We had a slight hiccup on the way to the post office yesterday...
Grinding disc exploded. Everyone is fine, except for Jonathan's beard. Its all gone now.

Goldenchain Quickie

Sun was shining, rain was gone, and the road was calling. A quick ride up highway 49 and back before the sun set and the temperature dropped.

Wolf met up with us on the way back, just as it got cold. Perfect timing

The other day between the rain we were able to get on the motorcycles for a quick cold ride up the hill.

After dinner and some beers, we all headed back to Shakey Jay's tattoo parlor, for the traditional European tattoo session

I'm pretty sure Blue Dynamite is smiling too

Almost home as the sun was setting.

Fixing that ol Roadside Repair

When I left DV the other day, I saw that in the very near future I would be in need of some intake bands. I actually had some with me, but instead of change them out before I left, I decided to haul ass home and see how far I could get. Highway speeds were no problem, but the further I got north, the worse it ran whenever I would have to slow down for a small town. And finally by Bridgeport I bought some hose repair tape to help me out over the pass. At that point of the trip I was making such good time, that the last thing I wanted to do was slow down to repair something on the bike!
Either way, yesterday I finally sat down and fixed the shovel head who had been staring at me for the past week wondering when the fuck I was going to show him some love!

It did work actually...

Back together, and a test run to the market for dinner supplies. Bottle of wine to secure 2nd base with the ol lady! I can dream...
Ready for Nor Cal swap meet sunday.
