about 344 miles total and I would have rode the Mighty CT 70 but...
...but you're not a masochist. I cannot imagine what 344 miles on a CT 70 would feel like, in fact you probably wouldn't be left with any feeling at all (in your arms, legs, back, ass, head... etc... etc...) :D :D :D
I joke about riding the Mighty CT 70 to zeeland, mi and back but seeing that it tops out around 40mph and traffic is going 45 - 70mph I don't think it would be safe to do

once home from henry's I got excited cause there was a package on my porch and inside the box was the speedometer that I had ordered for the gold CT 70. I was soo excited that despite the 27f temp I went out and installed it and the brake lever. it was too cold to do more work on the bike

We had just removed our Christmas Tree lights 1 week before CV19 was announced.

the speedometer drive gear is messed up on the Mighty CT 70 so i put a phone mount on it before taking a short ride. its too windy to enjoy a longer ride, maybe once the wind dies down some i'll go back out

This self quarantine or isolation situation has caused me to do some odd things with the bike. Saturday I took a short ride with the bike, couldn't stop anywhere cause nowhere to sit, so I came home. I proceeded to polish my wheels with chrome polish. Then I kept going and washed the undercarriage and polished the trunk rack. Today I went to take a ride expecting to stop and read my book, but the place I went had removed all of their chairs. So I came home and polished the center stand!!! Then I took a brush and cleaned the dust out of the little black louvers on the vents. This quarantine can drive you stir crazy.

with most everything closed here there isn't many places to go. I haven't started up the wing so I can't go out on it. I had the GSA running last week but the battery seemed very weak so I don't want to go anywhere on it and though I haven't started up the Mighty ST 1300 I think it will have the same issue as the GSA. new batteries for both of them arrived yesterday. it has been fun getting around on the Mighty CT 70 I just wish that my local DQ was open

I'm confined to our acreage, daughter won't let me out the driveway.

she had to make a short grocery run, came back and said our little store was literally empty.
a bread truck from Sara Lee has just left and the bread isle was full from top to bottom with Sara Lee.
Normally there is 6 different brands, types of bread... not now, just a full bin of Sara Lee.

the Deli was in operation, but the employees make you stand way back from the counter....
they make up the dish, put the price label on it, set it down, and they back way up.

we appreciate our grocery store very much, they are doing the best the can to meet this crisis.

she works Saturdays as a Rural Mail carrier relief, other times as a call in if someone is sick/off, whatever.

I rode the 1800 a few days ago, but just don't feel like doing it until this mess if behind us.

That looks just like the 79 GL1000 I had many many years ago. Are you planning on putting the fairing on it, that is if you can still find them.

it's not mine lisa bought it, don't know what her plans are for it but I don't think she will put a fairing on it seeing that she has a 1200 aspy

loaded up some small stuff and took it over to JW's so he can finish up my XL 70, he was out riding around on his CT 70. stopped and filled up the Mighty ST 1300, $ 19.94 to fill it up. stopped on the way home and got a mural. once home I went and found the key for my '85 450 nighthawk, drained the gas, put some air in the tires, and washed it up then went for a ride on the Mighty CT 70
