Woke up to rain this morning. After a quick breakfast we headed up to register for the event. Got my badge so I’m now official.
After this I went through the motorcycle inspection process. It was quite thorough this year. Which was good to see they were so particular. A couple of issues were discovered. It’s a good!
One of the items the inspection team notices was my floorboard mounting stud was loose. I knew this might be an issue so I had some extras with me to replace.
We had the option to do a practice ride to familiarize yourself with the paper route map navigation system. I did this in the light rain. Was good to see how the brakes operate when wet. All good!
Had a nice 20 mile ride. After that was hanging out in the parking lot meeting and greeting old and new friends. A lot of work on motorcycles is still taking place one day before the official start. Tomorrow there may be a few who do not finish the 20 mile prologue.
Loaded the bike back into the awesome support truck JR is supplying. Dinner and a good rest.
More updates tomorrow! Thanks for following.
