I must have ridden by your place Sunday though, about 1100ish I was heading down 208 after coming down via Hwy 70. I tried to figure out which drive was yours. I did notice one really steep one with a little switchback a few yards into it.

Thanks again for the offered hospitality.
good luck finding it . it took me 2 days to get it right, once ya see it you'll say how'd i miis that

Looks like I missed out!

Times and dates did not jive to allow me to get to your place. We rode straight through to the Dragon and camped there late. Sorry I missed out on your hospitality. Next time for sure.

hi roy, well to make a long story short it was initally the diode board. then the new one i bought was also bad, so after ripping the front cover on and off god knows how many times and finally getting all good parts in it, testing it and it was charging good and all buttoned up. i went to start it and nada, al looked down and i had forgot to tighten the ground cable at the tranny . bike purred like a kitten all the way home.

I didn't get the whole story.
It was great meeting you and the other Ohioans.

Dave didn't have as much luck though, huh?
Mine ran great too, almost 122 thousand on it.

I've never seen a bottle of Woodford Reserve go in two rounds...

Thanks for putting in the outside shower. That was a real treat Thursday afternoon and Friday morning. And next time, I'll bring the cigars with me instead of (unsuccessfully) hunting them in Greenville.

Maybe I can drag FBOMB down in October.

Got in last night around 6:30 after leaving Sunday morning and riding 350 miles a day on back roads for three days! Damn good time!

Was great to meet folks at the beer tent; very sorry we couldn't make it to Rick's. Next time!!

I am posting the pics in my ride report, for those interested.

It was much better riding home with shoulders down were they should be, instead of covering my ears. If I was any more relaxed, I would have slid off my seat.
