Belt change for Vanessa this morning. Now trying to catch the Sunday Morning Club ride.
Changing the belt took took longer than I thought.
So I missed the start of the club ride.
I tried to meet them along the way without success.
So I took a shorter route to the restaurant.
Having extra time, I turned off of Heckscher Drive towards the Dames Point Bridge.
There, I stumbled upon the El Faro Memorial Park, memorializing the ship that sank in a hurricane several years ago.
While checking out the individual markers, I noticed full cans of Bud Light at most of them.
I was pleased to find the park.
From there it was lunch at Palms Fish Camp, outside on the waterfront deck.
After lunch I thought I would continue another thirty miles to Fernandina Beach to see a new brewpub where my nephew, Riley, will manage the taproom as soon as they can open.
that looks like a wonderful place to gather, Bill
i hope they will have an IPA with YOUR name on it
On A1A south of Fernandina Beach whe stopped by a one lane zone.
After that, I rode home, but decided to stop at my other nephew’s brewpub, Main & Six, to buy some beer to help them out in these trying times.
But I looked outside and saw both nephews, Riley and Alex, with their partners.
So I had a beer with them before heading home.
What a nice way to spend a Sunday.
Serendipity is a wonderful thing
Almost the definition of a great Sunday Bill!
BtW.. the dogs tail wraps well around her foot so well.. I thought man, those are the furriest shoes I've ever seen!
how many bud lights did ya drink
I resisted and left the full cans of Bud Light on the markers.
Nothing wrong with Bud Light, it is made in Jacksonville among other places, but I went for the craft beer at my nephew's place.
Just one hazy IPA That they call Swoop Juice.
Then Riley shared a coconut porter from Burial Brewery in Asheville that was like candy.
Only one small glass of that.
I bought three different 32 oz cans of beer to take home
The good weekend rolled over into Monday when my brother, David, called to see if I wanted to go for a ride for lunch today.
Of course, I said yes.
He rode his new Primavera 150 Yacht Club over and threw me the keys to give it a try.
He rode the beater hot rod, Vanessa.
First impressions of the Primavera 150 was that it is incredible.
It is the smoothest, most refined scooter I have ever ridden.
Good looking too.
David mentioned that Vanessa felt much faster, and that is true.
But for around town riding, the Primavera would be great.
Lunch of Pernil (pulled pork) at our local Dominican restaurant was good too.
And David bought.
Seems that it wouldn't be right to drink a beer that was left to honor the deceased.
I agree, was in jest, as I’m sure you know
I know too.
I was surprised to see so many cans of beer.
They were unopened and faded by a few weeks exposure to the sun.
The respect shown was impressive.
Reminds me of why i want the Sean Wotherspoon primavera
So glad for your words about it
The Yacht Club is gorgeous with those blue accents
I chose to ride Rocket to work today.
After pushing it out of the garage, I checked the tire pressures, as I often do.
When I put the gauged pump on the rear tire, the needle didn't move.
Last month it was the same. But while in Chris' shop, I had him look at it and he found a staple in the tread.
He patched it with sticky string and it held for the entire trip around Lake Okeechobee.
But today it was dead.
The tire is relatively new, probably not more than a couple of thousand miles on it.
I am thinking, rather than getting it off the scooter, an effort that requires removal of the exhaust and swingarm (technically exhaust bracket), then paying for a new tire and mounting, that I would try Ride On.
I'm sorry you are having that issue
I'm anxious to see what people think
I've never heard of anyone putting that product in the tire after it already wasn't holding air
people normally put in a brand-new tire
of course i am not sure there is a difference but I'm not aware of it being used in this way but I'm anxious to hear what the experts here think
What exercise mats are meant for.
If it were me, I'd pull the tire and have it patched inside. Or just replace it. With so little contact patch between me and eternity, I want the best contact there is!
Rope style tire plugs are controversial, especially when used in motorcycle or scooter tires. I have used them without issue and don’t have a problem with them. However, once the rope has been inserted it does push the cords apart in that area. If it starts leaking, chances are another rope plug won’t fix it and patching from the inside may or may not be ok depending on the damage to the cord structure. Unfortunately there is no good way to tell.
If it was my bike I would use a spray bottle of soapy water to confirm where the leak is. If it’s not at the previously installed rope plug I would address it like any other puncture depending on size and severity. If it is at the previously installed plug I’d go ahead and buy a new tire. I’ve spent enough time around you to know you’re a decent guy and your hide is worth more than the cost of a tire!
