Here are a couple pics from my first adventures with Roxy.
My first long road trip with her was down to Austin for the McKinney Falls frozen butt hang. It was a long, cold 4 hour ride. I stopped halfway due to a sore bum and frozen hands, finally making it in after dark.
The seat definitely needs upgrading. Even with the padded cover I have for it riding over an hour at a time requires determination and mind over matter mentality.
I rewarded myself with a nice ribeye that first night. It got down pretty low, 22° I believe. Stayed plenty warm with my 20° UGQ quilt set.
Overall she did really well. I did start smelling burning coolant as I entered Austin. I put off dealing with it until the day I packed up and left. The reservoir was leaking from its connection nipple so I tried using a ziptie to tighten the hose around kt until I could get home to take it apart and properly fix it.
It didn't work. Had a significant amount of coolant blow down the right side on the way back, but made it home otherwise unscathed, where I took it apart and fixed correctly.
I also got my radio operator license plate in and mounted.
My most recent trip was down to Houston to the Huey's for a thru-hike of the LSHT. The thru-hike didn't happen, but had a good few days on the trail and nights in the hammock before riding back to Tyler.
Rolled over 2800 miles on the way back, putting the count at a little over 1500 miles since I bought her Thanksgiving weekend. Meaning I've put more miles on her in the last 2 months than she had since purchased new in 2013. Such a fun way to camp.
