    sooo, since I do like the Guzzi too much to turn it around, I figured I just sell the Tiger and the XS650 hack project - that will pay for the Guzzi and a bike I know how to work on and less heavy (two more reasons to part with the Tiger).

    and there it is - back to square one, the bike I started this ride report on

    somewhere between that and the one above, I had some gravity issues... and found out that the bark busters where all plastic and my pinky is not made out of steel.... :ace

    still no change in the leaves - this is unusual late

    I was thinking the same thing, no change here either. They changed like crazy the week we were in Maine.

    soo... yesterday was "bike-maintenance" and "mental health day" at the same time...


    bike maintenance included putting a charger on the guzzi and charging other batteries the old fashion way: riding :D

    took the Tiger to the swap meet - one last ride before I am selling it.

    [​IMG]

    and thank you to "I never remember your name, but you bought all of Hunters boots at the last swap meet" guy. He left me a bunch of shop towel while we had lunch... not sure if that is a hint :lol3

    [​IMG]

    long way home

    [​IMG]

    still waaay to green for this time of the year

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    next bike needed charging:

    [​IMG]

    going down in cc's. 3rd bike - no battery....

    [​IMG]

    well, fuck - didn't want to start and then I drowned it :bluduh

    [​IMG]

    more two wheels - managed to get up the hill :D (ok I walked between the two switchbacks)

    [​IMG]

    dropped the wheels entirely for the dogs
    (gonna stay away from there once hunting season starts)

    [​IMG]

    and back to "wheels" with @guitarhack and @kennyanc

    [​IMG]

    and the first fire of the season... love this time of the year

    Spring sounds like a better plan. If you decide to sell, you may get more for it in spring.
