    Yep Ker is correct and I missed that part in your original write up. The seal only seals with the back of the clutch basket torqued down

    So you have to choose whether to get wet in Texas or in Florida

    It's mostly the ride over to Florida I know it will rain along those gulf states in the spring. Fall is a better chance of less rain.

    Plus less people at biketoberfest than Daytona. Don't want to go there to sit in traffic

    You’re right. Daytona is sitting in the bar or traffic, or trying to get to a bar thru million people by foot on Main Street

    This will be my first event like this... I usually avoid large crowds. The draw for me is getting a chance to meet up with the guys on the forum.....see you all there!

    Sounds to me like ya don't like Daytona.
    Different strokes for different folks. I visit Main St. once during the day and then again that night, just to stand on a corner and watch the traffic for an hour or so and I'm good. No bars, waste of time and money. But I enjoy the total atmosphere around Daytona during that time and the rides up and down the coast is what WE like and that's all that really matters to me is the R&R that we get when we're there and its easy to rack up 3-500 miles on the bike when we're there.

    By the way Gil, don't listen to Dent [​IMG]about parking,:oldlaugh: it was $7 last time, but look for the places that offer you return parking for the whole day.:old2: Be careful if you drink cause when you leave the secure parking they stop you at the exit to check your ticket so it matches your bike, along with a little chat with you.

    I like Daytona OK, not just my favorite rally. I think it’s somewhat overrated and the hotel prices are just robbery. Sure living in Florida makes it different for me. Last 2 times I basically went there just for lunch and took off to ride around northern Florida. ..

    I like Butt fuk! You are right though, 400 a night for a 100 room kind of spoils it for me. (Not the butt fuk part)

    Holy Moly $400 a night. I'm at $150/night, King bed, ocean front with kitchen and that's more than the usual place I stay at because the regular condo had water damage.

    Where you stay? Last I looked on the beach close to Main Street, expensive spot allright. But figured if I want to go to bar to have a beer or listen some music say on Bank I wouldn’t need to ride....

    Curious, the prices have gone down since I last looked
