I was happy to sweep at a snails pace. The old xr seems to leak oil and fuel when you loop her out. No matter. It probably needs a joe outboard motor catch can. All the same, great ride.

24 hours

I am happy to ride for 24hours but I don't thing drinking on the way would prove much. If you have seen you mob after a few beers the mind boggles. I prefer to just stay sober and laugh at Craig.
