Break-in cruise. Starting mileage: 7394.
Left home at 7:40, clear skies, a full load on the bike. Stopped at the rest area at Turlock to re-arrange the load, things got a lot more comfortable after that.
Here it is at Turlock.
I have my sheepskin on the seat, it helps quite a bit.
Un-eventful ride, stopped every hour or so to stretch my legs and walk around a bit. I arrived at Yorba Linda at 16:30, mileage of 7827, 433 miles for the day. On day 2 , things get interesting.
