:thumbup:Buying a new camera for this trip in the morning. Bike goes into shop Friday for new shoes , front wheel bearing kit , plugs , brake pads all way around . Girl rolled over a 100 k about 2 weeks ago , so a little extra care for prevention won't hurt .

with 100k on odo, i would have an alternator lined up from someone that has a spare sitting around. Then if your alt goes out, they can overnight it to you and your back on the road next day.

I replaced my alternator with a brand new at 150,000 miles. The old one was working fine, but I replaced it just as a precaution. If yours goes out due to Kevin talking about it, I'll send you my spare. My cell is 409-728-0097.

Enjoy your trip. It sounds like a great time is about to be had.

Jimmy,

this time last year we were camping out at lake waurika in Ok. Why don't you just cancel the trip to the great northwest due to all the things that might go wrong and lets just mosey up to Oklahoma :shrug:
