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.

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!

Mid fifties and sunny in Princeton on Saturday. I threw the Jul on the back and we rode to New Hope - so did eveyone else. Before setting off, knowing it was beautiful out, we decided to count how many bikes we saw during our trip - 47, including mine. LOL!!! It was great, I even found decent throwing knives at a shop called "Guy Stuff" there in town. We went to Marsha Brown's for dinner and I got oysters for the first time ever. They were fantastic but they make your beer/drink burps smell NASTY!!! Back home Jul was on the couch with her whiskey and ginger, she'd let one rip then go "OH MAN!!" LOL!!! It was a fun day...
