$8 keychain/helmetcam video of that driveway....the aim is better now that I took it apart and shimmed up the lens.


Did you ever fix the third gear on that DR or is still a four speed?

Well since I last posted those Springtime pics.....it's become winter again.

(and yes on the DR )

Hey Timmy!

DW


Yesterday I put the Strom back together and today I went for a little spin around the neighborhood in an attempt to purge the cooling system.

Sunny but still unseasonably cool....






















I tried another helmetcam video but youtube says it's gonna be another 6 hours to upload!

Howdy Banjo! Good Stuff. I still enjoy checking out your blogtastic thread you got going here. Every time I pass an old delapidated fixerupper house or outbuilding it reminds me of you, or your pics I should say.


Did you have to change any shims on the Strom ? I checked my 2011 last summer at 24k miles and a few were just at the limit so I swapped some shims, probably won't check again till 40k miles.

Hey thanks!

Nope....it's never been out of spec....exhaust's have been just inside minimum for a long time now but, if the feeler gauge goes in, I leave 'em alone.

I decided to let Seasick Steve narrate a little spin around my neighborhood to warm up the engine and get some grub.

I used youtube's 'stabilization enhancement' and I think it made it even shakier than it was before!
