Yes Fuzzy, I second Fastoman's sentiments.

For us Vx-300 owners, would you mind commenting on your breakdowns; i.e., headlight, chain and also your tire choice? You mentioned the headlight was an LED replacement...

Would also like to know about how you and your bike fared keeping up with the two Goldwings.

Thanks in advance.

What he said, why did that chain break? Bad luck, or flaw, or something else?

Been following on advrider, saw no specific explanation, but, might have missed it as well.

Hi again Fuzzy and happy to see you made it home after your excellent adventure. I sure enjoyed following your ride report - you put a lot of time and effort to keep everyone updated and pictures were fantastic.

I'm probably not the only one that would like to also hear your assessment of your Vx-300 - I know you mentioned that you're likely to do that - just hoping you'll post it here as well as the advrider site.

I'm curious to know things like your best distance on a tank of gas or if you ever ran dry, whether you ever dropped your bike, did it ever overheat or surprise you with some other fault/breakdown and whether you'd do another long excursion on a 300...

Anyway, glad you're home safe and once again, many thanks.

Hows the little V-300 keeping up with the bigger bikes?

Does it grunt and groan under the load?

Have fun.

Seemed like the goldwings had trouble keeping up with him, according to the accounts. Even more so on the rougher roads. Hope he'll post more on his trials and tribulations (besides his tires issues).

Wherever you go, there you are
