Thanks Tom, what were you guys burning down?

Docc, you look younger than ever.   

Perhaps I can try to get there again next year?  

My Sport could use another RedFrame to huddle with!  It will be great to see you, again! :thumbsup:

I still remember the sight (and sound!) of your Greenie disappearing up ahead of me climbing the Tennessee side of The Divide . . . :race:

Where's the social distancing? That BMW might pass on something quite nasty:) Ciao

Photographers posted along the "Dragon's Tail" route did a great job of catching all the bikes as they went by.  This is the first picture in over 50 years of riding of me actually underway on one of

About a week out and I see I started the Sport's shakedown three months ago and have ridden it over 2700 miles. About as ready as it can possibly be and  properly separated from the Waddington Effect

That was halfway (300 of 600 miles ) to Spine Raid.   Have a camper in the mountains on a creek that I use as my getaway pad to sleep and ride from since my "home" is in the flat lands of Eastern VA.  I was just burning up some tree limbs after riding dirt bike THEN drinking a few cold ones.  :bier:  One thing led to another and the few cold ones lit the idea of "why not a fire?"

Had a great time again! The Tenni broke down on the first day. Voltage reg. Thanks to Eric and Docc and Gary and Andy and Rick for sorting me out to do the fix when she gets home. The accumulated knowledge and desire to help of these gents is priceless.

hmmm a balance pipe. Isn't this added?

The pipes are BUB. I'm not sure they're the best possible top end performance, but the thing pulls like a dump truck from 1500 RPM with the Web 86b cam.

Didn't. I will have to replace it. It was determined to be the 'no charge' problem. 

Get a Shindengen Mosfet from here and you'll never have to worry about a regulator again. Have them on the Ducati's.

Having the same Mosfet regulator experience with my 2 V11. Only around 10000m so far, but 14.73 v idling, and the 30amp fuse has nothing much to do. Slipped in a 15amp fuse , just to observe, still there :rasta:

Here's a link to the photos I took during the weekend.  Didn't pull out the camera, just the phone, but had a good time with docc and the guys.

Ciao
