Yeah, I already have a trip planned up the east coast to Maine next month.
The bike seems to be ready to go. The drive line does whine quite a bit, though. Hopefully just the chain/wheel alignment.

Just got my first Vstrom today. I've wanted one of these for over 10 years. Finally got one. It's a 2006 650 with 28k miles. It is so comfortable. I am totally ditching my car.

Water injection might actually be useful in an aircooled engine, as it reduces combustion chamber temperatures, prevents knocking, and even gives it a nice steam cleaning. :D

I'm thinking, If I go carless, I might have to stop eating eggs. I think the vibrations from the Harley's engine, alone, would break them. Or maybe I can just get some chickens.

I have no problem getting my Harley muddy and dusty. It's just that it already scrapes the frame going over speed bumps, and the tires suck on anything worse than gravel.

I rode a friend's Vulcan Nomad one time, and I thought it was the most comfy bike I ever rode. Like riding a La-Z-Boy down the road. Still, I prefer a smaller, more nimble ride.

Clutch in and ignore the engine bouncing off the rev limiter.
It shouldn't be so tight that you can't twist the throttle back, either. Just tight enough to hold the return spring.
