Sister

Big Thanks to Simeon He was greta it getting Latus Harley o sell it on consignment and get me what I wanted for the bike Really big relief to have it gone!

It will be a good shakedown ride on the 800! Just hope I can get everything all together, rewired, attached etc by Monday always seems to take longer than you think. Really going to focus on it for the next day or two. But have other things I must get done as well, and then there is socializing.... where does the time go?

Wise move Mark! I need to do that as well. I already tweaked my front rim when I was over in Enterprise for the Wallowa Valley gathering..

Not cheap, But from everything I heard they are weak rims and will get "tweaked" easily. Just trying to avoid issues while I am out in the middle of nowwhere

Also made the rear rim tubeless. They could not do the front due to the lack of the safety bead. So I am sticking with heavy duty tube.
