Stop light memories,,it is time to ride..

I think most of us will agree that this has been the worse start to a New Year I can remember..Every turn it's been how bad it is and how bad it is going to get..So many issues with so little time..when you fall into the mind set bad shit seems to hunt you down..Not much is changing other than it's time to ride.. Spring is nine days away, the suns out and daylight savings time is in..fire them up it's time to set your souls free again..

I did just that last night..just a couple of hours..No place to go, no place to stop, nobody to see..the Shovel, the wind, the cleansing of the mind..Hit the main road and headed into town. Did a back street run to main street..A little cool out so a stop light run will work..the shovel don't like hot day stop light runs..

A stop light run for me is like going to a sporting event..it is not about the game but the people in the stands..in this case in the cages..maybe even like going to the zoo..Expressions or lack of,, Five year olds with faces glued to the windows..How many end up finding the freedom of riding after that day..Granny's who will not look over fearing the worst,,Granddad who gives you a wink and a thumbs up..The blond with the camera phone, the gangbanger with the weak eye..expressions...

Life is about our expressions..the good, the bad and the meaningless..For the most part none of it matters,,time to ride...

life - as of late - is about takin' in water and dealing with it's aftermath - so now, instead of riding this weekend I'll be tearin' into a furnace - bearings on the blower motor got funked up - tried wd-40 as a quickie fix - dried everything out and gunked the bearings damn near beyond repair - the plan may be to degrease with oven cleaner - the blue, fume free, cleans everything including your shower and trashes none of it - then hit the bearings with lps-1 - kick ass electronic cleaner and lube - maybe I get lucky - ornot

Chain lube on the bearing Clickster...Chain Wax works wonders..but you may have to go to the Harley shop to get it..

I hit em with 3 in 1 - it's spinning and the oil is working it's way around and in - hoping it's not a "remove and replace" - gotta take the duct work apart to get to the motor - whatta pain

got 90 weight in the garage - might not be the best of ideas but - what the hell - I've been makin' this damn thing work for almost 2 decades - I'll get it to go
