 Post subject: ATTEMPTED Ride From SoCal To Seattle Con :( NEVER MADE IT ):
PostPosted: Thu Jul 16, 2009 10:32 am 
Trying to get all the stuff I need to do a Ride from Los Angeles to Seattle.

Just got a tent, sleeping bag (Rated for 50 degrees)
Still need Saddle Bags, Extra Gas Container & New Rear Tire!

Anyone else going to ride up WAN Style??? Riding & Camping off the beaten path???
What would be the safest route?
Planning on leaving the Tuesday Before CON.

BUT

Got some major deadlines at work that I have to finish!
Got a Mystery Squeak this morning on my Ruck-U??? (Water pump bearing might going out)
Got to get some balls to do it......Never rode that far on a Scoot!
I already Emailed Wan on "How You Do It?"
His reply........JUST DO IT!

-Honestly Freaking Out & I haven't even left!

How does one go about finding Distance between Gas Stations along interstate 5?
I know they have signs....but do they say......the next 200 miles???
If so, I need to carry extra gas. :shock:

Oya have a mystery bearing making noise on my Ruck-U250? List of suspects
• Swing Arm bearing....Took it out, had a bit of a tic...replaced, drove off.... squeak again?
• Water Pump bearing
• Crank bearing
• Or Possible Chain Tensioner problem??? I know it is almost fully extended....like 3 notches to Max out?

My $$$$ is on the water pump.

-Honest...kinda nervous/kinda excited
