Well, tapping the exhaust didn't work well as the end cap isn't uniform in shape. Just gave up and drilled an extra hole in the cap on each side, then safety wired it on and epoxy sealed the holes. Will probably replace with an aftermarket exhaust eventually, but this will do for now.

Also installed some stainless socket head cap screws on the carb float bowl, can be opened while on the bike now with an allen key. Also replaced the gasket, as the old one had stretched out and wouldn't fit anymore.

I think I need to know more about that trailer.
5x10' Escapade, made in Minnesota. I had mine customized as a mix between mid-level features and a few suspension upgrades. 2' galley shelves, true queen size mattress, and 1' forward cabinets.

They only sell high-end models now, and of course they are expen$ive.

Oh, that's perfect. If I could get down to one less wife I'd go nomad.

Went out romping around some dirt roads and orchards today. Bottomed out the forks a couple times. Overall it handled great and I didn’t have a lot of issues with the death wing.. yet 💀. Going from one orchard to another, I was riding about 15mph and I see a fuckin steel cable slung across 2’ high about 4 feet in front of me, blocking the pathway. Slammed on the brakes, front tire knobs caught the cable and POPPED the front end up, bike slid over the cable. It had enough slack to almost touch the ground. Skid plate did its job but my freakin toes got caught under the cable while my feet were on the pegs. No injury, thankfully. Will be investing in riding boots soon.

All in all had a blast. Next weekend the mods start to go on.

I hit a cable when I was a teenager.
It was strung across a cattle gap on top of the Mississippi River levee. Was around 16 inches off the ground.
I was going 50plus mph on a 1971 Honda SL100.
My brother and brother-in-law were behind me. They said it wasn’t a pretty landing.
I don’t remember anything.

Booty shot of the now legal 2015(Scooterbrain notice the tag)
On the Natchez Trace. Took about a 20 mile ride north at a blistering 50mph. Dark thirty before I got back to the house.
Man I don’t remember the bugs being so bad this time of year.

I had my first real bike ride since my little wreck 6 weeks ago. Rode my scratched up Burgman scooter 80 miles to Costco and back. Packed $240 worth of groceries home to the bride.

It was great to be upright and cruising. My Son, Jake rode part way with me on my TW200... I'm legal on this thread.

Either that Burgman has lots of storage or you buy expensive stuff. If I run to the store on my bike with a backpack I usually only end up with $20.-$30.00 spent. Another way a bike can save you money.

When I go to Aldi's I use a book bag for a shopping bag when it's full I'm done...
I check out toss it in the trailer and go home
