Motorcycle Weekend – Myrtle Beach and Wright Brothers

I spent the weekend riding the motorcycle to Myrtle Beach SC to spend some time with my sister Amanda. I took a route directly to her place, but today took a pretty long road home to visit the Wright Brothers National Memorial and tour some scenic NC coast.

The bridges were awesome to cross. The burned swamp land was breath taking and went on for miles. There were some SERIOUSLY deserted places out there.

A 733 mile shakedown run on the bike, new seat, and new shoulder. Everything works pretty well so I’d say I’m prepared for Tail of The Dragon next Friday.

The new seat lowers me (good) and cramps my legs a bit (bad), but I get used to that. My butt isn’t AS sore as it used to be with the old seat, but sit in the saddle for a 12 hour day and comfort is relative.

The new shoulder works perfectly with no complaints (as long as the weather is nice).
