    Feels great to have her on the road again. 106 miles today. Still idles way to high and takes to long for it to drop, but a fun ride.

    just a suggestion for those autumn rides curtis , do a “ Barry Sheene“ with yer full face helmet so u don’t have to stop for a ciggy, although wise kenny Roberts use to frown at the concept

    Curtis,

    106 miles today!?
    Nice scenery though.
    A bit too cool, and cloudy for me today.
    Looked like it was gonna rain most of the day in the City.

    It was 52F, partly cloudy, 25 mph winds. Lovely ride. That's what they make leather for. And Richard, I haven't smoked in 21 months. Love that battlewagon old helmet though.

    How'd that US bike wind up way over there? Looks like a fun day out. Oh....and is that my D in the background??:D I put more miles on that than the 961 in the past few months.

    That is awesome. Closest to me is Billy Joel's private collection. About 65 bikes. I'd be happy to ride there with you when you come by. His personal mechanic will open the doors for us if it's closed and if the Piano Man is there, he's a very nice person and would be happy to chat.
