View Full Version : Weekend Ride

Don't want to rub it in but...the weather in Oklahoma this weekend was spectacular and long awaited. I had a chance to take the Knuckle for a spin on Saturday and Sunday (after attending to my families needs first). I had to wipe the slobber off of the tanks and the bugs off my teeth. It was great! My right leg is sore from kicking the bike and I'm loving every minute of it. Best part was waiving to the other motorcycles with my right hand while bouncing on the tractor seat down the road.... man I love those unexpected warm weekend days in winter. Cures the cabin fever. Hardly, maybe this blurb will help you get through the winter up there in the northeast. Warm weather is coming!

Easy Hardly, I didn't mean to make that irish blood start to boil. The weatherman is showing snow again here. I'm back to the winter blues. Sounds like you need to get one of them there electric powered compressors. Or better yet throw the compressor motor out and run it off of a 45 flathead motor. It will start everytime. Would be a cool looking compressor.
