Hope to take a longish ride Thursday

I haven't taken the Versys for a ride longer than an hour or so since the toddler takes up my free time. Riding it to work 40 miles away has been my best opportunity for riding.

Anyway, I'm taking off Thursday and plan to leave about 4:30am from NW of Baltimore and ride SW some hundreds of miles (as my wife would say--until I'm 1/2 tired), getting back the same day.

All my LD riding has been on my previous 99 and 05 Harley Electra Glides, so this will be a change.

I broke the rules and made some last minute mods, like hanging a Formotion 12V socket from the bolt near the helmet lock. I wanted to be able to charge my Cardo Q2 Bluetooth when parked. I put the Gerbing heated innersoles in my boots, but will bring their socks that I used to use since I haven't tried the innersoles before.

I haven't programmed a route into the GPS, but I plan to hit a few towns along I-81 named New Market in different states. (I needed theme besides up and back.)

It'll be 37 degrees in the morning, and there will possibly be some showers later. I'll let you know how it goes.
