I’m heading out after lunch for a drive by birthday celebration, then hitting the road with a buddy for a few hours.


Bike is all shined up.



Sitting on my VTX making vroom vroom noises.

We are riding today! No where in particular. Just got Eve the 1100 back on the ground after doing her clutch and fork seals and my wife is itching to go ride!

The dust was blown off, battery charged, and after a sluggish start it fired up after a long winter(s) nap. Did 120 miles down the highway and back to shake out the cobwebs both on the bike and myself. We both seem to be working fine.

I Just got back myself...
When I hollered from the door, "Hi Honey, I`m home" Ann said " It`s about time, you`ve been gone all day."...
No truer words spoken...
I left just shortly after I posted this morning :D
Yeah, after church, I stopped in and tried to get Crossbow out, but he wasn`t feeling up to it, so I followed the front wheel with NO direction or destination...
Burned up two tanks of gas today, I filled up twice anyhow, andit hadda near full tank when I straddled the saddle = it was 56 degrees...

`twas GOOD to get out and ride with Y`all,
Dennis

Some of the roads I rode today, have grass growing in the cracks =>
That tells ya how much traffic they see :D

Lets do it again, post up folks...

Passed my course in Friday, got my license on Saturday, surprised my son when I brought the bike home. We headed out just north of the city. Got caught in a rain storm with high winds pushing the bike all over the highway. Great way to get my first ride in. 😁.
The rest of my time has been practicing slow manoeuvres and trying the bike out up to 120 km/h.
Also, the exhaust tone is really nice.

NOT SURE how that empty post got sent. BUT Punxsybob - - OMG, are there STILL dirt roads in Chester County. My PSU roommate and I and more of his friends than would believe were all over them there roads in my 1962 Austin Healy Sprite. PS - We graduated in 1967.
His family lived in Birchrunsville.
Thanks for bringing up those memories.

Those roads were near Marlborough township, between Downingtown and Kennett Square - Horse farms. I will need to go riding around your old stomping grounds one day to see if there are dirt roads still.
