prep for long tour
I will be taking my longest tour on my o3gt later this summer. from midwest thru Canada, on to west coast, down to Mexico. have been reading all I can here looking for anything that could break or wear out so bike has as little problems as possible on the road. i have 18k on clock. will be doing hyperpro front and rear (anyone else have these on there bike?). just found quick disconnect fittings for gas tank i just ordered. fluids done, tires, plugs, brakes, etc.... have done many 3-4k trips, but this one will be 8-9k, and just making sure all bases have been covered. I try to do all my own work.
Also, I am still trying to tell what seat came with this bike, standard or comfort. Ordered beadrider due to reports on seats here, and not wanting to give up an ok seat. Would love to upgrade, but just not willing to hand over my seat pan and may get back something worse.
Great site just filled with all kinds of help. Unlike many other owners groups (cars bikes boats) you guys like to get your hands dirty, knowing it gets done right! Help with anything I may have missed or overlooked thanks in advanced.
