    17 days till my wife and I leave on our bikes to Sturgis. Not a big deal 17 days lots of time to do oil changes (all 3 oils) on her 00 Fatboy and my 03 FXST, new tires and brakes and anything else already done.
    But she just told me she is packed and ready to go.:bigsmiley11:

    That is so cool skywarrior the both of you riding out to Sturgis. I know two other guys from Florida that are heading up there also. You folks ride safe and bring us some pics back. Maybe even some video.

    TIP I'm sure you are not going to, but don't wait till last days to do services, maintenances and new tires. It is best to put some miles on the new parts, and make sure everything is working properly before you get on the road. Run those new tires up to highway speed and check for balance etc. Then you can relax and enjoy all 17 days in the wind. :bigsmiley11:
    Reread your post with different word emphasis, you've done brakes and tires.
