Over the last few weeks I've been preparing my motorcycle for a long trip, making it more comfortable, adding luggage options, a case for camera gear, riding it, getting used to it, trying the various changes I made, going on a California, Oregon, Washington trip with Andrea in August, just before the fires broke out here. The bike has morphed quite a bit, from the day I picked it up: To how I rode it on the trip with Andrea: Here, I don't want to go into details, I have written about the various additions and changes I made over in the GS Boxers forum. The original bike felt (and was) smaller and lighter, but as it is today, it is much more comfortable and ready for the roughly 9000 miles I'm planning over the next weeks. I will try to write updates here, maybe not every day, but often enough, about where I am, where I'm headed and adding photos and stories about the journey. If you're interested, stay tuned.
