After working on it aggressively for 6 months. Then waiting for a new seat. Then waiting for the damn winter to end... I got the EL out on the road for its first long ride today. Over 100 miles and it was just perfect. Not a hiccup. Still getting used to the clutch, but it's me, not the bike.
Stopped for lunch w. my better half who was on her modern bike.
And while we were sitting there, another AMCA member riding his 34 VL rode past and stopped. He did a great double-take when he saw the Knuck sitting there and you could hear him making the U-turn up the road. Nice!
What was really interesting is that he was at Oley and saw the 8-bolt Harley motor that is being discussed in another thread. We had a great discussion about that. I think it's one of the best threads I have followed on AMCA.
It was definitely a perfect "ride 'em don't hide 'em" days.
Picture at our local drive-in snack bar... just before the VL arrived.
