Alley Rhomp

video
I like this hi-lo range switch on the G4 motor.
Tops out screaming around 10mph in 1st.

Gotta fix the shifter lever.   Single Speed isnt always the way to go.
Don't want to piss off my neighbors yet.

While I was out

Beating my KLR to death, I was skipping out on pulling the New Yorker.

Never thought I would see that come out in one piece.

 Maybe my will power of overtaking the stinky cheese helped the movement.



Got the KLR valve shims out and on order.
Exhaust had next to no clearance, picked the right time to adjust.

Next is to fix that nasty carb problem I got hanging me up.
Next weekend.

Saillling, takes me awayy

I thought riding the KLR was bad in the wind.
This beast is sailboat.


So smooth.

Found the top secret DPR Headquarters on travels this weekend.

Arrival

Nothing beats a kickstarter
Havent had the opportunity to use one since Maxton.

Its a bit different as I can start the KE with my hand, different story for the Trackmaster.



My dumb ass broke the key off in the steering lock tonight.
Hoping the key isnt made of too much zinc so I can solder it tomorrow.

Got the head put on and started right up.   Spark plug has yet to be torqued, so riding was limited.

Nothing beats the smell of a 2 stroke.


Especially if its burning Castrol-R oil.

Solid


 ...Weekend


Fun on Lien Rd.    If you are planing on riding the tracks, watch out for dem trains

 Caught a couple DPR misfits at the new (to me) Dragonfly Lounge.
Old guys missed out on the good stuff.  Had to sleep or something.



 Stopped over at the Kv's farm to visit our Chrysler 300.
 Trying to figure out how much can be saved, Motor is at the top of the list.
She is a bit in the deep




It could be worse.



My pops got some work done on the frame fixture.
Ill get a better complete photo up next weekend. 




Hummer motor is completely disassembled.
I would drop it off at Fred's on my way up,

But im a bit loaded down
First WI-MN trip of the year.

What to do

Now that I have my license, so many new options are opened up.

End of an Era

I am now a licensed driver of 4 wheel vehicles.


Doug Wothke told me to dump the girl and keep the cycle only license.
I got dumped and got my drivers license.
I may be a fool.
Most likely.
