The beer is showing a little cleavage there...
Brake Fluid.........Western DOT 3 variety.
They make that stuff right up the road from me as well. I certainly would not turn one down
I had 4 big sellers during the early 90's on the Grateful Dead tours. Samual Adams ( Sammy's ), Heineken, Budweiser ( The dollar a can best seller ) and Sierra Nevada.
With leftovers at 2 AM the prefered options among us vendors for personal consumption was in this order.
and a distant 4th that anybody even slightly sober would resist until it was the only cold liquid left to drink.......Sierra Nevada !
Now think about it....its 2 AM, you just partied for usually 5 hours, and its free cold beer.......yet, many a night there was leftover S.N. at the bottom of the cooler !
( I kept a personal stash of Coors Light for hydration purposes for fellow vendors......its mostly the only thing we drank on those hot summer tours. )
Jealous. Most of Tonto NF closes tomorrow so that means no access to local riding here for at least a month.
I was down in Tonto Basin the other day, a lot of burn area.
Too hot anyway with you fools in your full pants and jackets LOL
Time for a trip north
This hits way too close to home. I just picked up a DR and haven’t gotten to the NSU yet but my god, after 7 hours riding all over Yellowstone with my wife we are both icing our asses... next thing to do after fixing the NSU will be investing in a comfier seat.
The bolts that come with the adapters are bottoming out, they are a washer too long. Grind them down, buy shorter ones, or add a washer that fits below the bolt head.
Nice, I love the FLH, and the Road King is so versatile with detachables.
Had an hour and a half this afternoon for therapy, grabbed a fistful of curves I’m loving July here so far.
New tank, New exhaust, New tires! Now I just need the new 18in rear wheel so I can mount up that new Tusk Dual Sport rear!
Your July weather, is pretty similar to our July weather!
Yeah, almost 200k acres total. This was very green a couple of weeks ago. Check out the guardrail.
I did just that for a few days last week. Made my first bonus loop but I cheated with 2 extra wheels.
You had the axle adjusted on different notches...
You had to to set the axle on different notches to correct the chain alignment?
I have rode both the PDS and Linkage bikes on the new (2017+) frames. From the factory the Husky shock is much better. Especially on high speed hits and G outs.
After revalving, the PDS works really well
I advanced the left cog one notch. They WERE even, before, so now on unequal notches.
Put on a pleasant 250 miles today. A friend and I made another attempt at a trail that has thus far eluded me on two wheels. It's a great place to snow machine and ATV, but on two wheels, conditions have to be just so. Once again, todays conditions were just no! Too much recent rain, and even more of a mud hole than when I tried it a week or two ago. So, we turned around and did a quick spin out a road I've already posted photos of, so nothing new here. My buddy had shit to do, so when we headed home, he headed for the barn, and I peeled of to check another spot I haven't made on a bike. Same story, mud hole. OK I give up, and head to old reliable Hatcher Pass, and hit a side road that was still snowed in when I last road it. All clear and headed back it, to see how the bike did going slow over rocks. Unfortunately, had to stop a bit short via a locked gate, as a section that used to be open, is now being actively mined again. Still a good rock crawl test, and I think another tooth or two on the rear sprocket is in order. I thought the 14/43 combo was the ticket for the 18" rear, but rethinking that now. All in all, a good day!
End of the trail. Used to be able to go beyond this point, but the mine site is now active again.
Up the slope above the bike, you can see the switchbacks that lead up to the old mine entrance. Tough people, doing tough work!
The view down the valley, that leads up to this spot. Still rather stark in this area, as it hasn't greened up yet.
The little lake/pond at the top of the pass is almost ice free.
Using the DR for scale, here is one of the snow cuts still along the road. At this rate, I'll be surprised if it completely melts before it starts snowing again!
