That's a really cool place; do you think a weary traveler could camp there overnight?
I’m not sure,
here’s a picture of where it’s at .
I grew up on the 10 Curves Road!
I swear this is the last ride of the Valkyrie for the year, so a buddy of mine stopped by around 11:00 to go for a ride, ended up over three hundred miles, lunch, some sightseeing, dodging rain and getting back at 19:00
I didn't bring my camera, it was a sullen day and pictures look blah when it's like that, but any day is a good day at the Grand Sable Dunes.
Even made it home with only minor dampness, but as soon as I pulled in the garage the sky's opened up, can't beat that.
I was at the same place you were...(09/2020)
Time for some winter layup maintenance, thought about a new rear tire, but this one still has some life left, 8000 miles so far on the Bridgestone excedra max, I’ll buy another when this one is done.
Left side rear wheel bearing was getting a little crunchy, Gonna replace one might as well replace both, with a new grease seal, of course all oem
Replaced pinion cup seal,cleaned up all the splines and gave them the Honda spec lubes, that little black tube is the highly prized Honda moly 60, NLA so use sparingly,
Acquired the fender stays and trunk rails from an interstate model, my plan is to make a base plate for it and put an old Vetter top box on and have the base plate extend forward to where the pillion seat is now, this would just be for vacation time.
I’d like to put an old windjammer on it but with the big rad and wide tank I think it would be nigh on impossible, also it would offend so many in the cruiser crowd, and that would make me happy in some way, so I’ll just settle with a Vetter top box, that should send a few into some type of seizure
I am surprised that it needs a wheel bearing. How many miles on the Valk?
Just 20k but 21 years old,these bikes wear out the left bearing for some reason, there’s room for a double wide bearing, but I’d have to have the axle spacer milled down
Well the Vetter box ain’t gonna work, it’s too wide and you wouldn’t be able to open the saddle bags,so this is the solution.
Its 1/4’’ aluminum not that soft stuff, cut from the top of an old kenworth battery box
Had to keep everything within 14” wide so the lids can be opened. It’s stiff enough I don’t think I need these extra brackets in the front, but probably will cut some anyway.
This will completely cover the tail light so I can go with 3 3 1/3” dual function led
or a 3”x7” super bright led
found a Give box on Amazon that fits my needs
Open to suggestions on the lights. It will all be powder coated black of course, and provision at the front to strap things down.
Jeepers! Looks like the landing deck on an aircraft carrier!
I'm not laughing at you, I'm laughing with you.
