 (I save the towel to use with bleach later outside, then throw it)

-Take a hot shower everyday
-Wash Your Towels

-Keep the TV off !  (watch local news once a day)

Take a nap.

Jerry Branch Ported Cylinder Heads



I keep viewing ironhead Sportster heads on Ebay - and the seller describes them as "Branch heads" and they aren't...not even close.  Branch heads (at least all the one's I've seen):

1. Have numbers stamped near the intakes (on the bottom)
2. Have micro, knife edge cut valve seats
3. Have mirror polished ports (both intake and exhaust) 
 Later heads have a smooth intake, but unpolished as much...
4. The head gasket surfaces AND rocker box surfaces 
are both surface ground (parallel)
for straightness and squareness

4 Gallon


This thing started right up after sittin' 3 1/2 months in the cold, with temps below freezing most of the time.  I looked all over for the battery that goes in it.  Not near the Battery Tender with the others - and then I realized I forgot to take it out !  Shit !  It's a 5+ year old acid-type battery, and it hasn't given up yet, since it had 12.2 volts and started the bike.  It's life is helped by the Cycle Electric DG5000 and a steady 13.5 pretty much all the time.  My 4 gallon tank is ready for fuel - and I'm ready for a road trip - but we should all be sittin' tight for now.  

Low Compression

A guy needs about 6.5:1 Compression to run the total shit fuel produced by these places.  (no offense to any ethanol workers our there)  The "pot life" to that 86/87 is about 2 weeks and it's dead.  My lawnmower didn't want to run with that crap...

Outside Oilers

I guess the reasoning was to keep the oil cooler and prevent the oil from gettin' all hot, and fried all over the top end as it was pumped up through the hot cylinders?  You take those old panheads apart, and the non-detergent oil is burnt all over everything... It worked.

My Mama Tried Submission for 2020



This ol' K is just the best bike.  Not quite ready for a trike . . . 
Over back-roads or big-city streets - it's just neat.
Concrete or across the grass . . .
It's nothin' fast . . 
A postponement just for now . . .
You'll get to see it soon enough - anyhow . . 
So for now - just lay low . . 
The future holds many places to go.

At least it has TWO WHEELS


The Cedar River came up a bit with all the snow melt (in 2 days) - and now we're getting some heavy rain to wash all the salt and sand down the drain . . . I don't talk about it much, but the last 3 years, I've been into "fitness" and health and eating right and all that terrible crap.  I sure feel a lot better, but it takes commitment for sure.   I've been tryin' to dial in my new Fezzari bicycle - and with all these new Iowa trails everywhere - maybe get back out there and do some single-track?

It's like a Ferrari . . . But with ZZZZZZs . . . !
