Citric acid! DO NOT KREEM IT!

I have some granular Citric Acid, mix with water, try to keep heat on it, then be amazed a couple of days later. Most of the old bikes I get (including Chucks KLR) have been very rusty. It WILL NOT hurt paint. The only thing it does is eat rust.

Call me, I can hook you up.

I am good to go. What are you thinking? Was going to wander Hickman, but could do something else.

It will be 10 before I can get away. After that, the day is all mine. Will that be ok?

I'm thinking Hickman for dirt or Center Hill/Caney Fork River for street. Either way, I'm going swimming if it gets too hot.

Do any of you fellas have a chain riveter? I ordered a new chain for the Nighthawk and I'd like to rivet this one on. On the KLR and the DRZ, I've used clip types since I ran two different wheelsets. Anyhow, I'd like to do a more permanent solution for the 'hawk and thought I'd ask before I went out and bought something that I'll use three times in my life.

Let's head over towards Center Hill and do a 96/141 run. Plenty of twisty pavement over that way and we can hit a few access points on the Caney if we need to cool off.

10 o'clock at Uncle Pete's truckstop. Exit 239A on I-40 in Lebanon sound good?

Pope Blesses Hawgs

Pope blesses hundreds of Harley Davidsons

VATICAN CITY (AP) Biker culture has come to the Vatican.
Pope Francis on Sunday blessed thousands of Harley Davidsons and their riders as the American motorcycle manufacturer celebrated its 110th anniversary with a loud parade and plenty of leather.
Thundering Harley engines nearly drowned out the recitation of the "Our Father" prayer in Latin that accompanied Francis as he greeted the crowd before Mass. In St. Peter's Square, bikers in their trademark leather Harley vests sat alongside nuns and tens of thousands of faithful Catholics taking part in an unrelated, two-day pro-life rally, the centerpiece of which was Francis' Mass.
Francis addressed them both after Mass, giving a blessing to the "numerous participants" of the Harley rally.
Tens of thousands of Harley owners from around the world descended on Rome for the anniversary.
Now if I can just get him to bless my KTMs.
