Typically my primary chain needs adjustment, more frequently as the miles pile up. I’ve had them run out of adjustment at 60,000, this one just turned 100,000+, not much left for it. The shot alongside the freeway was after the wallowing appeared and checked air pressure as well as movement at the steering stem, swingarm and wheels to axles. It is what it is.

It gives him a chance to show off his silver crown.

Son, the charging system had started to fail when I left your house, started acting up at the first gas stop just before the Upper Peninsular. Made it across the “Big Mac” and needed a jump start down above Flint. Karma?

A moment in the mouth of the dragon.

On to Ticonderoga.

Ha Ha Ha i;ve had the privelidge of being Pauls tail gunner for 20 years and there is very very little that he can't fix (nuclear reactor mebbe?) with duct tape and bailing wire....He's also kept me from losing my cool when wrenching on my garbage wagon many times as well as being a damn good carpenter. It's mondo cool to work with someone who is so unflappable that you can count on to the end. he is also lucky to have Sprink in his corner and have fun trying to hang with them on a curvy road ha ha. Envy your meet and greets, looks like a terrific bunch of guys !
