    I know, at least the bike can't go forward (chock secured with board and rear strap) and there isn't a lot of space above the seat. My biggest fear is @kennyanc s empty tequila bottle I took home for recycling...

    Finally went on a road ride again - after 10 weeks of "babying" my wrist.
    I pretty much missed all of fall :bluduh

    Too much fun to stop and take pics though.

    Dang, I should have checked before I left. I started at the same place less than an hour after you were there, I could have been motivated to get an earlier start.

    Plan was to got to TTC (Trails Training Center) for a day of practice and an little trials event.. but the guys dropped out like flies :bluduh


    Since I didn't feel like driving 4 hours by myself, I decided it's time "exercise" the mille instead. It's been 4 month and it started right the l:ricky - unstoppable tractor!


    Added the "winter-fairing" to keep Porter out of the wind .... sorta

    No riding pics...beached the goose to do the full fluid change. Only took 5 hours to remove the man-hole cover :lol3
    And in case anybody wants to know: there are a total of 25 bolts/plugs to remove to do the full oil change (3 shaft drive, 3 gear box, 19 for the man-hole cover). :hack

    High end "hack-stand"

    total user error: my good pocket-camera broke. Went back to the old camera that has the blind spot... somehow the setting got messed up. Apparently I suck in using cameras :dunno
