About 350 miles......with the final 100 on 4 lane in the dark...(it's more fun to sit in traffic on the BRP)





Reddog* is riding down next week and my bike is in dire need of maint! Rear tire's almost gone, chain and sprockets badly worn, leaking coolant..again, oh, and it's due for an oil change too! Guess I'd best get busy..chop, chop!!

I rode the BRP for about 25 miles north from Rt 221 last Thurs. when I left Mars Hill. There was a little more color around GF Mtn then.

Any chance of getting a location for this?

I'm thinking I'll try every 10k miles until i hit 100k. That motor will scream at 10,000 rpm.

y'all are funny!

Today's fun.
Oil & filter, chain & sprockets, rear wheel bearings, used rear tire, used rotor and pads. (old one now looks better than the new one)

Still need to clean the air filter and make a closer inspection of that coolant leak. (new hose on order)

Hopefully that'll at least get me through leaf peep'n season.

p.s. odo @ 115,591

A picture that I took of Jock up on the BRP made the front page of a Norton site. Seems he won the longest distance award at a rally he attended. http://www.ntnoa.org/
