Suppose to be a 550 mile ride turned out only 500. ( we didn't go for a second dessert )
10 minute break every 150 miles gas and whatever.. Stopped at Garden Patch cafeteria Barnsville Ga. Then went to Dickey Farms in Musella for fresh Peach ice-cream then headed across and over to macon and milledgeville and over to monticello before stopping in juelette for a quick snack at the Whistle Stop Cafe before they close then headed back towards gray and over to eatonton and greensbro and over to watkinsville across the covered bridge and then home to lawrenceville. It was a great ride. average 50-75 mph most of the way, all back roads ( the slab sux!!! )

Anyway, bike ran great except for " I think " I got some bad gas or some water, stumbled and misfired a bit with black smoke just a bit after 1st fuel stop, then cleared up so I don't think anything bad.. we will see right.

Well today I have a low rpm ignition miss in the rear cylinder and intermittent spark at the plugs.

Maybe I shook something loose at the coils when I was doing wheelies the other night.
I know I broke one of my LED passing lamps, it's bouncing in the globe.
I really noticed it not working going home after that burnout. The right side isn't lltt up at all compared to before.

well I found the problem...
Some How, one of the spade ends got worked loose on one of the coils.
I pinched the female spade a bit put some high silver tinning compound on the connectors then used my solder gun to make it stick.
Not quite a soldered joint but kinda a glue..

Well till next time as they say.
