It will be there. Poor neglected DR

I put 30k miles on one of those some time ago. What is wrong with it?

Don't really know, got home from long fast ride (WFO ) from Chattanooga TN to Murfreesboro TN where I lived at the time, pulled into the drive way and turned it off. It died.

I must have pissed it off, I think something seized up.

Ride Video - The Road to Little Switzerland

Here is my latest video. Starts out slow, but then transitions to a faster pace. Watch it in HD with some volume and stick with it to the end.



See you tomorrow evening at Hawthornes.

Well, had to go 100 miles or so, stop and sit in traffic, and then pick the GF up.

Dinner was fun everyone! Can't wait to make it up again soon.
