Rode to nearby exhaust shop to get the kickstand mount re-welded back onto the frame. Nice day to get out, at about 21'c and fine it's a perfect winter day. Bike is running great too since carby tune.

Watched it get wet in the frog-strangler rain we got today.
Three inches of rain sitting on the phone wires....

I've got another MTB-base on the go.. Over the past few days I've cleaned up and installed the motor, laced a new spoke into the back wheel and trued it followed by the sprocket and trued that as well among a dozen other things since the base itself was a bit of a wreck to start.. crusty, rusting, rotten cables etc. Today I got the CDI set up, tank installed, new brake cables and clutch cable and roller installed.. Chain too... Cleaned and repacked the front wheel bearings (did the back when I replaced the spoke). If all goes as I expect, it should be done tomorrow.

I got caught in the storm between Nashville and Knoxville Wednesday.......even when I-40 is covered with ice, I never before seen traffic slowed to 25mph!!! It was like running under a continuous waterfall!

I've always called those types of rains "turd floaters" ---- however, this one merited an updated name..."septic tank floater".

Started out in Charleston, WV this morning and took the scenic route to Knoxville through Virginia and Kentucky. All told, I did a touch over 1200 miles today without a 'co-pilot'.

Same here... Everytime I get a chance to ride it's raining... hopefully it'll dry up over here today or tomorrow.
Anyway, when it's raining I usually have a list of things to do on the bike so besides getting my pipe built and installed, my engine mounts welded to the frame, new carb installed and tuned as well as checking every nut and bolt etc to be sure nothing's worked it's way loose... I really need to get out and ride tho so I can break in the new engine because I'm running out of work to do on it and other parts on order haven't come in yet, but they'll be here once it's nice and dry outside...
Here's how it looks as of a few days ago...

1200 miles is nearly impossible even during the cross country Iron Butt ride. 1200 miles is a 24 hour ride!

I was in my Nissan Altima. Did it in 19 1/2hrs.

The most I've done on a motorcycle in one day is from OKC to almost Pensacola, Fl. I was on my Goldwing and my buddy was on a Kawasaki cruiser. I traded him bikes a couple of times for a few hours because I thought he was gonna die!!
