I AIN`T gotta work on it today :D
I`m going RIDING,
Dennis

Think I`ll Lean Left on that new Roundabout @ 27 & District Line rd.
Wonder how many laps I`ll get ????
There's a swanky neighborhood not far from me that has 3 of them in it, kind of in-between different sections of the hood. I will run through there and do some practice laps as often as possible! I need to run them in reverse some too...

My bike ain`t got reverse ;)
Dennis
I mean instead of just left hand turns like Nascar, I'll go in reverse and practice right handers too!

I got headed to town for some gas and remembered I didn`t have my mask so I came back home & put it in my pocket...
BUT that 6 miles ride satisfied my yearning for a spell...
I`ll ride in a bit,
Dennis

It`s BAD when the only thing you can come up with is " I need gas" for a reason to straddle the saddle ;)

The casino in the next state over sent me a coupon for $25 to exchange for gas/food. That's enough for a fill in the cage, buuutttt Shadow don't use so much. I called me brother and asked he wanted to get some free food/gas. He had a similar coupon.
So we rode over, got the gas, a sack full of drinks and jerky. Then came back home. Full day ride.
Edit: I was just addressing the excuse to ride. We didn't do that today :p

Today I installed a 2nd brake light I built yesterday.
I made the light out of 5/8 tube and flat stock to accept these
LED Side Clearance Light
I used this Strobe:
It's mounted on the rear/center seat bolt and the components cost less than $20.
Ass'y off the bike

Indeed! I try to take a ride to no where, every evening, after dinner.
I usually do an hour or two on 35 MPH back roads, usually around the water.
It's been very therapeutic for my grief.

Decided to chop some foam out of my OEM seat to give even more extended reach than I already have, I’m 6’3” with longer than average arms so fitting a Shadow 750 has been a fun task, currently using 4” Scootmods forward extensions and I took an inch out of the back butt section of the seat, why I didn’t do this earlier is beyond me! Fits me like a glove now, scooped out the seat just before it slopes up to the passenger area and squared off the back rest, OEM cover stapled right back over without issue and can’t even tell I modified it unless you sit down.
I didn't like getting that intimate with the fuel tank so I made new brackets and moved my solo seat back to where I like to sit. Almost on the rear fender. This along with 2 inch forwards give me plenty of room to stretch out.

Left her out in the yard under the tree, it rained last evening, so my gloves, helmet, glasses & my baby got wet...
So this morning, I hung the gloves over the grips to dry, the helmet was "round side up" so it`s dry inside, and the glasses I hung on the clutch lever...
That`s it, That`s all I did with my baby today, > > > > So far

Unhung everything, put it on the rear fender/saddlebags, Straddled the saddle and took Ann some orange juice to drink, She`s cutting grass...
I LIKE riding through fresh cut grass :D

Parked her in her spot under the polebarn this time...
it`s overcast like it might rain, with ONLY 95 showing as outside Temperature,
