One of these days we will cross paths. I did about 250 miles on Thursday. Highway 42 out to Vienna, MO, then up to Jeff City and back.Ride to Osage Beach MO to hook up with some of my old riding buddies from GWRRA days. Some from St. Charles area some from Columbia area. One of the couples that moved down here led us on a 135 mile loop around the lake area. Syracuse MO for lunch then back. 90+ degrees but little traffic on the roads we hit. But real signs of our aging crew. 14 GW trikes 4 GW bikes 1 VTX1300 and me.
@SC14 which speedbleeders did you get? Those for the st1300? Any special issues/procedures installing them? Thanks.Today was bad riding weather here in Florida so I decided to install new brakes and change the brake and clutch fluids. Fluid change is due in July but I had the time today. I bought the Speedbleeders and installed them. It was much easier doing the fluid changes. Now that they are already in it'll be quicker every time I do it. I recommend them if you change the fluids by yourself. After the maintenance work I gave it a cleaning. There are alot of places I don't usually get to that are behind the bags. An excellent day in the garage and maybe tomorrow I'll get a ride in early before the afternoon thunderstorms.
I've had mine 5 years and still trying to decide if I need a centerstand.Well, it only took me six years, but today I finally put a center stand on my bike. No one can call me "hasty". Oh, then I checked if my clutch lever was in any danger of falling off... nope, looks good.
Sounds like a scouting trip for the upcoming Meetup in the Mountains.I couldn't take it any longer... too much work and not enough play. Sunday (yesterday) I left the house at 10am and did a 200 mile loop in the Blur Ridge Mountains with Northern GA and Upstate SC. I was all over the place. Really enjoyed sections of HWY17, HWY75, HWY 180, HWY19, HWY129, and many more! My goal was to get out and ride before the rain. I got home around 2:45 and stayed dry.
Let me know when you are NC! I am only an 1.5 hours from Asheville.I Got my new Corbin seat with the backrest on and I will say it made a difference on a 300 mile ride today. I had a little trouble latching it but I got it after I added a washer or two.
Next trip is to Asheville in July with the
wife. I'm trying to get her into riding with me so that I can have a travel buddy. View attachment 44653
