I finally finished my basement - including my gear storage closet!

glad I decided not to fly 'n ride...

It was cold and raining in Vegas, and it didn't take long for the snow to fly.
This is just north south of Cedar City, UT - just north of St. George. It was snowing by Toquerville.



In Grand Junction this morning, gassing up before leaving - wanted to get back in time for the game

I am glad you took the truck also. That would have been awful on a bike.

Great to have a sunny day to take a few pictures before we get snowed in and I have to ogle it under fluorescent shop lighting in the garage.

I was more than a little surprised to find that these things sound and feel better than they look.
I'll ride to work tomorrow, have Fay Myers do a VIN check and get plates for it.

PO put Thruxton needles in (richer taper than the lean stockers), "uncovered" the fuel/air screw and turned it out 1/2 turn - it carburets perfectly.

New chain, battery, tires, and clutch. Original clutch was fine but he said it felt strange, so he put in a new clutch with heavy duty springs and it got the original feel back.
The whole thing feels like new at 14,800 miles - runs like a swiss watch.

Nice Bike Blake, but I will bet all the Beer I won on the last "how long will Blake keep this bike" game show that this beauty does not last past the coming tax day

Anyone else care to play?

I've been drooling over these since they first came out. Can I have dibs on first right of refusal, Blake?

That's a much more polite way to say essentially the same thing toddler just did....so yes

I still have an HJC dirt helmet for you, Oz - I'll bring it up one sunny weekend and you take it for a spin. Pretty cool bikes.

I have a hard time justifying congratulating Blake on buying a new motorcycle. It's kind of like congratulating someone for getting out of bed in the morning

But it's good. Now there's a great W650 on the front range so one of us can buy it when Blake's done looking at it without having to drive very far.
