 Post subject: Kroon's "Fuck it we'll do it live" Road Trip
PostPosted: Tue May 28, 2013 12:11 pm 
So i've always wanted a Big Ruckus, much like my love for the little ruckus was purchased in less than 24 hours because i had a "fuck it, i want one and i'm gonna buy one" moment.

So when i found a 2006 Big Ruckus with 700 miles on it for sale in TX for $4300 i said "Fuck it, lets do it" I spoke to the owner of the tiny dealership and secured the bike. Then bought a one way ticket to Austin this thursday. The plan is to Fly out thursday AM with my riding gear and spare parts i ordered, pick up the bike stock up with a tank bag at a motorcycle gear shop and walmart and roll.

My current plan it to hit roswell and whitesands since....why not?

I took thursday-monday off work so the distance getting it home shouldn't be a big deal. :banger:

So this is the proposed route as of now. Taking back country roads to Roswell NM


Image

Then I'm still undecided about taking the I10 or taking the north route back to Phoenix. I plan on hitting whitesands on the way back either way.

Image

Tonight i pack up The Air Filter,new belt, new spark plug, a changeish of clothes and a the new U-Lock i picked up, I plan on picking up a small toolkit and other tools once i get into Austin. I checked and cycle gear and Walmart are both within a 3 mile radius of the dealership. Here is the list of things to pick up i've been making on my phone.

-12v Cig adaptor
-Tank/trunk bag
-Bungee cords
-Metric Socket set
-Folding knife
-Leatherman
-Front Disk lock
-Zip ties
-Bandana
-tire repair kit/pocket inflator
-Gas can (1 gallon to strap above the headlights)
-chapstick
-Water
-Road snacks

Find an autozone to change my oil/spark plug at then find a motel that won't notice i rolled the bike into the room, Go out drinking thursday night or just head out then.

That is my only real concern. I know it has a TX temp plate on it atm. Worst case i can get an AZ temp plate for like...$5.

I'm sure both of them are not meant for interstate travel :wc_flag:

Edit- Looks like the Arizona 30-day use permit will cover me for pretty much anything and it's only $15 :banger:

Picked up the bike riding around a little subdivision found a little creek, good spot as any to figure out my next stop. Humidity is brutal, I hate my jacket a little more now.

Next stop cycle gear to get a tank bag and Walmart to get some road supplies.

Changed the oil at autozone, I think the dealership oil was still in it from 2006 haven't heard anything from the Austin boys so I think I'm going to head out.

Bike is running good even with the crazy crosswinds.
I have her tucked in for the night at a little motel just outside of a small town called Goldthwaite.

Headed to Roswell in the morning, I need to find somewhere I can buy a windshield from sometime tomorrow.
