New Motor Miles

Our goal this weekend was to put 500 miles on my new Crossbones motorcycle so we made a trip on Saturday to one of my favorite riding destinations: Bad Brad's BBQ in Pawhuska, Oklahoma. (Most people give me a funny look when I tell them I'm going to Oklahoma for lunch). The food was great as always, but the ride back home was tiring with gusty winds and then rain in Ark City. On Sunday, I took a bonding solo rode out east on Highway 400 to finish racking up a total of 503 miles. Harley requires this break-in mileage on the new motor and now I can take her back into the dealership for a steering head adjustment and change of fluids. After this we'll be good for 5,000 miles.
