Heading to Poe's with the wife and kid in tow. No mud run for me. We are planning to hit the bacon Festival.

Richmond Va chatter

Chuck- actually stayed in the garage until the rain stopped at 12 Saturday... Then we hit the road...

Ran 60 up to Richmond, then cut over to Huguenot Trail to Cartersville & New Canton, down thru Dillwyn and out 56 to the Thai restaurant at 56 & 29... The best Thai I have had in a long time. The owner I so cool and the food is amazing. You guys know how I like it hot, well even Rick would have had troubles with the regular hot. Medium is what you need to order there!!!

Then we headed north on 151 to Waynesboro where we met up with another rider, Hyman on an old BMW. This kid just moved to Bridgewater from PA, i think we will see him on ADV soon. We ran north where I showed Nicole Bloochdogs place, and walked down by the river. Finished up in Luray and found the only room left in town. Had some drinks at Uncle Bucks & of to bed.

We are running up to Middletown and then 522 back to 33 then home today. Maybe we will swing by on our way thru town.

Sounds like you hooked it up backwards.

The bike is definitely negative ground (I'm positive).

And that is where i went wrong... I just didn't remember uncrossing the wires. So, in about 15 minutes I'm going to hook it up. Thanks.

San is running again! The lighting circuit problem is gone too! Success!
It was just that the wires were flipped

Thanks for the heads up. I will check it out.

Hope everyone is having a nice Sunday. I came downstairs to see I've got plumbing issues again with water all my floors again. This time home warranty is sending someone out. Thinking it must be a sunken pipe and not just a clogged one.

Was putting the skid plate back on The WR when I discovered a motor mount bolt missing.
I was just getting her ready to go exploring tomorrow and Tuesday. Looks like I'll be looking for an appropriate sized nut and bolt instead.

CheapCycleParts.com will get you the correct part. Spendy, but worth the peace of mind.

If you're near lakeside I have a large assortment of metric nuts and bolts. Guarantee I've got something that will fit. Lots of loctite as well.

I'll get an automotive grade bolt in the morning. Looks like M10 and needs to be 50 mm long, only last 10-12 mm needs to be threaded. Anything I remove on this bike always gets locktite when going back on.

If I remember correctly, Pleasent's sells metric stainless. If you know of other places around town to get Metric Stainless (especially allen head bolts) please let me know.

I had to get a similar bolt for my bash plate. Pleasant's doesn't carry much in automotive bolts. Pep boys has a larger selection. Fastenal will have it or can get it, but the shipping may cost more than the bolt itself.

Pay $1 and take a walk thru Chesterfield Auto recycling's Import section and you are just about guaranteed to find what you need. Loose metric bolts EVERYWHERE. Many will come from the same Japanese or European Fastener Mfg. Use due diligence or Google Search and go with some knowledge of Metric Grade bolt identification.

Japanese = (Honda / Toyota / Nissan / Mazda / Suzuki / Lexus / Acura)

European = (BMW / Audi / VW / Volvo / Mercedes / Land Rover / Sabb)

Most of the time the counter guys are just fine with me collecting loose bolts in whatever container I find laying in the junkyard. They usually just tell me ~ Free / No Charge. I also like to keep a fat stash of the pretty gold / Cadnium plated 10mm head 6x1.0 bolts ~ often found behind door panels. They work well for project bikes with missing or mismatch panel / fender hardware.
