The mileage on my 700S is, well...I top off on every ride and fill it when I'm showing 1/4 tank if it's a longer ride. And I haven't run out yet.

This has become a running joke in our house. More than once I have been asked "What are you thinking about? You seem deep in thought..."  And I have to be honest and, well, yeah  o~`o

I've ridden the Voyager to work the last couple days.  Forgot how good the wind protection is on that thing, it's almost too hot to ride.  The bike definitely doesn't meed much mechanically, still runs smooth and pretty quick for a big touring rig.  Needs some cosmetic help is all.

Yeah, we're right in the middle of it -  there are parties all over the place here and lots of people taking Monday off.  I'll be at work as usual - got to save the days off for the doc appointments and such.
Yep - Big fairing = Big Difference
Since it's running well, it would also look lots better with a repaired seat... and it would probably be more comfortable too..
As for the eclipse, at least take a two minute break when it gets as dark as midnight somewhere between 2:30 and 2:45 on Monday.
Just because it's local doesn't mean it isn't special. 
With the sun completely covered, you don't even need glasses (not true when there is ANY sunlight showing)... Then you NEED them.
Out West, there are journeys of epic proportions taking place to see it, and I wish I could, but I can't, so I won't...

Poor me... Poor me...

I adjusted my soft saddle bags and noticed that I melted the plastic on the bottom of both sides  bh1

Nice! I'd really like to scramblerize my 2000. Even better that you actually hit some dirt with it. :clap:

That Viffer is (was) sweet! I have an 'inception year' (1983) VF750F Interceptor with 6k on the clock as a project bike, but it's pretty much stalled on the back burner. Work has been too hectic and unpredictable since my job change 3 years ago. But I know it's always there. nice1
Aye Captain!
It sounds like a worthwhile project... Super low mileage too..
That's promising... Mine was under 4K but still started as a basket case (it probably needed a valve adjustment  whoohoo1 )
Actually, the prior owner did 95 % of the work, (and dropped a truckload of dollars into it) but when reassembled the intake and overflow hoses were switched, so as soon as it warmed up, coolant would spew out all over the place.
The prior owner didn't "remember" to mention this issue and my guess is he thought the bike had a major problem, so I got it cheap.
My major fix was switching the two hoses.
I managed to get the few pieces I needed from Bike Bandit, but not cheap..
Anyway, good luck when you get back to that '83!

I wish.  The ST site has a couple of rides set up to watch the eclipse from different locations.  Unfortunately, my wife has health issues, and for the most part, the only riding I get anymore is back and forth to work.  Considering selling the bikes as they're hardly getting any miles.  I originally traded a Concours for the Voyager, hoping it would enable her to ride, but that hasn't happened, and doesn't look promising.
So sorry to hear that...  I'd put a few dollars into the Voyager before trying to sell it, if it were mine.
If you sell both, your going to miss the two wheeled option... IMHO

As far as the eclipse, it's probably the last total either of us will get a chance to see.
In my case, it's over 1,000 miles and travel across several states to get there.
If I recall, you're in South Carolina somewhere, so you might be able to be in the total path by

You're in central South Carolina according to your profile, so you won't have much (or any) of a commute...
Here's the map from NASA.. Scroll down and there is one for S Ca..

Even if you do have to drive, take the day off on Monday, put your wife and a picnic lunch in the "family truckster" and go make a memory....
