    Looks like he is holed up next to the O.C.C. HQ for the night. Maybe he'll give Paul Sr. an edjumacation in building "usable" motorcycles in the morning.

    Interesting that in that one small area you have OCC, a Hilton, and a Transfer Station. :lol3

    Shit Doug, I wish that I had known you were planning on stopping in the York area. You stopped about 15 miles from my place, and then rode within five miles. when you went across the river.

    finally made it to NY, but not too far off schedule, I was originally planning to get here around noonish, and got here at 7, so even with the lung transplant, I'm only 7 hours late.
    Of course Im always late, so my noonish would in actuality have been more like 3 or 4 pm.

    Wow! I'm early, by Doug standards!

    I did have to dick around with the bike this morning, while stopped at a light, the bike died, no compression on the front cylinder
    luckily, it was only a piece of carbon stuck on the valve face, just had to pull the head & clean it off.

    I was back on the road so fast, it barely classifies as a breakdown!

    :clap

    in small aircraft it is called straking a valve,air applied into the cylinder while giving the valve spring a rap from a mallet , in hopes the offending material will dislodge and the compression-bleeddown pressure, will rise to a acceptable level-ratio.
