Wrenching instead of riding.

This is a beautiful weekend. And all my bikes took a shit. The FXR has had motor mount / intake leak problems. So I ordered a new motor mount , and a super E kit. And a new throttle cable , as mine was about shot. 

I have been dragging my feet working on it. Because I've been having too much fun riding the shovel. But last night this happened. 

So I had no choice but to get cracking on my FXR. Just got done fixing I take leak. Now to tune it. 

I will ride before this weekend is over.

Before and after

Going thru some pics and found these. 

Thought I would do a little before and after. 

After. Tank and paint , bars , trees shaved internal fork stops, different headlight setup , new levers and MC. Fork shrouds
Top end rebuilt and new cam. 3" primary changes out for 1.5". Mids fabricated. Sissy bar fabbed and different fender , tailight. Completely rewired. New rear wheel with disc brakes. Pipes.    

I'm sure I'm forgetting some stuff.

Solo ride Saturday

I was supposed to ride with Lance and LB yesterday. But I overslept. But still got a good solo ride in to Ranger , and a few back roads that I haven't done in awhile. Of course I couldn't resist hitting FM4 between Santo and Palo Pinto.

Winding Stair!

Lance and I took off for a quick 2 day trip. We went up to Talihina OK and got on the Winding Stair. The Talimena Parkway Scenic byway. Across the top of the Oachita mountains over to Mena AR.
