Looks like I'll be leaving a day early to avoid the high temps coming...even if you are used to the higher temperatures, 110 is just a bit more than I care for!  On a slightly different note, does anyone else use Spotwalla for tracking?

I use Spotwalla on all my trips. I'll be setting my Spotwalla trip before I leave for Vermont.

Some do like Brick. Also, Nicky Zarras had another thread on the Forum where he is looking for input to do a review in the magazine. Might want to look for that one here http://ridemsta.com/mstaforums/general-discussion/spot-product-test/

Sigh...so the morning of departure and the Triumph decides to assert its "British-ness" and start leaking oil...

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.
