    Clutch is fixed, bike lights installed, just gotta figure out how to mount my license plate. Or not.

    I might have fuel issues. Meaning, I'll have to bring a coupla ounces of two stroke oil and siphon some gas outta one of your giant tanks. I've only got a 30 oz tank, and I have no idea how the street mileage is. Should be enough for a one-way trip, at least...

    You guys can call me when you get to Neil's to wake me up, then call me again from Dale's. Maybe we can meet at the 7/11 on Newland and Heil?

    Good news Baird,

    Don’t you live just a couple of blocks from Dale? How about you meet us at Dale’s?

    Are any of the riders recording a video? Probably would be interesting.

    Sorry, I don’t own a GoPro, or anything like that. I’ll try to take some pictures, but often when I am in the moment, I prefer to stay in the moment and not mess around with pictures.

    And I don't want to die
    I just want to ride on my motorcycle

    The Indian has no front braking with the lever going all the way to the grip after
    adjusting the cable several times.
    The coaster brake will lock up in a sudden stop with the 130 lb bike.
    It's scary and I almost blew a turn the other day on one of the few times I rode it.

    I have an authentic board tracker that has no brakes so I am going to chicken out
    to live to ride another day.
    You would think that with the $$$ I paid it would come with a functioning front brake
    but that Worksman drum is shiny and shitty.
    Dan said they work pretty good after a few months but the bike may be totaled by then.

    I am on the hunt for a Honda CB- SL 100 or 125 drum brake to lace into a new wheel and I
    think I found one and a complete SL 125cc that has no such issues.
    Bicycle wheels and head sets are nothing but maintenance even in under 30 miles.

    I guess I am no board track connoisseur.
    Fixed the back killing bars and back sloping seat but no brakes is a deal and maybe life ender
    so regretfully I am gonna miss out on all the fun and sleep in!

    PS: The gas vent is inside the tank with a vent in the front bottom of that gorgeous tank but even with
    a bit of gas in the tank I can feel it spraying on my feet wearing thongs!!! Hahahahaaha
    I gotta fix that too!!!
    Looks over function with my pricey Indian Honda.
    I ordered a new brass cap to drill for a vent but I wont get it until next week.
    **** me!!! :(

    My bike loads up and four strokes cruising at 35mph. Had to keep jumping ahead of everyone to clear it out. Not built for street riding. But my tank had plenty of fuel, which was nice.

    Our bikes drew a pretty nice crowd. I had to walk away a few times 'cause I get sick of explaining it.

    Gotta give Gilbert a lot of respect for making that trip from Hollywood. I don't even like driving that far...

    I took one boring picture.

    Never boring to the guys that know what it takes to build a bike to that level.

I was so KOOL to see the bikes up close, hardly none back home, especially in Brainerd were I live, and none home made. Thanks for putting this ride on, now have a big incentive to get mine done............Curt

    Yep after getting good advice and suggestions for years, I finally got to meet Curt in person. It was a perfect day for him to visit with us riding our bikes to show off. Made my day. Hope to see Curt again soon.

    Like Clint always said “ Made my day “, it was a perfect day. At my age not sure how many years I can keep traveling, but would love to come with my finished bike. Do my best...........Curt

    Curt,you bring your bike and we'll do a group ride for sure.

    I wanna thank Gilbert too! I haven't done a ride like that since we went to Hillcos. Yeah, been awhile.
    It's always good seeing everyone! Missed not seeing Bill. We need to do this once a month, and find a good place for Grub:)
    Get ready Neil!!

    Had fun riding with Ray, Dale, and Baird. It took me 1 hour to get to Ray, then another hour to get to the show. It was a little cold and dark, those potholes really sneak up on you.

    The show was amazing! Way more cars than I thought would be there. There wa a lot of diversity and some real museum quality rides.

    Get ready, I took a lot of pictures and I didn’t even take one of every car.

    And more

    And oh yah, I forgot to say how cool it was to see Curtis Fox there! It didn’t register to me at first, because I know he lives so far away. It was like meeting a celebrity, I felt like I already knew him from the many posts of his I have enjoyed. Thanks for coming down Curt!
