    Went past the area Saturday.....Well within 40 mi. or so heading to Bastrop. I may have to look into this later on because it seems interesting enough. Don't think I'll saddle the old girl that far though for she is somewhat graying about the temples and such, so wouldn't want to put her out senselessly...Besides she doesn't care for crowds being on the shy side.

    Truth is 150 mi. on that Roadster would be utter torture to my back & neck, but don't let my bike know please. Worried about layshaft bearing too. Need to inspect for distance cruises. Lotsa nowhere on those roads. Father forgive me for I have sinned through neglect...….Clear conscience now.

    Over 40 years old I think the layshaft bearing would have long gone by now, mine blew outside my house when I put it in gear when it was 4 years old and just on 12,000 miles, my mate's 850 blew about the same mileage but he was 100 miles from home but rode it home in 4th gear all the way, he had to really ride the clutch in one town when he go stuck at a set of lights right on a big hill.
    Maybe you need to change handle bars if your back and neck are suffering.

    Handle bars can't fix this. I'm not even supposed to get on these things, but then when you have all the fun taken away ….? My old wing ain't so bad on me though it's no fun to ride a two wheeled truck. It has to be pushed into turns too. Seems like it has to be forced over. It doesn't speak to me while I'm riding either.

    MAYBE this year, now that I'm 200 miles closer...

    I picked up a Mobylette moped for the tiddler ride. Picked it up in Davenport. Had less than 600 miles on it and still had the original tool kit and tire pump with a Iowa title. Tires are rotted and the fuel tap is shot and the gas cap is broken. Already have parts on order. Woohoo.

    That should clear off as the front moves through. Still hope you get to enjoy the festivities regardless.
