Post 2005 Harleys gone injection ,,
Now days,, on the console top of the gas tank,,you turn the main key knob on,, then on your right handle ,,ignition commence switch down ,, wait for the engine light goes out in the speedometer,,then press the start switch next to the commence switch,, when she starts,,, due to engine being cold ,, first gear will not go in so easy ,,, you have to give it a quick and efficient kick down to engage or you will grind the gear,,,

Seouljoe......

You posted on a thread some time ago that nobody ever called in to see you when they shipped to Korea. Well... we leaving the UK this Sunday heading west to USA and then around mid may we will either ship Seattle to Vladivostok or maybe Vancouver to Korea instead then get ferry to Vlad. We had it mind to call you when in Korea and share a beer but it looks like you are running away from us and won't be there.

:( :( :(

Way Points
 
Took Colebatch's GDB way points and translated to KML for my Android phone.
2700 some way points but from 1300 is a repetition. Will delete all the camping sites and leave only benzine, motels, guest houses and cafes.
I am using GPS Essential APP and Google Navigation APP then Latitude APP so my family and friends can see, where I am at all times.
Only few more hours before I get on the plane,,,, I am pumped!

Sorry Joe, I missed your reply !

We will be heading South from Baltimore by end of this week into southern states and then west as far as LA then up highway 1 where we hope to fly the bikes from Vancouver to Busan - we have been in touch with Wendy Choi who we hope will sort us out in South Korea.

What is your route in the US ?
