I'm sipping the workplace coffee this morning. Ordered parts for Ruby Saturday, the last of which will be here Friday. Too bad this is my weekend to work.

Back from Colorado. Coffee is hot and ready. Super B is how the 1980 will roll this winter.
Instead of spacers on the spring of that v mikuni which is like almost 1 1/2" in diameter.

I should probably locate a stiffer compression spring for that slide on that mikuni.

Hurricanes and gas explosions filled our international news tonight. Hope you are all safe and well and enjoying a morning coffee for TGIF.

I'd like to get out west on the bike one day. There's some scenery I'd love to take in like that. Thanks for sharing.

Im getting a mid day cup of Bustelo in. Headache so hope it helps. Ride to work yesterday was nice after 3 days of driving my truck to work, a la Florence. Should be another beautiful ride to work today.

Happy Hump Day!

Currently trapped in daylight working conditions...the Sun burns, people are cranky and traffic sucks. Cold Black Tea helps, but not enough. I pine for Nightshift, where people are chill and traffic is sparse.

Worse, i can not play Reggae music during the day, which should be a hanging offense.
