    Nothing special today, just some pokin' around.

    Steeper than it looks with pretty a sketchy surface., that drop to the left was a good hundred feet & a little too close for comfort. The things I do for a photo op.

    And I found what little color is left up here.

    Not the water crossing I talked to @waybill about this morning, but it'll have to do. :D

    Like I said, a pretty casual day but still some good riding. After all, isn't that what a vacation is all about?

    That’s a brand new dealer. They have a fancy fireplace and sofa area inside too.

    Well, started to adjust the carbs on the Frankenbeemer then realized I had to pull the tank so I could get more slack in the throttle cables. Skipped that and went for a ride on the thumper with @Matt fe2o3 on his new Big Orange. Had brunch at Alice's then headed out to the coast to do a couple of hours of twisty mountain roads. Nice 200 mile day. Should have taken pictures as it was a beautiful day.

    I'll get back to the Frankenbeemer on Wednesday.

    Just a little bonkin' around on the Sherpa today. Added a bit of padding to the seat and wanted to test it. Not bad.

    Like a year ago... maybe two by now? They built the building, so it was designed from scratch. They’re still off Kanner but east of 95.

    That is correct. I totally ignored my GPS thought it was wrong, and went to their old building. The new building is great! They were really thinking ahead, even down to the parking lot in the front and back of the shop.

    Thank you @sanjoh for the quality LED and the help on picking through my chatter and figuring out what I want vs what I thought I wanted:bow

    simple bridge rectifier and a capacitor. No flicker, bright light and a nice LED!

    edit: @Davebert told me about the capacitor
