Took Sporty for a ride today. Hot around 95F. I gas up before leaving town. (39.8MPG all city)Went West on US 50 (One of my usual rides) Stopped at Cotopaxi for breakfast. (about 1600)
I stopped at Wellsville to take a break. Now looking like rain.
I'm thinking Hill Climb!
I then rode on to Salida. Some kind of celebration going on in the park, but I don't stop. I fill up, I'm not running out today. (44.44 MPG) I then take CO 291 up to US 24/285, and turn North. Take pics of Teeners along the way.
Ride on through Nathrop. Then stop at Johnson Village, have a burrito and a drink. Getting a lot cooler now. I put on my leather. Looking at back of bike.
Where the hell is my tail light lens?
The corners with the screws are still there, thats all.
Looking really nasty to the North as I ride on up to Hartsel and gas up again. (45.0 MPG) Stop at the Bar/Cafe and have a cup of Joe. It's sprinkling when I leave, but I don't put on rain gear. I stop about 5 miles down the nine to don leather pants. Rain quits in another two but still cold. Still really cold at county line too.
I got a few pics of some Buffs on CO 9 between Guffey turnoff and Highpark turnoff.
look at the Buffalo calves.
Must be pretty tame, as they don't even look when I start bike. Cows, bulls or calves.
I hit US 50 and Head East. I make it home just before dark. And I didn't get pulled over for tail light or run out of gas. HA!
Odie working fine but speedo needle is still jumping. Have leaks developing at Primary, (this is so dinged up I didn't expect it not to leak) Oil fill cap pouring oil (needs new gasket) And got leak at lifter block (will try to tighten but gasket is most likely dried out and need replacing, remember that this bike sat for awhile) Still need to get the right carb on this bike. (this ride must have blown out a lot of carbon, bike is running alot better when I get home) Timing may be mentally challenged slightly, seems to run awful hot. Need to stick points anyway. Tranny and electrical are doin good.
Need new seat (foam is worn out)or at least springs or a hypo of novacaine in the old keister for a long ride on this bike.
