I did a 180-mile ride to pick up a new air filter for the Valk. It was was hot and windy and despite my great plans of installing it - so many stupid parts to remove it is ridiculous - I was hot and tired and had a nap instead. I had several people come up and want to talk about the Valk as I was getting ready to leave the dealership so that was nice.

Did a 120-mile trip around the block. The new air filter certainly increased my MPG even with a hella strong headwind for most of the trip.

I remember driving through the Sierra mountains in northern Cali, doing deliveries up there and seeing a lot of these " burnt toothpicks". Kind sad till I heard that pine trees need this to happen from time to time. Makes the pine cones " pop" open and distribute their seeds for new growth to happen. .... Not an expert on this, it's just what I have heard.

I went for about a 40 mile ride this evening. Rain is coming in again this next week. It poured rain today but this evening was really nice.

If the rain holds off, I plan to ride the lawn tractor around for a couple hours. We’ve had so much rain lately the grass hasn’t stopped growing.

Rode to work this morning ("throttle locked" for another 11 miles) :p ...riding home after work. That'll be all for me unless it rains later. Wanna take it out in the storm to see if the new wires cured the cutting out in the rain.

Today I made 480 miles on the ST1300 to one of the most beautiful places in the Scottish west coast.
When I got there this is what I had as a view...

It should be this.
But a great disappointment. The road hasn't been kept properly and is now just enough for 1 car, even the passing places are ruined.
