The day after the Handbuilt show, Quinn showed me a great time. There was swimming in Barton Springs, shooting skeet, and an amazing dinner at Lamberts (thanks again Richie). The whole squad but me went out for more drinking after dinner. I decided to hang back with the dogs and get rest for the […]

Global warming isn’t real.
This past weekend Steve and I rode out to the Keystone Collective show in Lancaster, PA. We took a roundabout route and added an extra 50 miles of backroads to the trip with all kinds of terrain, especially gravel. I love riding along the southern edge of Pennsylvania, but exploring new roads/trails was awesome and […]

Prices were all over the place. Total junk barely rolling with half the engine missing, selling for $2000. Nuts. Then there is the super clean 2nd year with the bassani exhaust, the dude said he sold for $3500, but I think he lied to me, he was a dick. Then the dude I bought a […]

My 500 has been running pretty solid, but over the last few weeks I’ve been fine tuning it. I pulled the carbs last week and did a bench sync, which helped a lot. This morning I did a full tune up and then decided to take her out for a ride. I was on my […]
