I left with #shovel running great , heading to #tailofthedragon via 81/77/40 interstates , after getting sick of the 81 I went onto the 220 , anyway after a couple hours rain started along with darkness , as goin through Strasburg VA ( see pic of last post) Istopped at the old mill for grug n a few beers , the night was great , as I got offered a bed for the nyt , why woukd I say no its only a mile down the road I say , after my host bought me a shot or two ( he was smashed ) I followed his car ( big mistake ) next flashing blue n red , so sobriety test ... fail ... breatho...
Fail .. so in cuffs I was , and what I thought was a local lock up noooo.
45 min drive to a JAIL ! Mind you these guys were pretty happy with themselves snagging an aussie as never had one before , so I got to see a magistrate n wore a lovely orange uniform for 14 hours , not the best fun ! But im all good in NC after running the gauntlet through Virginia with 3days of rain.... oh and have a date with court blah ..... so no need for ass kickin as im quite good at kickn my own lol

Pre-Ride Checks

 First thing I always do before a trip is a run with the Battery Tender to get that battery up-to-snuff.
I check the push rods, take a look at the points/condenser...and check the tires and air pressure.  I adjusted the chain a touch.  A twice around shot of my Amsoil chain lube (I like best).

My mousetrap (clutch) wasn't goin' all the way forward on some operations - so I adjusted that a bit - lubed the springs and all joints with my Lincoln Spray Grease - now everything works all nice and quiet !  No squeaks !  I removed both plugs - and they look exactly the same, you can't tell which cylinder they came from - but I switch 'em anyway each time.  Oil level is good in tank and tranny(just about 1/3 way up the throw-out bearing).

"Unfortunately we have some sad news about Fish Creek Bike Meet 2020. The event has been cancelled at it's original location due to COVID-19. We were expecting too many people in one location and the state of New York did not like that very much. BUT, The party must go on! We will be doing Fish Creek Bike Meet at 84 Dyer Switch Rd Saratoga Springs, NY 12866. It will start at 4 pm we are going to have live music. Food and drinks will be up to all of you! We have enough land for everyone to camp out and still do some shenanigans. It will be right on the water so you can bring your bathing suits or not. Do be aware that the drive down is a gravel driveway and can be intimidating to some riders. You can park up top and walk down if you would like. We hope to see you all on JULY 18th."

"Come down to the land of the pines for a chopper campout on the banks of the Trent River in Eastern North Carolina. Luke and Ronni will be hosting a weekend long event filled with motorcycles, pork BBQ, live music, and cold beer. Perfect weather for riding the back roads and showing off your skills during the bike games. Taking place on a secluded 30-acre piece of property, it is going to be one hell of a party! The entry fee is $20 per person which covers the entire weekend of events along with two nights of camping at the Trent River Campground. Hot showers or cold dips in the river are included, so throw a towel and a bar of soap in your saddlebag. The Backroad BBQ Run proudly supports the Swansboro Detachment Marine Corp League 1407. Our sponsors this year are out of control and way more then we could have expected! Must be 21 or over to attend. No Colors. Check out our website for complete information and give us on Instagram."
