  1. It’s not okay to walk up to an acquaintance at random and start a conversation with “I’m not sure how I feel about your beard”.  I didn’t ask.  If you have a negative opinion on something about me that isn’t constructive, keep it to yourself.  Also, I hope you have explosive diarrhea while far from a restroom sometime in the near future.

  3. Achievement Unlocked

    I have reached a bit of a stress peak in life, and so far I haven’t lost my shit. Work is chaotic with a high tide looming in my peripheral. Relationship is in full swing. The mom taking over my house situation is still going strong as well. I feel like a real life grown up.

  5. I had few hours to spend on the CL, and I got it pretty close to ready to ride.  Chain, front tire, brake and clutch cables, fuel petcock, fork seal dust covers, front fender all installed now.   Just need to install the new coils, blow out the fuel tank, install the fuel lines, and drop in the battery. There are a few other tidbits I need to get to sooner or later, but they won’t keep it from being a runner.

  7. Unsolicited advice for anyone new to old motorcycles

    I’m not any kind of expert on motorcycles, but I feel like putting this out into the universe….

    So, maybe you’ve recently become the new owner of a vintage motorycle.  If you aren’t overly mechanical and haven’t owned anything of the sort before, there are some things to consider before tearing off into the world on your new fun-machine.  It’s important to take some time to become familiar with your motorcycle and its mechanical condition.  Pick up or download a manual for your bike.  It wouldn’t hurt to search for a forum for people with bikes like your own to answer any questions that might come up. Learn the type of oil it likes, check the oil frequently, the kind of spark plug it uses, what tire pressure you should run.  Check the tires for cracks around the sidewalls, check your chain to see if it needs adjustment or lubrication, lube any cables that seem stiff (clutch, throttle, brake, any applicable), check to make sure all the bolts holding your bike together are torqued to spec or at the very least tighten them and check them once in a while.  Learn how to set your ignition points if your bike has them.  Learn how to adjust the valves.  Being self reliant is incredibly beneficial to a motorcyclist, especially one who rides a bike with a long and unknown history.

  9. I got a call this afternoon from a buddy who recently became a vintage Honda rider. He’s new to riding and old bikes, and he has to rely on his CL350 now for transportation. I try to help him whenever a bike issue arises. This time he got a flat 10 miles from town on his way to Fayetteville. Luckily I had a spare tube and was able to help.

     
     
  10. Things have been busy the last few weeks.  A death, a few birthdays, a bit of family time, and wrap it all up with me getting some sort of illness.  My teeth chattered last night I was shivering so hard.  It’s just an achy, feverish, hell of a good time.  But I did wake up with a cat in my armpit this morning.  So, it’s not all bad.
