Since most of the troubles during the past trip came from the clip type chain master link, I decided to use a rivet link this time and I got a small press to be able to service it on the road. Also I got a portable tire inflator, to be able to adjust the air pressure to the road condition.
Since I heard good things about the Touratech fog lights, I decided to buy a set. Very expensive, at $450/set! Actually I received two Hella fog lights (a $100 value), and smart mounting kit. I paid $350 for the know-how. I hope it’s worth!
I also ordered a brand new Happy Trails rear rack, to replace the old one that failed several times, but unfortunately the manufacturer was out of stock. That means I saved $500 that I am going to spend on welding 🙂
That being said, Palomina looks ready, 36hrs before I have to deliver it to the shipping company. Which is quite an accomplishment!
