    For the most part, she'll probably use them for long distance touring for another week or two.

    Very good news. :D

    Especially after she got it washed. :lol3

    Well, that annoying "bump" I started feeling in the handgrips on the way back from Vermont got to the point I could feel it in the footpegs too. Initially I was blaming the Vermont roads for beating my steering neck bearings to pieces :lol3, but as it turned out, my chain master link was failing. Only got about 10,000 miles out of it, not good. So I put on a new chain and sprockets.

    Then I went for a little shakedown run. I had also re-shimmed my cush drive rubbers, so it feels like a new bike. :clap

    I dropped by to see my friend Ronnie, it's been a while. We have done several trips together over the years (Maine, Key West, The Natchez Trace) but he's decided to stop riding and even sold his bike.

    Nice millstone in his front yard.

    Some birdhouses along his pasture fence.

    Then I rode home into an intense sun, just in time to do the dishes before the boss got home. :D

    Saw this beautiful old cemetery on Boy Scout Camp Road. They have done some thinning and clearing since I was by here last; you couldn't see this from the road before. Very pretty.
