Took the old girl out for a Run up to Toronto, good test of the rebuilt final drive. Thanks Curtis (CharlieVT) the rebuilt drive performed like a champ, and the rear end didn't fall off so I figure I got it all put together right
It's been a few years since I spent 10 hours in the saddle, 11 counting the time I spent in line to cross the border. The first 6 hours were pretty good, I generally keep the seat in the high position, some time during hour 7 I decided I needed a change so I switched the seat to the low seat position, it was better on my bumm but after a couple hours I was feeling it in my knees and hips. Must remember to stretch before the return trip. I have an Airhawk I deliberately avoided for the run up because I wanted to see how well the stock seat was. I'll try the Airhawk on the return trip, riding to Kent Oh on Thursday, then back to Bloomington, IN on Friday afternoon.
