    Great Attitude! I still blame the Ass you bought it from. Lol. I never had it off and I know the previous owner had addressed it.
    I have tools to split the case etc. feel free to reach out.

    I am hurting today. Good lesson to look up and think ahead. Rider error with not enough speed. I was still in street mode and not looking ahead.
    The bike is capable...rider is old. 55.
    This desk job has me out of shape. I need to get back to Michigan and run a chainsaw for a few months...my workout program.

    Since 450 miles yesterday made more hungry for HNF, decide to hit it again after morning storm! 1BDC00E6-20A0-408A-98D9-E7A2AC258EC0.jpeg

    I know what you mean Martin. RoadDad had a very "addictive" HNF ride this year. I likely be riding it clockwise in the very near future. Will be able to save a lot of time by not stopping at all those neat old cemeteries that were along the route. Also likely be wearing two layers of "Depends" as not to have to do those "old men" stops every half hour as well!

    Thanks again for stopping! I pulled in the driveway at 5:15. Had to help with the final set up for my wife’s Halloween party. I was forgiven for being a bit late. It was worth it.

    How was the meth lab tour? :lol2

    We find something new in Southern Indiana on every ride and this one was no different.
    Had a HOOT with Gorillahands on Fridays pre ride and the Army Corp of Engineers post ride.

    Yes! Thanks Jerry. Also enjoyed our short time together on Friday. I was able to squeeze in about 60 miles on Sunday and plan to hit some tonight.
    I TOO WOULD LOVE A STICKER AT LOOSE NUT. if you please.
