Default kick stand

I ordered a chrome kick stand for my '12 Custom to replace the cheezy black stock one.

No Amish up there by you? I dodge `road apples' every time I ride through Amish country (That and several flats on my SUV from horse shoe nails).

Oh I have ridden through plenty of Amish country. Just always been lucky enough to dodge the poopy!

Went out to the shed, where I store my bike, and checked for critters. Been frigid here and the little rascals can show up anywhere.

Moles are my biggest issue. I find pink insulation here and there from them building nests. I set a trap which cures the problem, til the next one comes along. I blame the problem on a breeding area down the block. Their fur is so soft and fine, suppose it is contaminated with some kind of parasite.

Followed a big cattle trailer up a mountain road, by the time I could pass I was trying to figure out where the water on my face shield was coming from. That brown stunk all the way home.
Oh, sorry thought this was "what did you hit!".

Amish dairy here in Alexandria Alabama that has me scratching my head because they use electricity and gasoline powered farm trucks.......but sells their cheese milk butter and ice cream under an "Amish Dairy" label.....

anyhow.....checked my oil and gassed it up.......put a nice fiesty 45 miles on it.....stopped in to see if my Godson was ready for me to adjust the clutch on HIS Sporty but he wasn't home.
