Looked at her 2ce today. Once early AM on my way to work. After work, for about a nano second while grabbing some tools to do some after work, work. Sniff. Was a beautiful day. sniff. Around 40F or so, sunny with very lil wind. sob. Didn't even warm her up.

Sunset said it was gonna be nice again tomorrow. Really have to quit my job. Just gets in the way.

Went for a beer run, snapped a couple of pics... kids have an ice rink set up on the river already. That's my 'grocery getter/salt hauler'

Long awesome ride! Lost a fender strap bolt. Will be trying losing some cooling fins and blocking vents tomorrow and weld all the many leaks in my pipe. (is so cool to be able to say that. "Ill just weld that up" New welder, me an' the machine)

Springs on fork are compressing. Any one have any input on this? Is a lot and am using longer and longer spacers.

Days are getting longer! May not have to quit working so as to have more ridding time.

Told Carol she will have to ask for a raise at work so as to be able to support me in a style of which I would like to become accustomed to.

tuned up the bike i built for my buddy and rode it around for a few hours. rides nice.

when i built it i ripped apart those liquor store LED flashlights and wired the bulbs into the Sturmey Archer Dynohub. those blew out today.

i had some better LED's i was saving for my new bike, so i wired them into his instead. hopefully they keep working. i dunno what a dynohub puts out at 35mph.

he picked up the bike to show it off to his family for christmas. i'm so proud...

Maiden Voyage.
Need to take another .25 off fender. Could hear a little "tap tap" when I slowed down after the chain started to loosen up. Besides that... she rides nice. First build had no suspension, this one does. It's like floating on air. Engine seems to be a winner also. It started right up and seems to have plenty of power right out of the gate. I hope it's a beautiful day tomorrow.... gonna put some serious break in miles on her.
Life is good.

Nice Solo! It really, really is.

I couldn't believe what a difference suspension makes. Your right.
