I've since filled the tank with Sunoco Ultra 93, lubed the chain and cleaned the air filter, so it should be ready to go. We're to get 2 or 3 inches of rain by Thursday evening, followed by a 30% chance of showers Friday through Sunday, so it could be a little moist in Michaux. If it's not a complete washout, I'm planning on riding Friday, Saturday and Sunday, if anyone is interested in joining in on the mud slinging, let me know and we can set up a place and time to meet.
looks like the sky should clear for the weekend- I can handle the 40's if it ain't wetting. Just put a new clutch in my large girl, and it feels a bit draggy. A good long ride might restore the smooth shifting I had. If I can pick up a few adventurers between here (south Lancaster county) and Michaux, maybe we could meet up near Gettysburg. You are west of Hbg, correct? I had a truck go down at work this week, should have it's replacement on line by sat morning. That would hopefully give me all day Sunday, if anyone is up for some fun.
