Duro HF 904s...No experience with them, but need a tread that still works on the road as my pd is my only bike right now and I commute as much as I can with it...Worried a little about wet traction based on some reviews I've read, but we'll see...

The fact that I didn't see bare ground the entire time I was home didn't do much for my riding.

That's a bummer! Sounds like it's turning into a BMW. I've never had problems with the alleged "surging" issues or other throttle-body related maladies associated with the boxer engine, but they sure are notorious for it. Hope they get you back on the road soon. I was thinking about riding today but it's way to cold for me thismorning. It will have to do alot of warming up before I hit the road. It's 18 deg out here at my house.

Leeson's called and the bike is done. It was a loose ignition coil. I had some other work done on the bike, and the cost was less than half what I was expecting. They are a good family and run a good honest business.

That's great man! You know it's an honest buisness when it's less than you expected to pay LOL. Glad they got it done. Once I had the same problem on by brothers buell....well similar. It was a loose coil wire. I tried everything before I realized what it was always best to start with the simple things!

Tag

OK, I couldn't stand seeing this one sit any longer. Slipped on the long-johns and sneaked out of work early today.

TAG: Long Reach Methodist Church - Rt 2, Ben's Run (about 6 miles north of St. Marys on the Ohio River)

Church has been closed for about 10-12 years, according to an old man I spoke with.


The Money Shot. I bet there were a lot of good old John Wesley hymns sung in this church!!



View of cemetery



A look inside through a window.



NEW TAG: I wanted an easy to reach location with winter upon us. This bridge is located right across the road from a Dept of Highways facility and a State Police office, so I think the road will be plowed pretty well if it snows.



THE MONEY SHOT.



Clue #1 on the bridge.



Big Clue #2 - Historical marker next to the bridge.

Enjoy!
