Take your time going through and do not let anyone pressure you. look out for other vehicles that will cross the yellow line. Take your time and ride at your own pase, because others will pass you. I hope you have a great trip and be safe. Post some pics when ya get back.
Simply take it easy and don't ride over your head. It will take time to get a feel for the roads. Be sure your bike is in tip-top condition: tires, suspension, clutch, etc. Also watch for oncoming traffic diving in to your lane when coming around blind corners.
Have fun. Take it easy the first few times through. Be curtious to faster riders and make it easy and safe for them to pass. Make sure your chain is clean, lubed, and adjusted properly. Take pics, lots of pics.
BE CAREFUL. I can't say anything that hasn't been said already. Come on up guys. I think me and a friend are going to do a breakfast run Sat as do most of the locals. Enjoy and if you see a cranberry/black 06 solid wine helmet come over and say hey.

Man, your coming to my Backyard, and I don,t know what you,ve read, or been told, (which I,m sure is valuble info), but my advice is to just ride the first couple of passes slow and enjoyably, and take in the beautiful sights and veiws, and when you get to the store, and take a minute or two to reflect on the ride you have just encountered, decide then, how YOU want to ride the rest of the ride. I have riden the gap on MANY differant types of bike,s, and I LOVE my BUSA, but it is not the fastest of my stable, at the gap, but it is my favorite bike to take there. Just stay in YOUR limits and will have the ride of your life.
