A few hours later and presto...all ready and inspected for loose bolts. Just have to change the engine oil and rear differential oil. Also time for a visit to the dealer for the throttle body sync.




Gave the Daytona GTX boots a shine too while I was at it.
They survived the rain onslaught with not a leak. Super boots.

RsZk, or moonw5, how many miles did you ride on this trip? I'll never get up there, so between you and Anna, I'm enjoying BC and Alaska in the rainy season....tp

Who is this Anna you are talking about? I am assuming there is another RR posted? Would love to see the link.

I got the leaking minimized while travelling. I'm going thru all cases and using rubber O rings or silicone to eliminate leaks and potential leaks. Then I will test it with a garden hose.

Dirtdreamer,
Thank you for posting the thread to Anna's Adventure !!! Read it and was totally sucked in to "the adventure".
Could totally relate to her trip (or portions of it) !!!


It sucks now..... back to "regular life". Travelling seeing new sites and people can get addictive. Can't wait to travel again. Loved the coast, the ferry ride to Prince Rupert, and Hyder, Alaska. Ohhh yeah, the Fraser Valley by Lillooet was pretty incredible too !!

That's why we ride and read, to experience and share experiences. Really enjoyed this RR, too. Anna has slowed her posting rate, but when she posts, it is worth the read and the wait time. dd50

I never got any photos in Tofino, but Bullseye managed to get a few even with the downpour:
