    Well, folks, lots have happened over the course of the past couple years and...

    Out of time and convenience (when I've had moto shenanigans, which I've tried to keep up) I've resorted to only posting on FB pages.

    Which has resulted in me neglecting my membership and position here to help moderate. I'm sorry for that. And it's sad for me too because I love this place and the members here. It's one part of my life I've not nurtured for you and for myself.

    After having a member from Facebook ask me to start posting up here, and to encourage others to do so...

    I come here tonight.
    To post.
    To say hi.
    Even got to delete some funny bidness.

    Glad nothing much has changed. Bidness as usual I see.

    Things haven't changed much for me either, just many things happening in my family that have prevented me from getting away for long LONG hauls in the summer. And many things happening this year that will bring my life into a new chapter that will open my summers back up next year for some more biggins.

    One thing won't change though...
    I'm still an insanely passionate moto rider and tinkerer and still flying solo and all while I've seen moto mark many milestones without failing since the charging system overhaul I did.

    I've taken plenty of small ride outs and I'll try to go back to post some reports and interact in others' threads. Sometimes maybe say hello more in chat.

    For now whenever I post in th FB, I'll keep this place in the forefront and post here at the same time.

    So... with that said:

    Near 80°F in the Doodah today and I finally have VFR clothing to wear thanks to a gift from a local friend.

    Moto and me still be kicking it in the Doodah for sure. Hope you all are too!

    Yeeeeeee heyoooooo peeps!

    Heck yes! So super happy to be racking up the miles and moto still going strong! And hopefully some spring break shenanigans!

    Well... for the most part!

    Battery said NO!
    Even with my trusty ANKOR pack saying NO! I had to leave it on for a long while.

    Think the sudden swing in temps around lunchtime zapped my ol' battery.

    20200203_172811.jpg

    Got moto going after MUCH charging and coaxing starter button and flipping the throttle at just the right time and waiting and let it run a good long while before taking off. Even my phone battery went from 25% to dead in 30 seconds of exposure outside.

    I didn't know whether to laff or cry LOL

    20200203_172845.jpg

    But because of the also trusty Roadstercycle R/R and OEM stator upgrade job I did to moto a couple years ago, I was certain once my battery got juice that it would charge up on the way and get me home just fine.

    And it did just that.
    And yes, always laff after a couple seconds of "AGAIN?!"...

    ALWAYS.
    LAFF.
    ALWAYS.
