    Thanks! :thumb

    So far the radiator is holding up but that hose was still dripping a bit. :umph But I swapped it out for a foot of new 1" heater hose and a couple of full size clamps and that seems to have done the trick for now. :D

    Just a short test ride though, maybe I can get out again tomorrow afternoon....

    This house is barely a mile from me and has sat vacant for a while but somebody has started cleaning the place up, maybe they'll restore it?

    Our friend and inmate here saluda scored a truck load of junk dirt bikes from one of the sheds, they were listed on CL. There was an old Hodaka in the bunch that he's trying to salvage! :thumb















    Just 2 doors down from that house is a gas station. :D

    Speaking of snow......we got a pretty good batch of it down here in Sunny SC too. I'm not really feeling up to going out and doing any stunt riding this time around...maybe next time. I did go for a short walk around the neighborhood though and thought I'd share a few shack shots with you. :lol3

    You got it easy.
    It's looked like that around here for a month. And it's not just snow, there was snow, freezeing rain, snow, freezeing rain, snow. There's a thick crust and the farm road is packed into ice.
    I spent 5 hours one day trying to get a load of tobacco to the blacktop so I could take it to the warehouse to sell. 4wd truck chained to a 4wd tractor and the ice just laughed.
    Is spring coming ? The weather guy promises 50's and even 60 later in the week.
    :clap

    Was out riding around today and saw some cool old shacks. Thought to myself "The ADV Banjo would like to see these." Too bad I didn't have time to stop. Next time I'm out that way I'll take a few and send to you.

    No snow in Asheville though...in fact it felt like a summer day up there when I stopped in at Moto Vicious to see if the boys were staying busy.

    Many of you are probably familiar with _anatic's low side last weekend that resulted in a broken collar bone. :umph The bike has minor injuries compared to that.

    Look at that rack of used gear for sale! :spam and that white Ninja only has 100 miles on it! :huh

    [​IMG]
















    Well I left the boys to their wrenching and went back over the mountain to Lake Lure and grabbed a burger down by the river. Not too many bikes there for such nice weather but today is the first day of Bike Week in Daytona Beach so lots of the Harley crowd may be down there. :dunno

    Walked back down by the river to stretch my legs after eating a burger on the porch....would be a nice night to sit around the fire as it's still pretty mild out and the sun just went down, wonder if anybody is there right now?

    The only piece of old iron in the lot today.
