I will be heading east this afternoon on I-40. Packed my golf clubs and a tiny cooler in the cabin with me. Luggage in the front. Still can go topless if desired.

6 hour drive is last max seat time I took and was not terribly comfortable. We shall see.

Next tee time will be to hit the links in Asheville this weekend.

So everyone be on the lookout for me and my red 75 (with backdated bumpers). I hope I won't be needing assistance. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/mueba.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/mueba.gif)

Wish me luck>

you should be fine if you did a pretrip inspeciton:
check the engine oil transmission fluid and brake fluid levels
check the alternator belt
check all lights and instruments
check tire condition and pressure and lug nut tightness
check swing arm and cv joint tightness
check shifter bushings and tightness
check battery cables and battery condition
check the brake pad thickness and free rotation of the wheels
check the accelerator and clutch cable condition

that should be it
