Other priorities got dead in the way of Motorcycle anything today...

After the inlet air conditioner duct change out and Donkey feet trimming, we got into gardening...
However although I ain`t motorcyle nothing, our AC is blowing a Cool 63.6 degrees with the new duct AND our donkey is walking much better now too.
THEN the W word came into play, Work!
I got with the neighbor who plants for 4 families to eat outta...
We harvested two kinds of peas, okra, two varieties of squashes, cucumbers then more peas
Them 9 rows are ONLY 200 feet long...


BEFORE the garden harvesting and plowing peas, I Had to reinstall a pulley on the mower deck what the factory forgot to tighten, and the dealer didn`t and put the belt back on it, for him and afterward rinse & clean out the sprayer...
After he buys fittings I Gotta replace on the valve on it tomorrow, as we couldn`t get the old fittings to budge...




BUT, I will ride in the Cool of the mornings, (that`s a GOOD C word @Scared )

Enjoy them New Tires there @chevyman_ky

All I did for my bike today was open the shed and turned on the fan to cool it down in there after a week and a half of being closed up in the heat, my Panton thanked me!

In new home!

You will like that tire.

Thanks for the changer info. Think I might get one so I won't have to work on the floor.

It was a great ride. The section along the St Lawrence River is fantastic, beautiful scenery. Some nice twisties on the northern portion, which my buddy on his sport tourer was very happy for, we caught up with him at the end of that road.
