Yesterday I made a sissy bar for Cordelia out of scrap metal and took her out for a quick 120 miler today to dry the paint.

so today i got mad at my stupid front leaking pushrod tube base gasket. i tried to seal it with some ultra black permatex. it held for about half a days riding then started leaking again. i guess the little base gasket is just too pinched. it's just so annoying.



so i am gonna fix it right. ordering a damn james top end gasket kit and dk customs rocker lockers come friday.



i know it's easy enough but i was hoping not to take the rocker boxes off.



BUT oh well ...... grrrr

when i get done installing ALL the new gaskets i am gonna burn that old bottom seal in a ritual sacrifice to the motorcycle gods.

Zip-tied my fractured, new, carb support/locator bracket back together. Less than a 1,000 miles as I installed it the day before leaving for the Meet n Greet.

Nothing......... I am riding the lawn mower today when I get back from town with more fuel. Rains every day of the week. You can stand in the yard and hear the grass growing.
