DAY 7: Traveled 477km: I woke up early mooring and decided to ride North. I wasn't sure how far North I would go but that was the direction I was going. When I made my first stop I noticed that my bike was leaking oil from an air filter... I guess when it fell upside down a few days ago, the oil got into the air filter box. I cleaned it up a bit from the outside and hopefully it will be ok until I will get home to open it up and clean it all out.

I didn't have breakfast this morning so I decided to stop and make myself an early lunch :)

When I stopped for gas, I didn't notice that one of my straps fall onto my hot muffler and it burned off :( Luckily I had a few spare straps. Also you can see that for some reason my rear mud flap burned and melted a bit from all the high speed riding :(

I made it all the way to Campbell River, BC... I decided it was far enough and I needed to turn back around and start heading a long way home.

On my way back I took a faster route... it was a lot of nothing at 120 km/h... but I made a pretty good time :) Although because of the hight speed, and my scooter being loaded pretty heavy, and riding agains the wind.. my gas milage really suffered and I almost run out of gas.
