Well my friend Gina and I spent the weekend riding the fifty three around Minnesota. We were supposed to go to her cousins wedding, but we ended up getting lost and just hanging out. It was a blast! It is probably the only normal weekend I will have this summer.
Here's a pic of Gina by the Minnesota sign. It rained most of the day on Saturday.
Here is a pic of Gina checking out Paul Bunyons boat anchor. I broke the prototype oil tank site gauge by over tightening it which is what caused the oil leak on the muffler. Woops.
The kickstand on the fifty three is a repro one, and I think that it was defective. The bike kept leaning over more and more every time I used it. by the end of the trip the bike was leaning over at a 30 degree angle. It must not have been heat treated properly. I will have to fix it before I take it for a ride.
