Rode downtown to pick up a bunch of meds.
The Pig ran great! This cool weather really wakes up the chinagirls.
Going on three months without a flat tire! *knocks on wood*
Still carry patch kit and tools everywhere.

Today i tested my top end rebuild. realized it wasnt quite right. did some quick measuring and found that the cylinder i got was actually 1mm taller on the base. so much sanding and some port adjusting later its back together with a new piston fresh rings and a new wristpin bearing. silver its 5x heavier than the original. Test starting tomorrow and a 60-100m ride!

All I did physically to the bike mechanically, was I just my brakes and check over my routine fastener check . Then motorized bicycle e-mails out the a$$.

I just bought a Reese Sportwing bike carrier for my car. Gonna install it later today. Looks like it is the best for our 'heavy' bikes because the rack's hooks go through the wheels. With the way my wheels are attached, there should be no way to lose the bike off the rack.

I guess that it will be trial by fire when I haul it to New Mexico in a couple of weeks!!

I recently purchased this same rack. The only difference is mine has the 2 inch bar
going into my two inch hitch on the truck. I have successfully carried two 70 pound Ebikes at one time with no problems. I also bought the adapter so the rack would fit the smaller hitch on my car. This lengthens the out shaft thus limiting tongue weight by about half. I have carried the gas bike alone behind the cars smaller shaft a couple times no problem.

Seems for the price it is Ideal for heavy bikes. I hope this helps.

Only thing I ever have to do is charge the batteries when I am sleeping. maybe check the tire pressure every now & then!
