Will It Last??

We've had a beautiful weekend, though mine was short, way too short due to my working on Friday, very much a rarity for me.  It would sure be a gift if this weather could last through next weekend......

I did get out.....



Thanks to Fred, the Ducati is back in top form.  I really struggled with it a while ago, just couldn't get the TPS set right and according to the expert, I may very well have been chasing my tail.  The important part is that it's running well, maybe better than new.  I've checked and set the valves before, belts too but as long as Fred had it this time.....new fluids, clutch basket, plates, spark plugs.....I guess it should run like new, shouldn't it?  Pull the clutch in and you can barely tell that it's running. :)


 This spot on Double N is always a photo stop...


Since the KLR will be accompanying me next weekend at the Wildcat Mountain Rally, it was necessary to make sure it still ran as well.


This beat up old 335th Ave. once had at least somewhat regular patrolling......the Officer in charge must be on vacation this summer.

Bike #2 that will be attending the rally over Labor Day....


Summer......please don't leave yet!
