No the trip got truncated to an Oregon adventure for several reasons - but I'm glad it did. Eastern Oregon was some of the best riding I've ever done. Even got the V-Strom dirty a bunch. How was your B.C. adventure?
Alaska is next summer.
I'm selling my Bandit 1200 and probably going to put some of that money into tweaking the LC4. I'm trying to buy a set of supermoto wheels so that can become my day trip / canyon crashing bike [over the pig V-Strom]. I need to get the vibration under control though - I've very curious to try yours out with that lighter piston. Whenever it makes its way back here, I'd love to get together for a ride.
See you soon for more pizza & beer, perhaps.
