Shin Dig preparedness....

Things to keep in mind.
I am looking over my bike tonight and figuring out how to pack and performing maintenance.

Bike Preparedness...
Good oil for 2000+ more miles
New rear tire (to be installed Saturday-chain tension adjusted on re-install)
All signals, lights, etc working properly
All easily reached bolts and clamps tightened
Brake pads checked
Filters checked

Creature comforts...
Where are you sleeping?
Got a pillow?
Towel?
Are you gonna shower? (guys with hotel rooms might be nice and let campers in for a little bit)
What are you eating for non-cookout meals?
Beverages - water, gator aide, beer, tequila, etc...


---------------------------
Jetblast10 is contributing a lot of time, effort, and money into this. Be sure to be willing to help clean up and offer a hand whenever it is needed. I know JB would never ask this himself, but please understand the costs of pigs, port-O-lets and other little goodies add up. If you can make a donation toward the cause, I am positive it will be appreciated. (I used the Donate button in the top menu bar)

--------------------------

If you can think of anythign I am leaving out, post it up here. I certainly do not want to forget anything.

Good post, and great points to remember. For the ride down, as long as we stay dedicated to the goal, and prepare accordingly, this is going to be a ride to remember. Can't wait til the 16th!!

Edit, you're a lucky bastage BTW. My tire is on backorder 'til the 9th.

New rear Anakee installed. I got 8950 out of the original and believe i could have gotten 1000 more. But it would not have made the entire Florida trip.

So - tire on, chain adjusted.

I hate to sound like a broken record, but IF I can make it I plan on camping.

Plan on getting the Ventura rack put back on today and going over a few things.

I might be interested. It all depends, we don't want to miss out on any of the shin-dig happenings.

I think maybe Saturday should be reserved for everyone to hang out - don't you think? It is a long way to travel for people to be doing other things.

Saturday I plan to sit my ass down at the shin-dig, eat a lot of Puerco, yucan con mojito and moros... I may have a drink or two as well.

I am not taking my gun with me this time, I have been known to discharge my weapon when I am on a jungle

Oh, I have spoken to Jetblast10 inlaws and we'll be listening to Latin music... so, all of you Notherners better get ready to get your Salsa Dance on!
