Great day

Great day on the newly painted bike.

Did about 50 miles or so, cruising around. Some rice burner with a big exhaust played with me on 23, we took off.... I was in first looked over, laughed, he looked at me and laughed cause he knew he did not have a chance I think. Got it into 2nd and took off, bike feels great, pulls nice. I think giving the front cyl exhaust valves a smaller shim helps keeping those valves closed.

Pulls good in all gears. Just got to re-mount saddle bags and wind screen - riding season is here.

Garage
Temp hit 76 degree here in North Bama but the wind was a killer. I did 145 miles of winding backroads just to come home and my 15 yr old daughter that hasn't been on the bike in 2 years said "I want to go for a short ride." 60 miles of backroads later we got back home. IT WAS A GOOD DAY!
