    Been slowly working my way down the east coast from Mass to Georgia on this via state highways and what not.

    Slow work, but it's a blast. Only serious incident so far was eating the driveshaft in rural Pennsylvania which stranded me for 5 days, but there are enough tools in that black box to pull the bike apart, only had to borrow a jack.

    But yeah, that's my hack. Run her 4 seasons.

    Thanks Ryushin =)

    Ha, yep its an '89. Taking it down to give to a friend who's in college in Savannah. I really enjoyed it while I had it, she's been making her rounds through my group of friends, great machines - I was surprised by how much I liked it.

    Thanks for the luck, I'll need it, the gearbox is beginning to bleed out, which is alright cause I have a new one on a shelf at home, just gotta keep it together for the rest of the trip =P

    Right right, time to go scrounge some food and get back on the road!

    I've been a bit concerned about the flat rack you have behind the small of your back..........wouldn't want to get hit from behind, eh..........???
