We've just returned from PEI and Nova Scotia, 4300 miles or so round trip. No problems whatsoever with the bike, but I notice some misting at the oil pipes where they attach to the engine near the oil filter. And now that I think about it, I believe I had the same thing on a trip to the Grand Canyon last year. Long stretches at highway speeds, reckon?

Nice ride,,,,, a good long ride is usually good to completely heat the engine and oil, any moisture or condensation that may be in the crank case or oil will be boiled off eventually, which is a good thing.
I wonder if that is what you're seeing from the breather pipes as mist/steam after a good long run ?

Thanks, maybe so. I never see any misting in day in, day out riding. I'll not worry about it. Thanks again.
