July 4th Hutton Ride

Well, looks like most of the ladies got their panties in a wad today. Somehow Motomike and I managed to get ours untangled. Left out @ 830 for a wonderful 75.8 miles into the "abyss and mysterious caverns of Blackwater forest" or something like that. Got a few sprinkles here and there but no rain. Mike had his torque monster 600r and I was on the trusty 400drz (mini thumper) both had 4 gallons on board so we didn't care when we got to wherever we were going. Rode fast @ times and slow and easy other times. Hell, we even rode some wheelies over the humps (just for you Papawheelie) and didn't blow any O-rings or anything else for that matter. Mike is a great guy, really enjoyed meeting him. Thanks for a fun run. Sorry you guys missed out, next time..........

Ride with Garrett was a good one. Was a little worried after getting there, but he was all in, and so was I. Had some tracks from last ride I did with Barney, so we managed to piece together a decent ride and go looking at some new areas too.

Despite our monsoon season, not a ton of big puddles, except one or two we had to forge. Good mix of terrain from slick clay, wet sand, mud, grass, gravel, and that prehistoric gray stuff that is slick as ice. Made braking down hill into some corners a little fun, especially on the XR6.

As usual, good fun in blackwater. Will try and make it one more time this summer before school year kicks in. Garett was great to ride with and a good adver. Look forward to more rides.

She's registered and plated, got the damper, hand guards and battery swapped and have two rides I the books. Its geared at 13/52 and I swapped the rear to 51 to test on Sunday.

Gimmee hooked me up with a Golan and I have to check a rocker arm pivot. Something about an upside down "dot". Maybe some Rekluse adjustment as well.

My big take a way so far is it's much more planted to the ground, very confidence inspiring. Very fast.

Cool -

The upside down rocker are was for the early model 500s. I checked mine and it was ok but its worth it to pull the valve cover and make sure. Hell slip a feeler gage under the valves while you have it down...

The hardest part (takes the most time) is getting the friggin right side bolts out the valve cover...rest is easy. Let me know if you need help or pointers.

Timberlake ride

Had a great time riding with you all today. 7 of us all on KTM's ventured out from Timberlake in near ideal conditions. Sand was perfect and no dust, even though everyone was struggling to keep the front end straight in the wet stuff. All in all it was super fun, hope we get another break in the heat this summer so we can do it again.

Dr Philgood played with his new camera and I did some quick editing. Gives you and idea of what at fastburn ride is all about.

Pensacola BMW/ Moto Guzzi this coming Saturday

I won't be able to make it but some out there may be interested in going.

Hey everyone, we are working hard here at BMW & Moto Guzzi of Pensacola to become not just another run of the mill motorcycle dealership. Our goal is to make our shop, your shop.

We will have test rides on new California Custom 1400 and the V7 racer, in addition to all the other Guzzi models on the showroom floor. Patralla's famous Lasagna will be for lunch and we are giving away a Helmet and a few other things for door prizes.
