Joy of motorcycling #27 - riding while buckets of water are dumped on you. At least it was summer. Friggin boot was full of water.

I could be wrong but I would suspect the alternator which u don't have so I 'll call it a generator.

I saw this group of ADV riders on a ride through Micheaux State

If you are ever up exploring that area let me know. I've only been through it once quickly. I haven't had the chance to explore. I didn't realize you southern boys made it that far north.

Sounds like the SMARs?? And I just complemented them the other day on their calendar.

Good to hear you made it with no more issues.

Mike, how long was that backup on the B-W Parkway?

I looked south when I got on the overpass and said wooo....brake lights down around the corner.

I have to get those jumper cables back to you Wayne. Thanks for letting me borrow them. I will get a set of my own for the next time.
PS - she starts right up now in the garage. Triumphs - even the modern ones are a bitch electrically. ..... But I sure do like riding her when she works.

Great ride today guys, there sure was a lot of bike traffic on Stillhouse Hollow Road this afternoon!? I got to see my completed DR650 build for the first time this afternoon, she's SWEET! I can't wait until Tuesday when I'll finally get to take her home. I got soaked on the way home, no shower needed tonight.

It wasn't too bad, but I had a feeling I should've taken 95 instead. It was just a lot of volume and people staring at an accident or breakdown on the other side.

Jeff, can't wait to see pictures of this DR...it sounds like a great build

Maybe next weekend.

I need to fix the electrode.

He told you about the electrode, right?
