I pulled away from the curb at 6:26.

I had been there for over an hour.

The only other rider to show was a stranger on a full-dress 250 Rebel (Yes, that strange).

We did not have a party.

Not a drop since this morning, but I understand that you guys are just too geezerly to stand the strain of such a long trip. With its remote location, I had to ride an hour and a half to get there.

I think you could fight the ticket on a plated bike, but like you say, it's only 44 cents a month for the permit.

Sounds like a good procedure, but once I have it unbolted, I don't mind the small extra trouble of popping out the piston. Then I can wipe the cylinder, and change the 24 cent o-ring at the same time.

It happened to me twice, both on long, steep, slow downhill off-road rides. Both times it went suddenly.

I started flushing the fluid more often, and it hasn't happened since.

^^ This.

The fluid gets moisture in it. When the brakes get hot the moisture turns to steam, and causes brake fade. When the brakes cool, the steam condenses to liquid, and the brakes return.
