    What did you do to your bike today?

    Today will be: change oil. Clean stainless oil filter and reinstall remove tank, check/adjust valves. Inspect rocker cover for oil leak (was repaired before I left. Can’t see it without removing tank) inspect/replace fuel filter (carrying three spares. The one in it has been in there nearly 30,000 miles now) inspect/replace front brake pads. They were half gone when I left. After Copper Canyon I suspect there’s not much left. adjust rear brake actuation point. Inspect rear subframe welds for cracks. Button back up. Go!

    Lettuce discuss washing

    If you ride enough eventually rain falls. Then the bike is clean

    Deep, slow breaths. Release through your nose. Repeat

    MonDay 5/27 any one planning to ride?

    I know you and I already chatted, but for the rest of you lunks, today was special! Spent the whole day above 9000 ft in the Copper Canyon Almost hit a bull (came around a blind corner and he was standing in the middle of the road, miles from the nearest ranch). Grabbed two handfulls of brake. Both wheels locked, leading to a slight sideways slide. Stopped just 2 feet from the fucker and he didn't even blink an eye. Stood his ground and looked like he wanted a piece of me (pics of him will be on my blog soon) Got hit on the left side of my body and left arm by a large bird. No idea what kind (didn't turn around) but it still hurts like hell Saw a large cougar running through the pines in between large rock outcroppings as I rode by at about 40 mph. First thought was "I need to accelerate!" Had a local in Hidalgo del Parral buy me two rounds of tequila! So...in conclusion....you bastards SHOULD ride with me !

    I’ll be riding Monday Doc!
  10. And I had a hard time believing that Sunny didn’t win the Cool Ride contest, as I was under the impression that I had an army behind me. Apparently not. I asked for the vote totals and they are attached. (I was the top bike)
  11. The last two days have been the most crazy, spectacular riding I’ve ever done. Reminds me why it always pissed me off when riding friends would criticize road conditions after rides. Those folks have no idea. None. Be thankful for any ride you survive. Find joy where you normally find things to critique. Travel is good for the soul

    What did you do to your bike today?

    I rode the entire Apache Trail, including the whole 32 mile off road section. Was insane!
