Planning a trip
 
2 Attachment(s)
I had been riding for about 22 years clocking about 250,000 miles before moving back to Canada ... Saskatchewan 14 years ago. I sold my bike when I moved back to Canada since there just isn't any good riding around Regina where I live. I bought my S4RS to start riding again. So on July 18 I am leaving to go on a 3,000 mile ride marking a 25th anniversary of riding with a group of guys during the third week of July each year. My bike is ready for the trip. I have been through everything on the bike. Valves, belts, fluids, rebuilt shock, fork service .... everything. The one thing I am not sure of is the clutch plates. What do you think? I will put on another 500 miles before I leave. Are these plates fine for say 4,000 miles? I am not hard on a clutch. We will be doing spirited riding through Montana, Oregon and California.

I'd say they are just fine. Have a great trip! :)

What he said ^^^ but its a dry clutch so if you're concerned throw some new frictions in your bag and if you have any issues replace the old ones. Totally a roadside job if things go completely sideways. Sounds like an awesome trip; I was about to do a cross country trip with a buddy of mine. Combination training for work and the ride was going to be too long away from home to make it work. Good luck and have fun.

Yep.
Glacier National park is nice that time of year. Crossing at Carway used to be easy. Safe/fun ride!
