I'm. A. Cool. Kid. Now.
Stripped the strom down and got the radiator ready to ship out for repairs then rode the DR into town for lunch.
Here's a couple of vids from that $8 keychain camera...still need to work on the aim a little.
This one is on a weird rock-swamp sort of area between my house and town.

Had a close call meeting a car on a hilly curve...narrow dirt road.

Trees are beginning to bud but no blooms yet.. it will soon be time for flower pics again though!
Here's a shot of that rad and the area I think the leak is coming from....
...can't really see any damage to a tube though, a few crumpled fins in spite of being covered by a guard...but maybe the guard hasn't always been there?
Oh wow That's cool Kevin on the grin tooth....
It's hard to believe your bike is parked on a NC "state" Hwy in front of the store there in the hamlet of M...... isn't it.?
It's still pretty hard to get down in there so I don't think we need to worry about too many interlopers.
The cages along Wilson Creek Gorge are the ones clogging up the place on the weekends. Ha.
I've spent many lonely afternoons during the week running Old House and RockHouse , and School House trails down there........no bikes, cars, or cell phone service...........and yeh Rockhouse is gated most of the time except during hunting periods.
I forget how blessed I am to live at the top of Seven Devils looking straight across my deck at Grandfather Mtn realizing how many bikers travel from far and wide to ride that area.
Very nice RRs.
That saw mill is at Gragg, correct?
Sadly, as of late last Fall, Coffey's store has been closed.
The old fella that has been running it is ill and rumor was from neighbors across the street that the building is for sale........but it has no septic.....
The story was........during the big Wilson Creek flood of 1940 the store floated down stream a couple hundred feet to where it sits now.......
and they just set up shop again where it presently sits.......no plumbing.
Hey BarberPole! Have we met yet?
Thanks for the kind words!
I didn't know that about Coffey's store and haven't been through there lately....
Just talked to ICW and my radiator has already been repaired! :huh Awesome! as I shipped it out UPS late yesterday afternoon and he just received it this afternoon and it's already on it's way back! That deserves another clap!
Seems it was a stress crack in that tube below the mount.....not a surprise.
Can't imagine were the stress would come from?
Got it back today already!
Here's what the back side looks like now.
He said it passed a pressure test....here's hoping it holds!
Good for another 100K. Weeeee!
Did they flush the rest of the pepper out?
No wonder you were having trouble... Pepper makes the water hot.
Next time you're in the neighborhood stop by. Big green building behind the bug shop.There were 5 turkeys to start with,now down to 2. i think the local coyote mafia has something to do with that.Maybe these 2 will learn to roost and make it a while longer.
This thread needs more Bloom
Wouldn't that be sweet!
Here's what I flushed out before sending it away..
Wow!....we are neighbors!
I saw a bunch of turkeys in a field along Ridge Rd this morning...but I was in my truck.
Your wish is my command.
The Bradford Pears are currently in full bloom.
Had to run into Charlotte earlier today but couldn't resist going for a little spin since the weather turned out to be so nice. Should have been checking the valves on the Strom but decided the DR needed an oil change.
$8 keychain/helmetcam video of that driveway....the aim is better now that I took it apart and shimmed up the lens.
