2 Months To Go

I have been riding the bike as often as I can to make sure it's running without any issues after taking it in for service in January.

On one of my typical weekend rides I ran over a small branch which kicked up off the front tire and hit the bottom of the engine. I took a look at the bottom of the engine to make sure I did not have any damage and found that there was no damage from the branch but I was leaking oil from my transmission.

The clutch cylinder was rebuilt in January so I took it back to Honda and they found the issue with the leak and fixed it after 2 separate visits.
Its now running like new again with no issues. I took the opportunity to purchase some additional items for the trip and tested them out over the weekend. I now have a duffel bag to pack my camping equipment and a new mount for my GPS.

The only thing left to do is to change the oil which I will complete in July.

I am ready to roll!
