    Paper is Good

    Rider!!

    The nut behind the bars is more important than the machine. I had a great time on NC129 before it was the "Tail of the Dragon" in 1988 on my 78 R100RS. Buddies on Harleys had a more mixed reaction....

    Dunlop too

    I put a Dunlop K70 on a R-90/6 and didn't ride it. After about 8 years and no miles in the back of my garage - the cracking looked much like those pictured.

    PM Rules

    I should have done the armiture clean last year. OK - in 2022 I should take the starter apart and clean it and put in new brushes.:groovy
