Ride anyone?  455 is freshly paved and we can do the Charles honorary ride. 
Post up and see what we can get

Still prepping the bike. It's been so wet this winter that my brake fluid is the color of Jack Daniels; so I'll be bleeding the brakes tomorrow. Had to have RPM Cycle bleed my clutch Wednesday when I went for inspection: couldn't find neutral/get it out of gear. $50! Should've checked it earlier....bang head

Sunday would have been possible for me, but oh well. Have fun! waytogo

It's partly my OCD, I know, but a spongy front and non-existent rear brake could turn a 200 mile day ride into a descent to the 9th circle of Hell.

Also, I probably need to check torque on all critical fasteners, like the ones that hold on my brake calipers and my exhaust canister.  laughingdp

I take it there was no ride today.  It misted on me all the way to J'ville. 

Looks like Sunday might be good, just in time for my throttle body balanced, shimmed, hydraulic fluid fresh, chain and clutch plate OKed, belts and plugs replaced, brake shoes checked bike to go on an E. Tex twisty route.   Dolph

'Skrat wussed out on Saturday morning so I tried going out by myself after running some errands locally. I thought I'd head up 75 to 455 and go West.

As I was heading up 75 I would run into mist occasionally. When I got North of 380 the traffic on 75 came to a complete standstill due to construction.

I turned around and came home.

It turns out that the wus was right after all!

I know! I almost threw up in my mouth a little bit admitting that!

Feeling any better?
