D-Day (?)

D-Day. I can’t get out of bed, eyes look like red coals, fever, coughing. This is not good. Nothing to do but stay in bed and hope for a quick recovery.

I was planning on taking the long way to Yuma, our meeting place, and take two days to get there. Now if I feel better tomorrow I will have to do it in one shot, 400 miles. Not bad if you feel okay, not sure how this will go in my condition....

I can give you a little background about my bike. It is a ‘97 F650 Classic, 52000 miles. I bought it with 21000 miles on it. Removed the lowering links and got it back to stock height.

Pretty much stock with some farkles such as:
7.7 gallon Acerbis fuel tank
Happy Trails pannier racks
Wolfman expedition panniers
Heated grips (Oxford)
Giant Loop tankbag
Bill Mayer seat
Bi-Xenon headlamp
LED running lights
Garmin 2820 Streetpilot GPS
SPOT Satellite Tracker
Ducati mirrors

Sorry, ride report is getting off to a slow start. Hope to have some miles down tomorrow, your going to have to wait and see.
