Looking good! Rained all afternoon here, so pulled the fork lowers and the highway bar chaps to get ready for warm weather riding.

So do I! We've had almost twice the normal rainfall since the 1st of April and it's getting old.

Hobbled passed her and sniffled. Leg isn't healing properly, will be done longer than expected. But I get to look at my baby and figure out what I want to do to her. Gonna try and have it picked up and painted.

It's not what I did today but someone else.In 1980 this weekend I had an accident on a new Suzuki bike I had bought about a month earlier,this weekend history repeats on another Memorial Day Weekend on my 96 ACE.A car pulled out of a driveway two miles from my house and right into the side of my motorcycle, she said she did not see me,I was not charged but she was,failure to yield the right of way causing an accident .I did not get injured or the others either .Their car had to be towed as it tore the plastic front end partly off ,my bike has damage but not totaled like the Suzuki, I drove it home.My shifter is bent a little,left engine case is dented side cover got lost and the saddle bag took the worst of it.I didn't even go down ,just pushed up on the curb.
