I see.  That sucks.

Ride on,

Yamaha had a run of bad electrics during that era.  Lots of bad stators on many models.  They're really easy to test, so I'd take a look at it.

Those bikes were bad-ass for their time!  I remember watching a friend do burnouts on his.

It's a little colder here.  These are from early December.  We got a foot of snow.  More expected the coming weekend.

Ski on,

One of the best things about living in So Cal is year round riding season

True dat!

But I like having seasons again.  This is from day before yesterday.  We had a spell of freezing rain.  Rare here, but beautiful to see.

Does anyone know why this law was passed in the first place?  That has me puzzled...

Beautiful work, Todd.

^ That's a challenge!

I explored that option for mine, but decided that it wasn't worth the trouble.  I do like the linked brake system, though.  It worked very well for me.

A sad day for us all.  Hoping they all rest in peace.

Welcome back!

Buy it. That's a good deal on a low mileage truck that will last a long time.

The last one I had took me cross-country thrice without a problem and the first one I owned did it eight times.  All had more than 200k miles on them at the time.  The last did it at 296k miles on the clock.  I got two grand for it and it was an '89.

The 22r is arguably one of the best engines ever made.

Drive on,

Have fun and get pictures!

I ride the 405 LB to Tustin each day. They took away the median that provided riders space to flow through traffic. Everything is now packed tighter together. It's threading needles for 22 full miles each day. In 35 years of riding, I'd only come in contact with a car once. I have three times in a month with this new freeway configuration. And that is now on the 22 and will be throughout So Cal.
Now implicit in the three bumps I've shared with some cars lately is that the problem must be me. The landscape has changed and I haven't changed how traverse it. Most important is patience. That cagers are going to inattentive asshats is a given. I can't control that. So I must address me. The biggest adjustment needed is not in how I sit in the saddle or blip the throttle. The space between my ears is the problem. The last few days, I've paid closer attention to how I'm feeling being squeezed in so tight with cars. By paying attention to my own head, I'm catching my own temper and am able to check it. I've not had any close calls in a few days now. I will need to continue to refine this as, again, all So Cal freeways will eventually become like the 405 and 22.       

^ That.

We adjust, because we must.

Glad you all had a good ride.  Wish I could have been there.

Ride on,

Yeah... 

People are like that.  I still get it from all sides here just like I did out there.  At least some people care enough to say something.  Even if it's only to make themselves feel better.

Glad to see you going there.  (I'm a tad heavy myself these days.)  If you did it before, then you can do it again!

Best of luck,

J~

Pics and video are expected.

Yeah, it's great to be back on two, Todd.  Here it's like living on GMR/GRR and Ortega without the crowds.  I do miss my friends, though...

Looks like a good meal from a good day on the water!  Glad that you're doing well.

Ride on,

J~
