The days draw nearer. I spent the last couple of weeks getting work projects out of the way, so had to postpone the trip a week. While everyone goes to work this coming monday AM, I will leaving on my trip. With that, I've got to get the WRR trip prepped. Changed the oil, cleaned the air filter, bolt the stock exhaust back on since its got the heat shield. After switching back to stock pipe. Its remarkable how much quieter the bike is. I forgot after having the FMF for so long. The FMF isn't loud, its sounds really nice actually, just racier.
Also wanted to report that I'm happy to have gone with the 13/48. I was able to test last weekend at the Hancock Quarry Run in the tough hero sections and it allowed to crawl a little better, but more importantly to go down steep hills at comfortable speeds.
