Repairs Done?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on January 28, 2012 by Pat Regan

I picked Bonnie up from the shop today. Numerous gaskets were replaced as were both the sprockets and chain. I figured I would head to the spot where I had to call it quits last time because of the oil leak. I crossed the 59th Street Bridge (now titled the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge barf!) and headed back toward the East River.

I rode through Calvary Cemetery. It is surreal to be in a large cemetery with the view of the city so near in the background.

I headed south and back to the river. A good rule of thumb for getting good shots is…when you see a hole cut in a fence, walk through it.

When I went back to the bike, I was disappointed to see oil dripping. The gasket around the clutch adjustment lever was still leaking, so I took her back to the shop.

The International Motorcycle Show

A friend got me a free pass to the bike show at the Javits Center last week. We went on Friday night. In the past I went on Saturday or Sunday. Friday makes a huge difference as far as the crowd goes. It was nice to be able to check everything out without much hustle.

This big beauty didn’t feel as large once I sat on it. Just after this I bumped into a friend I met at a pow wow in Montana while traveling cross country in 2009.

This is one of Pauly Jr’s bikes.

Norton is back. I sat on this Commando. It may not be the bike for a long distance ride, but it sure feels like fun.
