And are you planning on staying in San Francisco, or going back to NJ? If going back to NJ you might want to up your mileage estimate a bit. Going straight through on the freeway is about 3K one way, add in detours and fun roads and it'll be more.
Not trying to discourage or anything of the sort, just trying to help out.
Thanks Zeke. 6k service is impractical to do it by myself considering the amount of things I have to carry.
I thought $205 is really good price be because NJ dealer quote me $350-$400, which is totally rip off.
I am not going to ride back, will have it shipped back from San Francisco to Hoboken. You are right, maybe I should stop at Vegas for 6k service.
You got any suggestion on the chain maintenance on the road?
Thanks for your help
