I went on two rides, one on my sons bike for about 20 miles and one on mine right after for about 30 miles. Huge difference in feel and sound. After having forward controls on mine his feels quite cramped and mine feels great. Either way beautiful day and beautiful rides!

In new home!

Went in the garage and looked at it...been raining here all weekend, looks like it should let up during the week, then come back with a vengence next weekend!

Sheesh...I'd take a vacation day during the week and go *ride* if I didn't have so much to do at work! Ah, well; we've had more good weather in the last month than we've had during that timeframe in the last 25 years that I've been here, so I'm not complaining. Much.

Pulled her off the lift table, and found the bolt for the highway bars/shift linkage had snapped during the winter. Got a temporary replacement until the hardware pack arrives from Lindby. Battery tender said the battery was fully charged, but I had to boost her to get her to start up, might be the tender is shot. Ran her for 10-15 minutes just to get the battery up to full charge and the pipes cleared out from winter storage. Then I cleaned her up.

I walked by my Baby a few times this morning to get around it

I Had to get supplies for firing up the 1964 Sears mower...
Got the mower fired off and rode through the yard until it quit...
Something inside broke...
But that is the reason for riding in the yard insteadda down the 1/4 mile of driveway...

I heard a strange Thuu-UNK when it first fired off, so I knew it wasn`t deemed for mower use again this year without a rebuild...

I got it from the side of the road back in 95, and been using it...

I ain`t gonna let it ruin my day

Pull a plug and stick your thnumb over the hole while cranking Dennis. No compression and you probably threw a connecting rod.
