No vacation today I actually worked on something!


Decided to clean up that radiator with a brass wheel on a dremel then sprayed it with some contact cleaner that wasn't supposed to leave any residue. It all looked pretty good so I mixed up a bit of that same epoxy I used when I rewound the igniter coil on the DR's stator.

It's pretty fluid so after it started to set up a bit I added more and flipped it so it would dry with a thicker 'drip' along the edge of that tube where the crack is.




Maybe I'll take another picture once it's all set....gonna leave it alone for a few days....















Then I decided to burn the rest of that bad gas out of the pig.

Lots of traffic out and about today.


















Flasher grabbed the NC Tag this morning and already had a new one up near Lake Norman so I figured a run up around Cramer Mtn to Spencer Mtn and then out Black Snake Rd might be fun....it didn't matter to me whether I got the tag or not and didn't even bring a laptop.

This could have been the next tag....oh well, it'll stay on standby.


















I did notice that the cotton fields finally did get cut....and there was evidence of a little bit of business at the cotton gin in Fallston as well.

I suppose there's more than one of those around. That one is relatively new and is in the middle of about one short mile of sweet curves around the base of Cramer Mtn. Remember hearing about an armored car heist in Charlotte some years ago? The dummies bought a house with cash atop Cramer Mtn....pretty much said "Hey Feds! Look at me!!" They're were several involved and the ladies went out and got boob jobs and the guys were buying new Harleys and trucks with cash...no red flags there seeing as how they were living in a trailer park the week before!


On another note....

Radiator repair is looking pretty good this morning...it may be next year before it gets tested though.

I wasn't able to get much riding in over the holidays but I did have a few visitors stop by!
Thanks for taking the time to have lunch with me folks!
Drif10 and family!












Followed by Happy Riding and her Brother JGNC the very next day!



He's actually the guy that beat me to the tag I was chasing at the white chapel.



Between lunches I managed to get the Strom back together and taken back apart and back together again.

Radiator repair is good...so far. But the fuel injection rail started leaking and then one of the o-rings on a fitting near the thermostat was leaking...got all that fixed and it was all tight on a short test run but the weather has kept me from getting too far away lately.


I did, however get up to the Grand Opening party at a very cool little motorcycle shop that just opened in downtown Asheville!!



https://www.facebook.com/motovicious



Lots of ADV inmates showed up and both owners are already involved in this community as well!


I have a bunch of pics of the place as well as some of the usual suspects that I'll start posting up later, hopefully today/night sometime.........

Don't worry of you missed it as I've just today been informed that this was merely a 'soft opening' and the official grand opening will be later on this spring!



It was pouring rain down in the Charlotte area but when I arrived at 99 S. Lexington around 4ish it was under clear skies and bright sun. And who's bike do I find already parked out front?















That's right, Happy Riding! Hawk in the background and that's a BDXMPL playing with the trashcan.














James aka Blink 152 chats with a couple of friends with his rally bikes lurking in the background. (he's one of the owners)
