If everything goes well I should be taking Val on her first two day ride with a night in unfamiliar surroundings. I thought it was about time to put on the screen and leather panniers in preparation for next weeks ride. I rode Val today to pickup some components and also to do a quote on some Motorhome wiring in Northgate. :moped: :moped: :good:

It’ll be fine. Just let her know you’ll be close by when tucking her in for the night.

Life seems to get in the way unfortunately Darrell. I tried to get my wife Ruth to come along ( more than likely I would of ended up riding in the Outback (Subaru)) but she wouldn’t/ couldn’t take the two days off midweek. One advantage of being self employed and having a couple of dollars in the bank atm.
I cant believe this is my first overnighter since Yamba in Feb 2016. :doh:

lol. I didn't mean to sound accusatory - just pokin' at you, Tony. I absolutely love touring on the Valk - more so than any bike I've ever owned. In the three years I've had mine, I've logged just at 28k miles. Also, I just looked at my files and see that there have been nine overnighters, three of which were over 500 miles, two over 1000 and three were over 2000 miles.

Truly, a machine that carries on Honda's fine tradition of building mile munchers. Heck, one of my Valk riding buddies (sold a '98 he put 152k miles on and bought another '97) laughed at me for checking my oil once...

I have only put 6K klms on Val in 2 years. :doh:
The good news is at least I have only to replace my first rear tyre after this trip. :yes:

I'm getting great mileage out of the Avon Cobras running 40/42 psi (sorry for the imperial measurements). They impressed me enough that I got another set. Toyed with the notion of darksiding it, but decided not.

Enjoy the trip!
