Sunday garage action





Running again for the first time in years. There's a rattly sound from the exhaust I need to track down, there's gas dripping from one carb, and it looks like it's not charging well. But it's a winter project!

I think it looks the same as it did on your last visit! Cameras and bright lights are wonderful things.

Sounds like a good plan
Sundays in the winter are for ice riding but the ice will be waaaayyyy to thin yet..later in December maybe, but for sure early January, so I'lll be at the ADV lunch, Greg.
Remember Brian, you're coming out to ride "with studs" this time..haha

This last week has been real annoying...with the weather alternating back and forth between days that you could ride and days that were crappy. It seems that Murphy's Law was working just fine as every nice day was a work day for me. Crap!

Bikes still have batteries in, just in case......but I think we're done.
