Oh well I baptised the left side of my bike! Thats what happens when you have a 28" inseam on the right leg and a 27 1/4" inseam on the left (J4S confirmed this is due to a past femur fracture) and you need a 34"inseam to reach the ground! My dismount rated at least a 9.9 based on Olympic scoring.. Rode home on all back roads. Great meeting everyone and I am looking forward to riding with you all again.

Oh I do love how you think. Some could have said that you batised your new bike. You, however, have much more ambitious goals for the GS--one side down--5 to go!

Made it to Chicago safe and sound. Found out that I needed the practice of a 800 mile day. Throttle lock worked well but I wish I had a real cruise control.

Glad you made it safe. I you can find a Audiovox CCS-100 cruise still floating around (out of production) they work fine even on a CAN-Bus bike.

Garmin has a new Zumo on the way if anyone was about to pull the trigger(like me cause my 550 is acting flaky). Looks promising with Lifetime Map upgrades Zumo 350LM.

Left the house @8 went by the way of Morton's to have Stewart look at the oil leak/set up apt for fix. Stopped for Lunch/Gas and Dinner/Gas and got into Chicago about 11Pm and promptly got to practice my slow riding skills. Being stuck in crawling traffic after 800 miles SUCKS.

There is a bolt with a crush washer by the cam/chain tensioner that is most likely the cause.

If you find one I'll buy it from you. I'll even help you install it.
