    Been on several short rides. Bout 5-10 miles each. The chain is making a rather nasty sounding, bit of contact with the front sprocket cover. Part of why I was wanting to run smaller sprocket(got hosed on that deal, wanted a 20/44 sprocket combo [520] and was sent 23/48 530 set). But that's another story. Anyhow I'll probley end up cutting said sprocket cover to follow the round shape(get rid of whole angled portion). Aside from seat springs needing to soften up it rides great! Let go of bars at 80 n she stayed going strait!!
    Jocky and foot shifter bout work great. No clutch when shifting jockey but quick blip n it drops in/out easily. Hope to put down a 100+miles this weekend but will see how work plays out.

    Several reasons, frame is under 4" off the ground so ground clearance dictated it be on back hoop. I like to do things a bit different and there are not may right leaners out there. Want to stand out in a sea of bikes(think born free or smoke out, lines and lines of bikes) they all lean to the left... It also shows uncluttered side of the bike.

    Been a bit since I've updated! Been riding the snot out of her. Got about 6-7,000 miles down! Running like a top. Have had to work on rear fender but think it's figured now. It was breaking around the weld. I added much more material to the inside of fender to help spread load/vibrations out over broader area. Otherwise shes spot on!
    Getting read to ride to born free 7 this weekend. About 800 miles each way so should be a fun 3 day weekend!!! A pic from last weekends jaunt to the coast

    Just got back from born free 7. Always a sensory overload! So many bikes, girls and vendors. Hard to take it ALL in.
    Good ride to and from and was lucky enough to be put up by the pres. of the iron order mc. Good group of guys, mostly vets, and family oriented. Trip total of 1350 miles in a bit under 40hours! 95 percent of it I rode solo at HIGH speed. GPS speedo averaged 81mph on run home(doesn't count still time, 1 hour).
    Bike did great! Had to slap on a 140/90 16 in place of the bald 130. Bout 300 miles in hit a rough stretch of I5, rear tire made and stayed in contact with rear fender. I notice it when I starred getting sprayed from back tire then Realized it was gas! Fender was so hot it melted backpack and a good hole in 1 gallon can on back! A few mins of work cured that for the rest of the trip tho.
    Best MpG 52; worst 40.5.

    It could I guess, if I left Petcock on to long. Parked fine at Born Free! Otherwise I don't have many chances to park in "lines" of bikes.

    Loren, Johnny, thanks!
    I'm not even sure it up at all. I put stock frame in jig. Cut neck off and rotated neck to 35* from 31*. Technically it was probly dropped slightly. Just looks that way cuz it's so low.
    I got to excited, when building the frame, and forgot to add 3/4 spacer plate on the jig(to make up for the stock channel crossmember). Instead I laid the bottom tubes directly on belly of jig. Winds up only having 3 3/4" clearance at bottom of frame! Only time it's touched has been on dirt roads...where I should even take it!

    Got the seat covered, a p-pad, and a auxiliary fuel holder made. Still ripping like a champ!!! Gunna have to swap this back tire out for another that actually grips, tho it is fun to smoke them rolling up to about 35 mph!

    Back from another blast down California. This time for Escape to Hazzard County 4. Hell of a time and even better ride!
    Meet a couple bros an hour into trip in chico. We rode all the way down hwy 99 just shirt of Sacramento, when they realized they both had forgotten their passes! Doh! 120mile warm up ride.
    Back on the road. Things went fairly well till dark n we had to stop n direct wire a headlight on bros sporty chop(I built for him). Switch went to crap so just hard wired low beam on.
    The bros couldn't hang with cold n stop an hour short of San Louis Obispo. I rode on n stayed with my brother-in-law. Next morning, while waiting to meet up with them, I get a txt sayn Chuck went down but was ok. Made my way to them n wrenched on bike to get it back on road. Surprised how well it held up (not to mention bro). Chuck hardened up n rode rest of way to Hazzard county(120ish miles), inspite of holes in pants, butt, and arm. Must say I'm impressed with him!
    HC4 was nuts!!! Bikes chicks beer fire and music!
    Next morning got up n rolled out...towards home. 10 miles in hit HEAVY rain. Wetted the filter but she pulled thruogh, spitting n pooping from time to time, as I passed big rigs in the mist. Glad I bought a "hipster bubble" b4 I left!
    Many gas stops n miles north, I had ditched the bros, who were not digging the high winds. Bombing down I5, at a 35* angle, from the crosswind. I later found out there was a "small" tornado that hit a short distance from me at about the time I was mashing through!!!
    Aside from the sputtering from rain, she didn't miss a lick, nor need a wrench put to her! Starting to think I have her pretty well dialed in! Must say I was able to out ride bro on a newer (2003) "sprung" Indian, with a big A seat!

    At live oak/Hazzard county 4, ready to head out. Don't look it but 10 min later it was pouring!


    Red sporty in background is the one that went down (on the exhaust side)!
