That lift is similar to my alignment lift.

If that's slammed, I have I must have been over-run.

Well, at least I got to pet it some - pulled the heads and jugs. Base gaskets were totally trashed. I received my pushrods and tappets today. I am going to strip the old black off the jugs and heads and redo the jugs.

It's just a drive on lift. Nothing fancy. Air jacks in the center and a max weight of 12,000 pounds. Can't fit the 4500s and 5500s on it though.

Also got my wrap done. The PO bent the rear exaust flange seal all to hell so it wasn't ever sealed. Leaked like crazy apparently. Everything is closed so I "fixed" the old one with some hammer love and a vise.

70 in Nebraska. Ridding for a month an half. Rode furthest, longest and fastest that I have ever ridden. Great day! Here's to hoping we get another nice day before I put it away for winter.

Lee was watching over us today as we did the annual "Lee Run" a Thanksgiving morning tradition. The group may be one smaller, but we are all that much closer.

Riding North along A1A in S. Florida watching the sun rise as we were cruising...

Rest in Peace Lee, we miss you brother.

Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

Nice sounding ride in mem of Mr Lee. I rode to the groc store on the ultra and ordered a V & H air cleaner cover for my V02. On the Internet on the old Eye- phone. Hee hee.

Took the bike down I-81 to a random exit (Mount Jackson, VA) and discovered a historic wooden bridge by luck - sign at bridge entrance warned motorcycles that track across bridge was only 3 feet, and sure enough when I banged over the threshold and entered the bridge, it sounded like an old wooden roller coaster as my front end swerved slightly when crossing the right track.

There were some tourists inside the bridge taking pics, so when I rolled through with my loud pipes, they were not too happy....
Black Sabbath, Red 100s, and my bike belting out 4000 RPM. And making my wife squeal. These are a few of my favorite things....
