I'm on my way up to AK from San Jose CA. Currently I'm in Seattle.
The plan is to take two weeks up and two weeks down averaging about 300miles a day. I'll get online at public libraries when I get the chance.
I'm riding up on a SYM Symba. The first three days has been a trial by fire for the bike cause I only was able to put down about 72 break-in miles.
First day was a late start. Got in about 250 miles. Did the second oil change around 320 miles in Chico. Camped out just past Chico.
Here I am all loaded up ready to go
Second day was a long one rode over 450 miles. Camped just past Bend OR. Did the third oil change around 650 miles in Klamath Falls.
Third day had a little drama and what was supposed to be a 300mile day turns into a 450+ mile day.
Just before Mt.Hood
Got stuck in the snow and had to find another way around. This was around the Mt. Rainier & St. Helens area. My feet got soaking wet from tramping in the snow. Rested my feet against the engine to keep them warm and dry them out.
Around this time I started to notice the bike making funny noises When I shifted.
A much deserved rest day in Seattle after two long days. I did break in maintenence on the bike today and now it runs smoother and quieter..no more funny noises. Currently have over 1300 miles on it now.
