Mid-Summer Thoughts


Today is August 6. Itís about as mid-summer as it gets. Iíve had a relatively laid back summer, so far; but I think itís about to get a good bit busier for the second half. The Tramp in me is awake and is wanting to stretch his legs. The trip up to New England woke him up and now, he doesnít want to go back to sleep.

Tomorrow, Iím riding up to Indianapolis to go to El Corcel and have a Burrito Loco for Dupper (or is it Linner?) with RD. Iím also going to borrow his bearing puller; that way I can change out the bearings in the rear wheel for the Cussedíem. I donít like the disc rear wheel that it came with and I have a cast spoked rear wheel for it. I just have to change out the bearings, which Iíve had for a few months. Iím also thinking about hitting the Swap Meet in Springfield (Ohio) in the morning. The catch is that Iím broke this month and even if I see some smokingí deals, I donít have the money to buy anything. Still; I like Swap Meets, even when Iím just looking and Iím curious about what a Waldeckís Swap Meet is like. They hold one in Springfield about 4 or 5 times a year, but thereís always been a reason I couldnít make it to one. Iíve been to a variety of Swap Meets in the Northeast (Mass., Conn, New Hampshire and New York), Colorado and even Florida during Bike Week. Iíd like to see what a Swap Meet in Ohio is like.

The WVBR is coming up in another week and a half. Thatís my favorite rally. Two Wheels of Suches is my favorite campground anywhere, but the WVBR is better in an ďOld TimeĒ kind of way. Itís purely a camping rally with truly varied but really good people. It has its own spirit and I always have fun there.

Iím really hoping that Dark Horse will have my engine done by then. They got the rods a week or so ago and are building the crankshaft. Andrew (the Customer Service Rep) is on vacation and wonít be back until next week, but he said heíll call me as soon as itís ready.

After that, thereís the Springfield Mile weekend. Theyíre holding Miles on both Saturday and Sunday and thatís something Iím really looking forward to.

After that; well; I have a flock of medical stuff to endure. Blood tests, visits with an Eye Specialist and my Primary Care Doctor, and even my Cardiologist.

I also have my Birthday in September. Iím going to do my usual - go to Aglamesis Bros. and have them make me my favorite sundae; sliced banana discs, strawberry ice cream, hot fudge and marshmallow toppings. Iíll grill a Rib Eye over Charcoal for dinner, then Iíll light off a few hundred little rockets. Since my birthday is on the Equinox, itís a great way to celebrate both the end of my favorite season and the day I entered this crazy world.

Tonight is the Half Mile from Sturgis. I think Iíll be watching it and hoping that Jeffrey Carver wins it. Heíll be on the only XR 750 in the field. That would really tickle me.

Since itís Saturday, I guess Iíll have Hot Dogs and Baked Beans for dinner. That sounds good to me.

Nice again John, thanks for the post. Got back home, again, this afternoon having only spent one night in my own bed through the last month. Will start sorting wires and prepping for the WVBR, fingers crossed.
