Did an oil change, chain lube and adjustment, sparkplugs, adjusted clutch cable, and installed a stem nut clock I recieved in the mail today.
Then took it out for a test ride for a little bit.

I put on a front fork bag, then took her on a 200 mile trip, across the state line and back.

I rode mine to my MSF course, then did about 12 miles in a parking lot on a program loaner Suzuki 250cc, then after 5 hours got back on my bike and sighed. Felt so good to be on a comfy cruiser

I put her through her paces and she performed as desired, as always, leaving me happy, tired, smoking a cigarette with a smile on my face.. and yes I am talking about the bike.

Skulz..it ain't just a bike thing to me

Left it in the garage, away from the cloudless sky and 80║ F temps...

When all think alike......no one thinks very much.

Saturday I was out to Casa Blanca School in Bapchule for a small pow wow on the Gila River Reservation. 41 miles out, pow-wow until 10 PM, 41 miles back.

Gave each of the kids a quick ride up the road and back. Got my fiancÚ on the back for the first time ever. We're over the weight limit but it seemed to ride just fine.
