Remember my old Shotrod Sedan project that I sold before my move?

I was perusing CL this morning and had to do a double-take. Looks like someone built the car I had in my head. Seller is just a few miles from the guy I sold mine to. Stance was right. I even had those taillights and mirrors for mine. But it's not my old car.

I think I just lost my leverage to keep you taking pics.... someone sent me surveillance photos, I guess your favorite monte owner is building a place to move next door to you?

Yesterday and today had intermittent showers. I burned more brush piles and mowed everything. I'm pretty well caught up with yard/farm maintenance for the week. Took a quick blast to the next town over for evening libations. The new Trailtech dash has a freeze-frame function for high scores. I stretched it out on the last leg home.

I think it might do 70 but I ran out of level straightaway. Can't expect a whole lot out of 19hp. Anyway, much improved over the previous 55mph top end. I'm going to lean out the jetting too. It wanted to blubber a bit above 6000'.

Also, verified that the 10L drybag trunk has plenty of room for 12.

If any of you guys have much real world air-cooled bike knowledge, I'd be curious to know what a normal head temp should be as measured at the spark plug washer.

Supervibe got a new set of Pirellis today. I could have probably limped the Ohtsus to the next oil change but the RR inner edge was getting pretty scalloped and I was getting tired of the drone at 20 and 60mph. Took some extra time to degrease, scuff, and repaint the wheels too. They were showing their...experience.




I replaced the "non-serviceable" Ujoints too. The front one was worse than I thought. I'll feel better being able to squirte a little grease in there going forward. Since I lost a little gear lube, I serviced the transfer case again too.





Brown dog hung out for a little while. She wasn't much help but she pretended to patrol for a few minutes.



And if anyone was curious, these obnoxious buttholes are still stalking me.


Last time I saw them all together I counted 14. But this week I saw that 2 of the females had chicks with them. At some point I don't think my neighbor will notice if I harvest a couple.

I guess its probably safe to discuss now, as i'm finally gettting over the trauma. I was down watering my fruit trees last week and got attacked by a mountain lion.

It silently crept out of the tall grass behind my shop and immediately went for my femoral artery. Clearly, an apex predator. I somehow managed to subdue it. Brown dog and I tried for almost an hour to domesticate it, but it was hopeless. We had no choice but to relocate it to a friend's wildlife refuge (farm). God have mercy on the rodent population of Canyon County.
