Was a nice day for a ride but I gradually began smelling antifreeze again...the smell got stronger as the miles clicked away.





Turned out to just be a loose hose clamp on the bottom radiator hose though.

I hope. Tightening it seemed to have stopped it on a follow up spin.

My 2 cents...........

Hey Kev,
If that radiator acts up again go get some of this stuff..........

You can also fill, drill, and tap a stripped bolt hole in aluminum with it too....

Just sayin........

Thanks!

So far the radiator is holding up but that hose was still dripping a bit. But I swapped it out for a foot of new 1" heater hose and a couple of full size clamps and that seems to have done the trick for now.

Just a short test ride though, maybe I can get out again tomorrow afternoon....

This house is barely a mile from me and has sat vacant for a while but somebody has started cleaning the place up, maybe they'll restore it?



Our friend and inmate here saluda scored a truck load of junk dirt bikes from one of the sheds, they were listed on CL. There was an old Hodaka in the bunch that he's trying to salvage!















Just 2 doors down from that house is a gas station.




















That's all I got from today...maybe there'll be more tomorrow?

Speaking of snow......we got a pretty good batch of it down here in Sunny SC too. I'm not really feeling up to going out and doing any stunt riding this time around...maybe next time. I did go for a short walk around the neighborhood though and thought I'd share a few shack shots with you.

You got it easy.
It's looked like that around here for a month. And it's not just snow, there was snow, freezeing rain, snow, freezeing rain, snow. There's a thick crust and the farm road is packed into ice.
I spent 5 hours one day trying to get a load of tobacco to the blacktop so I could take it to the warehouse to sell. 4wd truck chained to a 4wd tractor and the ice just laughed.
Is spring coming ? The weather guy promises 50's and even 60 later in the week.
