Fantastic day out yesterday.

Well we went to 70+ degrees here in St. Louis yesterday. Myself and a couple of buddies went on a good ride. Right across the river in Alton Ill. is the beginning of the Great River road, that runs just a few feet from the Mississippi river for a good many miles. There are several towns on the RRoad and they have become tourist destinations and day outing destinations, with restaurants, bars, antique shops wineries etc. It's about an hour ride up to a town called Grafton, so we took that cruse. Stopped when we got there and had lunch at a Hotel Restaurant and hung out for a hour or so in town and took in the sights before riding back.

Then when I got back I went down to my local bike bar which is conveniently located just 5 blocks from my house, everyone was out, I stopped counting when I got to over a hundred bikes on the parking lot. Saw lots of folks I haven't seen since the last of the good weather last fall.

Had a great day. Went out this morning as well, but it was really windy and came home quick as was getting blown around pretty good.

Tomorrow starts the beginning of the tear-down of the carb and the installation of the jet kit, all new gaskets needle seat for the float etc. I figured if I was going to teat it down, just to go through it completely and do it right. Also got three sizes of pilot jets separate from the DynoJet kit.

Hope you all had a good weekend too!

Can't ask for better than 70 degrees in February lol.
beezer and Mr. Johnny... like this.

Glad you had a good ride. Snuck in a few miles myself and found a new destination to head toward next time I ride.

Plan for tomorrow and live for today.
