Changed the oil and filter, final drive, and installed new spark plugs. Syncd the TB again and i think its closer to what it should be. I need a new vac tool but test drive showed much smoother up through 4000 plus. Feels like it was when new. Then i washed it.

Now, sitting in the garage looking at it, watching youtube videos, and drinking beer.

Left in the garage while Louanne and I take a 4 day auto trip based out of Maggie Valley. It was originally supposed to be an FJR trip, but this is 4 wheels as I mend. Since it is for my upcoming 60th birthday I got to choose the vacation and base.

I'm gonna get her carsick on the Dragon tomorrow after filling her up at Country Vittles for breakfast. We will go on the new section of Foothills Parkway after she pukes, then Gatlinburg, then drive through the Park on the way back. Haven't been through the Park since we moved down almost exactly five years ago.

Nothing on my FJR But did drive a car through SMNP with Louanne to the new Foothills Parkway extension that we rode last Novejmber...drove through the Dragon, then 28 east and back to our motel in Maggie Valley.

This was supposed to be an FJR trip when we set it up in February. Oh well. Made motorcycle noises while passing Harleys on the Dragon.

Rode around the Muskokas yesterday. Not too many bikes out there.
Today was an endless parade of bikes and cars along the road in front of my place at Lake Erie, until the heat gave way to rain.

It was 6C and pouring a 150km north of there. Its still 6c and pouring. The spring that never was. This is April weather.

In Texas April flowers bring May showers.

Bad storms rolling through our general area today, OKC predicted baseball size hail as a possibility.
