Has station sushi on the parkway? You’re a brave woman!
Ingles - one step up from a gas station
Good to see you're doing well. How are things coming with the home garage/moto den?
I have insulation up, but that's about it ,,,, RDV takes a lot of time to prep etc (there is the picture thread about it)
And the garage is already stuffed, I am moving bikes in and out to get to switch between them (I am mostly riding the DR, Guzzi Hack, or V7).
I thought about selling the Tiger, since I don't ride it enough. Well, now I am planning to ride up to the Ohio Vintage days in July, and I would have 450 miles back after doing trials on Sunday morning, and now suddenly the Tiger does sound like the perfect bike for that.... just shot me now.
Road to Nowhere
Don’t forget BYOB.
I wish, but it won't work with my work schedule (as every year) - it's too far for a one night fly by
How to load a trials bike 101
long story short, my left rear door on the Astro refused to open (gonna need to fix that before next weekend). Normally I can just lift the gasgas into the van... well, it does not work with only one door.
either way, instead of riding (too much rain) I finally managed to tackle some projects: new to me full exhaust, racks, wiring the vapor (without letting smoke out ) , choke extension, etc.... good shop day with good people and an extra hand when needed - and beers/dinner after
new to me exhaust and much needed wiring instructions for the vapor thanks to Don

This day made me realize how much I miss the shop days. I need to get my shit together and sort out/set up my own shop....
and finally start reading the book that is sitting around way too long
Move the DR over and tie down the GasGas beside it on the trailer. More than enough room. Tie the front wheel to the trailer rail so it doesn't move sideways going down the road.
the DR was already loaded and tight up before I realized the door issue... plus that trailer is really flimsy
As a former shop teacher, I really appreciated this book.
I do have all the best intentions, and I did get a lot done on the bike. And I had plans to pull the tires and shock (for service) yesterday... and then I got an invite for a little gathering/bonfire and suddenly it's midnight and I am dodging bambi on my way home -
Tonight is bike night... so maybe tomorrow
Saturday/Sunday is trials - so Friday is the day to finish the TL and load
There are just not enough days in a week
ITSA or AHRMA trials?
and the hack needs some love too....
made it home on a thread last week
got my spare already, but I need to do a full service (incl kardan) in the near future
that means, today is a day without the "giggle machine" - the girls will be disappointed
CVOTC Carolina Virginia Observed Trials Club
Should be nice and cool there.
Freaking hot up here... but I finished.
one from last weeks wedge-night...
old and pretty, old and ratty, new and dirty
(at least mine has proper brakes)
and last weekends trials excursion to VA...
so far I've only been to Aonia Pass and the trials sections are marked by vintage riders, that club has modern trials riders mark the sections and the vintage folks just ride the easier lines. Well, line 3 in Aonia is not like Intermediate in VA for sure. . I know my limits and opted not to make a total fool out of myself and rode the easier line.
Regardless, it was great practice... and fun after riding
my new buddy... listens well, but has issues with eye contact
steep stuff - Kenny did the Intermediate line
78 years old... and decades of experience.
Mike - he won the sportsman class
