Shovelfest IX - Wednesday and Thursday Part 1

Up and gone, before the crack of dawn. I know trailering is lame, but I was short on vacation time, so Mike(Speedjunkie) came by the house and picked me up. He was so excited for Shovelfest that he bought a new trailer and a new truck. We left at 3:30 Wednesday morning hoping to miss the major traffic times and not set-up in the dark.



Well, this little detour and stop did cost us some time. George Dickel Distillery near Tullahoma. Actually not that far from Jack Daniel's place, if you have time to do them both.



The tour ends with a tasting of course. I am fond of  No. 12, drinks like a cognac in my opinion.



You guessed it, we about couldn't find the place and we set up camp in the dark.

Thursday morning, only the die hards around. The Things and their Knucklehead.








The campsite was pretty nice. There are several huge rallies held here.


Kentrrr was here, too. He's now retired and RVing full time.




It didn't rain on the campsite any though the weekend, but the morning dews were amazingly heavy



It's not Shovelfest unless George is cooking up a ton of breakfast.



And Brian won't turn down a meal.



Remember the Shovelfesters that aren't with us anymore. Rest in peace, Bevy.



Cory, Mike, Super Dave, and Dennis.


Thing 2.


Off to ride the country side with Mike.

















Stop for some glamor shots.

Pine Island Parts

Had a blast as always at the local Bear Mountain Chapter swap!

Decorah, Iowa Run

I took this old blacktop A46 all the way east . . . The weather started out kinda foggy and damp, and later turned to sun.  Back roads all the way...dodging Mennonite buggies fresh from Sunday church services.  Their horse-drawn buggies leave deposits - so stay alert or you may squash a clump.
This is a good spot to regroup, look at the map - and hope your bike starts - it did !
Pulpit Rock Brewing ain't bad . . . I sat outside and got stung my a bee.  My arm is all swelled to shit, and I just got the stinger dug out (after 18 hours) I didn't see it at first - but now it's almost tool late.



This DC11 Linkert works great.  It likes it best when the rpms are kept up, so when you see a hill coming - keep it pegged and in the upper power band - no problems.  My starting issue didn't come around on this run.  1 to 2 kicks max . . .
A stop near Bassett, Iowa to adjust my backpack . . . riding so fast, it got all shifted and kilter.  Low beam burnt on this trip - and back home I noticed no tail light or brake light.  This thing only has a 3 wires - so I should be able to figure it out.   Thanks to Shane Einck for the refeshments.  T-Bocks in Decorah has great grilled chesse sandwiches !  The Sugar Bowl wins for ice cream !  


Edison-Splitdorf

I'm working on a WR race motor that came factory with the big, square Edison magneto.  It had no spark, and dad found that this was the culprit.  Ordered one - $75.00 off Ebay - Ouch !
