As many as I can! I'll probably keep riding until the end of November, or early December...we'll have to see how the weather holds up.
That's a great photo by the way!

MY front rocker on my knuck has been giving me shit since I bought the engine, turns out a poor weld job took place where somebody has snapped the gallery area.

I've got a hole where the repair was done, also it's porous. Now, the repair may be 60 years old, the guy who owned the engine got murdered in prison in 1969 so.. can't complain to the guy who done it haha.

I'll be out of action for a while, found a guy I know willing to to have a go at fixing it!

I hope today's ride wasn't my last, rode to work and would prefer riding to walking. But then again down here in the swamp everyday is riding season. Somedays are just a little cooler, or a little hotter or a little wetter, however, a bad day on two wheels is better than a good day at work.

(An example I rode the pan home on Friday in a Thunderstorm and enjoyed every minute of it)

Today I rode the Triumph in. Looks like it will be the Ultra for the remainder of the week due to upcoming tropical storm conditions. (The ultra is better in the dark and wet, due to better: lighting, braking, wind/object-protection and heft )

Did some final tuning and had this out for it's maiden ride today...a tribute to the 1912 Rover. It's been in the project stages for about two years. It seems to be working flawlessly and nothing fell off ether (not even me)...I'm pretty pleased!

Beautiful, G. I gape and drool.

I s'pose the tricky bit in riding that is the tendency to lock up and get sideways if you get on the back brake too hard, and to wash out the front end if you're careless with the ultrasensitive front brake.

If here in Rhode Island this coming winter is anything like last winter we'll be able to ride all through it. Hoping it is because I'm replacing the jugs and pistons on my pan and getting a 68 shovel together and I have to work outdoors in the back yard.
