Sorry about that Jeff. That is what I meant.
Some of use prefer a little more specifics! :D

Had almost 30k on this bike:
Put a tall windshield, passenger floorboards, trunk(made the trunk brackets to fit the stock passenger backrest mounts), and made the bracket for the fold-down rider backrest.

Has most of you know I had a slipping clutch on Fri when riding with Jim. Why I didn't ride Sat, Sun. Headed home via interstates (yuck) but easiest on clutch. Made it home on Wed took till today for internet to be turned back on to let you all know.
Not sure if can make next years as 50 class reunion is Sept 20 -22.

Glad to hear you made it back to Arizona safely. Now to tear apart that clutch and get it repaired. Nice meeting you and hope to see you again, if not next year maybe at the 3rd Annual Gathering.

I glad to be home too.
Who needs a motel? Some of us brought are beds with us.
hebert3007 what you think?






"the last 125 miles to home was really hot going to get one of those Vest but I want it to hold at least 5 gal of water haha." I have a vest here in AZ "the dry heat" . it can dry in a short time so I soak mine in a plastic bag. That way there is still some water in it to re soak it.

Remember when you guys ride the "66" you have a place to stay.

Later
Verne

I'm interested in knowing what you found as the issue with your clutch and what it'll take to fix it. Glad you made it back safely.

We (sidecar Bob and Lynn) got back a few days ago from a 1600 mile round trip from the Buffalo NY area. A big thank you to all those who worked so hard on our behalf. To our road staff in particular, great roads, road captain did an awesome job finding good roads. Our pair of blockers did a great job. There is a reason those three were put at the front and not me!, as a non-Ohioian I don't speak Ohio well enough to understand the confusing road sign...examples: 1) Watch for Children..is it legal in Ohio to trade kids for watches? ,
2) Speed zone Ahead...untrue it is a don't speed zone, 3) and my favorite..Blind Drive..bull hockey, I'm not closing MY eyes.....Thanks to all. We hope to see everyone next year. Bob & Lynn

Too funny! :lol: It was great to meet you. I had no idea, but it makes sense, that a side car can dramatically reduce the mpg you get on a motorcycle.

Glad you had a safe ride home....
