Summing Up 2017

Actually a good year of riding. I didn't go all the distances I wanted to go, but I did go a bunch of them. And, for the most part, its the riding that counts more than the arrivals.

A few surprises, such as breaking a belt in the rear Avon and wearing the knot in the casing down to the fabric. An unpleasant  surprise that didn't dump me. So all good. The other surprises related to how great it is to be able to ride and enjoy.

Rode with UP to two STOWNERS events: ArkanStoc and BRG. A lot of great riding and fun. Rode some new roads at ArkanStoc and experience the failing tire. Got good local service/tire replacement. Kinda pricey, but such is life.

BRG was a lot of fun, as usual, and I broke with the crowd to ride the Heintooga Round Bottom Road and visit Wheels Through Time Motorcycle Museum.

Knock on wood: the Scrambler has been flawless. Now has 18500 mi on it. Trying to decide when to pull the trigger on the DayLong sport seat. Its cold now; maybe its time now.
