The Missing Link

I saw Kevin Baas do this so before we left for Davenport I changed the chain on my flathead and stuck the old master link on my springer. It almost got put into use when Jordan's '59 chucked the chain, but it got twisted and ruined.

I used a small piece of rubber hose to hold the link snug. No rattling or shakin around. 

Will I ever use it? I don't know.
Will you be glad I'm with when you need one? Probably!

A Beautiful Day with Beautiful People

This years fall flood run was just a gorgeous day. 75 degrees and sunny. I've never seen so many boats out on the Mississippi River so late in the year.  We really had a great day.

This about sums it up. What a ride!

Some Things....

That I've seen & been up to lately!

Wish I was Brooklyn Bound.

Test n Tune

Jake and I finally caught a free Friday night about a month ago and went to Cedar Falls raceway to make some passes. 

I was pretty happy with the results. I freshened my sportster up this past winter, I knew it was faster, but wanted to know HOW much faster.  11.35@116.7mph !  I'm defintely rusty but maybe I can get back out this fall with some cool air and see if I can get closer to cracking into the 10's!! 
Not bad, pump gas driven daily.
