    Birthday ride

    Treated myself to a birthday ride. Only decent weather day in a while thanks to lots of lightning, and snow near this elevation forecast for next week (7500 or so). Yikes, I thought this was July. Fun ride with great views and full wildflowers and one mountain goat sighting. Turns out the ride was on double track since there are towers to be serviced up here. Not technical, but pretty.

    Took the opportunity to take a glamour shot of the bike. I need practice.

    PS this trip may push me over the edge to get a Seat Concepts from Placerlode.

    2013 (old stock bought new by me in 2015), 700 miles as of May 2016, 14/55 with DID o-ring at 50 miles, Cyclops 3800 LED, tail/brake LED (1157-R45-T: 1157 Red), turn signal indicator (BA9S-G4-32-12VAC: Green 32 Degree 12V), ebay bark busters, ebay wide footpegs, manracks with rotopax, 1 gal rotopax, plasti-dip on all plastics Oct 2015, ebay mirror extenders, 80% trail/20% road, ALL maintenance per manual, BY ME ONLY (more freq. oil changes, reusing orig. filter)

    ...and yeah, the Seat Concepts is a good investment. Last Sunday I rode 235 dual sport miles. It is a big difference over the stock seat.

    5 points for having the best birthday. You, me, the best Beatle, Mr. Le Mans, and that woman that played Calamity Jane on Deadwood.

    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
