[QUOTE=Kbetts;5809219]

I also recommend a poly net seat cover $10 from Amazon. It allows extra cushion and tons of air to get between you and the seat. So much air that I have to take it off on winter rides. No more Monkey Butt. The come from southeast Asia where humidity and heat are a nightmare. Best $10 I ever spent on a motorcycle.

I'll agree with this. I use a Bead Rider seat cover. Think taxi drivers' beaded seat covers. Suprisingly comfortable for wooden beads.

Did few thousand miles through the Southwest 6-7 years ago on 04 883. Race tech suspension, extra qt fuel bottle, new tires before leaving, camped out a lot. Windshield is a must....plan tour day route and write in the inside of the windshield with dry erase marker. Erase and update as needed, eliminates fumbling with maps or trying to read a map fine print through the tank bag plastic.

Yeah Me and two friends had planned a trip to Atlanticade this month on Prince Edward Island. Plan was to take the ferry from Bar Harbor to Nova Scotia, ride the coast and the Cabot Trail then ferry to PEI.

Closed border killed that idea and from online comments I have read, many Canadians don't WANT us there.

Word of caution. Rt 1 in ME has some very slow moving congested areas. 4 to 5 hours to go a 100 miles at times. It is a coastal road but in many areas it is far inland due to the salt marshes so the ocean isn't really visible.

As you say, next year!

Jim
