My 99 Sprint ST has done that a couple times. First the fuel line couplers wore out with gas leaking all over days before a trip. Then last year the throttle cable broke, in both cases I wasn't leaving for the trip but taking the bike out to scrub in new tires.

Now I got it back from the shop after a check engine light issue was resolved, and then I had some trouble starting it after a ride on Sunday. Keeping my fingers crossed it doesn't act up during the trip. I spent a combined 3+ weeks on it riding out west for 2 STARs and it was fine. Maybe she's just getting old (43K miles).

I have used spotwalla on my last 2 big trips, with Bubbler app on the phone...(no SPOT-type sattelite device) ...Just gotta remember to turn on the Bubbler app every day, or nothing gets recorded!  Works good.  There is some tracking software on my new BMW Navigator V that I need to figure out that apparently does the same sort of thing.
