Starting maint. for TDA (tour de fl)

Tomorrow I start preparing KLaspeR for the trip to FL. I did the front wheel bearings last week, so that is out of the way. I'll put my rear wheel on that has the stock tire on it, (the one with the Kenda 270 stays home) oil and filter change tomorrow. I'll also clean and oil the air filter tomorrow. I'll check the wheel bearings in the spare wheel I'm putting on tomorrow, alnog with checking all the bolts and screws to make sure they are all tight.

The plan is to leave Middlesboro on the 8th headed for Veince FL. Arriving in Veince on the 9th. We (my younger brother is going with me) will spend the 10 with our older brother. He is going to take us on a boat ride up the gulf coast, stopping at one of the crab shacks for a meal. On the 11th we will head towards Tallahassee to meet up with all the guys and gals at TDT.

We will have to spoon some tires on my brothers DR650 for the trip, along with the normal oil/filter change and the bolt and screw checks. I hope his heated grips come by Sat so we can get them installed on his bike before we head south.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
