Road Trip!
Imported VTX into Canada.
Hoped to ride it at least part way home, but the rain in Great Falls turned into snow before the border.

Inspections

March 30 - completed R.I.V. & Gov't of Alberta inspections ... Both a Joke!
Ready to begin installations....

Experienced fairly significant wobble on decel from 45 mph down to 35 mph. Put in DynaBeads but no significant improvement.
JakeWilson replaced the tire immediately, but wobble prevailed.
Tightened Steering nut about 1/8 - 1/4 turn. Definite Improvement! Ordered steering stem bearings - not yet installed.

May 15, 2011
- Replaced rear shock bushings hoping it might help .... (1800 Tech Board)

14,200 Miles
First oil change with Shell Rotella T-6 Synthetic 5-40.
OEM Honda filter.
Checked & cleaned K&N air filter.
Hope this oil is everything it's cracked up to be. We'll see if there is any noticeable difference in shifting and running.
