I installed my new front wheel with new 203mm rotor on my La jolla. Hydraulic brakes coming in mail. Debating on tig welding caliper mounting tabs or buying a RST suspension fork.

Put a briefcase-style saddlebag on the China Girl with intention of carrying survival fuel in it.. Darned if I didn't run out of gas 'way into the road to Dewey OK. after having neglected to do it. Needed the exercize anyhow I guess. Just trying to get some air after a dismal failure of the Sturmey Archer 3-speed on the 6-1/2 HP Monarch. Think I will do the Shimano tranny to replace the S-A. I gave up trying to cut wet grass too. The weeds are 18" in places and the Lawnbooy is overmatched. Anyone got an extra sythe?

I was through there a couple of weeks ago!

Home Depot now carries fuel in a quart can --- premixed to 40:1 or 50:1 --- with StaBil already added. Seems like this would be an excellent way to carry extra fuel.....it's already in a can that won't leak.

If you're referring to the puch head puchase from forum member k.mah, yes received it a few days ago, came in good shape, just needs to be cleaned up, I have since oredered another puch head as well, the last one I ordered looks to have a better squish band but not sure if it will perform any better that could be noticed, time will tell once I give them a try.

Tested my charging circuit with a multimeter. I already had my system set up and tested before, but I had to replace the generator spindle and I also installed a different battery, so I just wanted to test it and make sure its still working properly. It appears to be, but I'll also be testing it over the next few days to see if there is any voltage drop in the battery. There shouldn't be, but testing is the best way to make sure. In a little while I'll be off to tractor supply to get a trailer marker light to use as a brake light. I'll also be changing my current brake light into a tail light eventually, so that I can eliminate the need for any batteries that can't be charged by my charging system.
