The Women's sport bike rally is this weekend at the dragon so there will be lots of ladies up there. I think a scooter club is meeting up there too.

That's the plan at least
Picked up a cheap race/seal driver at Harbor Freight and got the races in, packed the bearings and put it back together.
Fixed the bike, saved some money doing it myself, got some new tools and learned how to replace steering head bearings. Marking this down as a a win. Need to get out and ride now.
