Thread: Spring Fever

  1. #1

    Spring Fever

    Great to see so many bikes on the road in northeast. Its been a mild winter, but the last week or so of 70 degree weather really seems to have motivated people to get riding, including me. My '58 and '65 Pans are both coming out of my basement today, where they have been hibernating for the winter. Also planning to get a plug and fix the tire on my Dyna, which has been sitting flat with a nail in it since I pulled in from a ride last fall. Tells you how busy I have been......hope the it stays dry in CT. Its looking a little ify today. I'll try to get some pictures up if I can.

    Dean, about time. Missed riding with you over the very mild winter here in Connecticut. I have to get some miles on my 1955 Moto Guzzi 250 Airone before the Motogiro a month away. My Knucklehead also needs to stretch its legs a bit more.

    spent the winter waiting for the big storm that never came, so the bikes stayed warm, dry and inside. Enough of that!!

    it was great weather for riding this week up here in Ontario, Canada, had my 46 Indian Chief out a couple of times, it was a good test to see if I did a good job of putting my carburetor back together (this was the first time I had ever taken one apart and it seems to be holding up). I put on a couple hundred miles this week, bike is running great,

    Ha! ABSOLUTELY Big! After being out of power for 5 days last fall, I finally got a generator. That means no power outages for awhile either :+)
