Never got to the ST, but the hack is all shiny-like.

This rally was my turn to be the kickee, not the kicker.

forgot my t-shirt in one photo, went over a big mileage bonus by two miles, and missed a couple of misc. bonuses that were obvious gets if you left town in a different direction than I did.

Still had a lot of fun, it was a beautiful day to be out riding.

dfc, Prop sez that being an engineer he would have made a complete job of it, and not done this half-assed partial melting shit. He further insists there is greater meaning in this observation.

In other news, I took a run down to southeastern MN this weekend, found a couple new roads to make the 2 1/2 hour trip last to 3 1/2 hrs. The weather Saturday and Sunday was stupendous. Occasionally you do some riding where all the roads seem to be there just for riding. The GS also seemed to seeking redemption for all the pain, agony, confusion and embarrassment it has caused me this summer, it happily took all the roads in stride, straight farm roads, sweepers, tight short bumpy corners as well as a smattering of gravel, hard, loose, and washboard. I think it was hoping for an "all is forgiven", but I know how to hold a grudge.

And you need to get back on task and find me a motorcycle lift.

All depends what comes along really. I rather liked the look of that one in your workshop bay there.

Ya know, if you don't need it or whatever.

I don't think you can go wrong with a Handy. It costs a goodly sum, but amortized over a lifetime of use it's a few bucks a year. God willing, of course. I have a friend who owns the Harbor Frieght lift. It's no Handy, but it has been okay so far. I think it's a manual foot pump actuation.

The harbor freight one would do the job, but I don't like them much. I'd rather find something else ideally. I'm not in a huge hurry on this item. If need be I'll just buy a new one next year.
