Americade/Laconia 2013

Laconia just began, and is on for another 6 days, but thought Id start this...

I never made either, lol....we got 3/4 of the way to Americade, and Bessie started acting up...overheating mostly, and a wide open "auto vaccum" petcock....was getting around 40 mpg...much less than normal....I turned back for home, KC and Mrs, kept goin....I got back, fixed all....will add that to another thread to avoid the stupid Timeout (second time Ive written this)...
I'll add my fixes to my Bessie thread. Not enough TIME to do it here.

Whole way home was fine, no issues....almost did a 180, but figured, nahh...been cursed since morning when the mountain was closed for 20 mins due to an MVA.

Anyway...here's Mr and Mrs KC2 at one of the stops....

...with a sick Bessie Girl in the background...

Here's a link to the opening day video of Laconia.....I might still return, but think I may be hearing rod knock...


Hoping it aint rodknock, because I been waitin on this trip for 28 years...
