Changed the fuel filter and took it for a 340 mile shakedown cruise, runs like a champ and is getting better MPG as well.

Yo rokklym,
Used to live a couple miles from there, the old mill is one of my favorite stops. Skinny dipped in the pond back in the day.
A great area to ride in w/numerous great scenic, winding, up n down 2ndary roads.
