Almost stranded

Well dismounted my rear tire for the first time last night. Too late to take the tire in, had to wait til this morning. The leak wasn't from the new tire but from around the valve stem. Got a new valve. All put back together now. But I did miss out on riding last night. I'm just glad it didn't happen on a road trip.

Mike,

you missed the best day so far in NE, OH....I managed to get in about 225 miles (mostly local) miles before the rains came. Im still getting used to the GT and my "GT muscles" havent been built up enough yet. Glad to hear you didnt go soft in the boonies...

Hey Neighbors!

Rode the GT to the tower Monday and Tuesday. SO and I rode Sunday too. Not now! I see snow outside and I can no longer see the lake! Got 5,000 on our GT now. What a rush to ride that thing. Can't wait for Winter Deux to fade.

More than 132,000 (recently corrected higher) motorcycle riders have died in traffic crashes since the enactment of the Highway Safety Act of 1966 and The National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966. Be careful out there.
