Well not today, but tomorrow the tour screen goes back on and the tour pack removed for a 6 day 3,000 kilometre ride with a bunch of mates, a week on Sunday. Tossing up whether to connect my CB handset to the XCT. Its a stand alone from one of my other bikes, not the Victory CB. I have a 21 day ride coming up in. August (10,000 kilometres), the tour pack will be staying on but I am wondering whether to upgrade the sound system before that ride...

Added cruise control. Now I don’t have to miss it from my 2012 XR any more.

Yeah cruise control is a great thing. Beats the heck out of a throttle lock.

Yes, indeed. I didn’t realize how nice having it would be until I took my XR on a 3k mike road trip last year. It’s a godsend on long stretches of highway.

I cleaned it up (been raining and muddy here), and but the back wheel back in, with new rear brake pads (Lyndall racing), and a new Dunlop E4. The wheel has been back at the mob who applied the sealer to the spoked wheel, after a couple of spoke nipples and the valve stem developed a slow leak, and the old Dunlop E4 wore down enough on the RH side to start sliding on wet roads on right handers. There was still enough tread on the crown of the tyre to let me run a couple of thousand kilometres in a straight line, but the right flank was way down. I should have run out to Broken Hill down the dead straight Barrier Highway, but I spent the last 8000 kilometres going to work and back on mountain roads.
Put a new E4 on and fix the leaks in the sealer fellas, give me a ring when you're sure it doesn't leak.
