Prepping the Bike for the PCH

I'm getting the Super Tenere prepped for our trip out west to ride the Pacific Coast Highway. Today I replaced the crappy old 12v power outlet for a new dual USB port. I installed the mounting bracket and plate for my Shad top case on Friday. The last upgrade for now is a taller Givi windscreen for a some better weather protection. Last thing will be a fresh oil change and coolant check and she'll be all set to go!

I've been waiting to return to the PCH for a very long time. Did it many years ago in a car but since then I always told myself "I have to do this on a bike". Man, it's gonna be SO much fun!

Starting near Portland, heading south through California. Other than that, we have no set route or itinerary.

Just got home... A fantastic time. Rode somewhere in the neighborhood of 2200 miles, with the Super Tenere performing brilliantly. Great roads, spectacular scenery and near-perfect weather.

I'll post some pics later. I think I'll sleep for a couple of days first.
