Nice gloves... I got a set similar to those from Cycle Gear a few years back... leather to keep the wind out and oversized so I can wear cotton undergloves. That pair is also extra nice because none of the seams face the wind and no air gets in... most gloves I've bought before I've had to tape the seams with electrical tape to keep All the wind out.
I also prefer the gauntlet type gloves like in the pic because they work wonders for keeping the wind from sneaking up your sleeves at 70 mph and below 30 degrees outside...

Too busy to mess with the bike today and took a nap this morning before opening up shop so I didn't even get to make my usual taco run... But I did fire it up earlier when things slowed down and filled the shop with 2 stroke smoke again...

Seen folks take plastic soda bottles and make wind guards. Can tape em on JFN (just for now)

Keeping the wind off helps big time and this method is almost free. dunno, just a thought

I think trail riding might be OK about now, drying out some from rain in CA.

Temp went up 10F so today at 60F and was nice.

I got to putting some of bike back after solving engine problem with valves gap set now to spec and proper W30 engine oil, new condenser and points, plug, it is ready.

I got a new pulley for a belt that was wearing out. I also noticed a cover from my DIY design had been pressing and vibrating where it put a shallow wear spot about the size of a finger nail maybe 16th". I will use shim washers and be sure it does not continue as it is the crankcase cover that the white metal (soft) I saw the spot.

The cover is definitely needed though as a 10 inch diameter spoke pulley that turns from 700 to 1200 rpm is other wise near my leg and I won't be allowing that!
