I got an hour in on the bike today... rode along the Tuckaseegee river from cullowhee to Dillsboro and watched the fisherman... perfect weather for riding today!
Back when I bought my C, it had a Cobra Fattie engine guard on it that I immediately removed. Later I put floor boards on and got to thinking it would be nice to have highway pegs, so I put the Fatty back on and bought some clamp-on pegs for it. I liked the optional foot position, but the Fatty bar grounded out in turns really easily. After looking it over, I decided I could move it up by changing which bolt on the frame I used. I would just have to rework how it attached at the top where it bolts up to the horn mount.
So yesterday I got it all modified and reattached but about 5 minutes before I finished it started to rain. And it has been raining ever since. Now with Matthew heading up to see me, it will be a while before I can try it out. I hate Matthew!
May as well post this on the 'whatever' thread.
I survived a murder attempt on me two weeks ago just south of Seattle.
Paying attention, which is needed to stay alive, I saw a pickup truck in the grass between the three lanes going east and the three lanes going west.
It just didn't look right when he started moving so I slammed my brakes and moved away.
Instead of slowly merging onto the left shoulder and pick up speed before going to the HOV lane where I was, and then the next two lanes over one at the time, he headed straight towards the right most lane. Yes, in an almost ninety degrees angle from the direction of the highway.
If I would not have been paying attention my vacation would have been cut very short.
Instead I had a wonderful 4000 mile ride through Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah, and back to Colorado.
This country is sooooo darned beautiful.
Keep it safe out there.
Any of you guys ever do California Route 36 between Fortuna and Red Bluff?
That was AWESOME!
I hate winter
I hate it so much I hereby officially resign from this coming winter and all further winters to come.
Please join me in my boycott
After I got out of the Army in '95, I decided to stay here in NC instead of going back 'home'. Ohio winters can be bad enough, but no way could I survive a Canada winter! I survived 3 years in Fairbanks, Alaska so yea, I know about cold but that was when I was quite young. I'm too old for all that now lol. I will ride in 100 degree weather when other folks think it's too hot. I'm crazy I suppose
Fishingfoolemjak I love your sig line. My grandmother used to say that when she made a mistake lol
I grew up in Jupiter, FL just north of Palm Beach.. last night I talked to some of my friends who still live there and in true Florida cracker style they're riding out the storm... for everyone in the path, please stay safe and be smart! Good luck to all!!
