Ernie - you think the ice will melt in time for you to get to HM?

A bit chilly up your way - hope you're staying warm.

Yeah Ernie, we are iced in also. But yesterday it was 50 here.

Goofy winters for the last few years. If you remember it snowed 2 years ago on the day I was to leave for HM. This picture was the Tuesday before HM9



Hopefully the frozen north will thaw by late March.

Hi guys.....

Sure, we'll all make it to HMSP, but the "starts" often make for a first day chilly ride. I remember the snow of two years ago and can remember many times riding to HMSP over Mt. Killington and Mt.Pico when the roadway was dangerously icy and the ski slope parking lots were still full with cars and early morning skiers. One year, I decided to go the southern route through Brattelboro and then up/over the Hogback to Albany...only to be turned back by an unpassable iced-over mountainous Rt.9...
Maybe "one day" I'll get smart and either move south, or get an all season MC-trailer and simply take the "clean/dry" eastern Interstates,,,but then I think, motorcycles are for riding not trailering,,,so the sometimes questionable and/or dangerous riding conditions just keep me all the more vigilant..!
Still I hope we all have a SAFE RIDE no matter how we get there...! It will be truly great to see all you guys again,,

Best regards all...Ride Safe...// Ernie in NH

So, spent part of the warm three day weekend pulling the body work and tank off the R bike, replaced all of the rubber lines inside and outside of the tank, and then a test ride today with no leaks. Did an oil change since I had the stuff. My fuel leak was in the line that goes from the drain on the fuel cap, the rubber line INSIDE the tank before it connected to the fitting on the fuel pump plate. I also found some really scary wiring with no insulation from the plate to the fuel pump so I unsoldered them and heat shrunk the power wires.

On my list of things to do is adjust the valves (bought the set of 4 feelers), replace the left side cam tensioner with the new/improved part, flush the brake fluid and replace all the brake pads.

Depending on work and a Disney Cruise I may wait till HM to do that stuff, statistically there is always a rain day, and I know I'd have plenty of supervision.

Cleaning out the parts cabinet I have a K bike fuel filter, a set of hoses and clamps to replace it.

I suspect it should have read as 'Heat Shrink'. Used to slip over bare wire (or joints, the sleeving is then warmed with a heat gun and it shrinks to 50% of its initial diameter. It therefore provides a good seal.

May have been a hacking attempt.

Jim is checking it out.
