What a good day this turned out to be! The night before I was up hours past my bedtime helping my sister-in-law move. So I told Capt’Jon no way for a ride tomorrow: I’m sleeping in!
Once I woke the weather was perfect for a ride. I texted Jon “Lets Take a Ride?” and NOTHING.
An hour latter (by now it’s 10AM) and Jon says “Lets Take a Ride!”
Wow, one hour and fifteen minutes of interstate pounding away and I’m not even geared up! The scramble begins!
Twenty-four hours earlier, we weren’t sure we could ride as his XR was in the shop getting the carb rebuilt and the valves reseated. So, Jon hits the starter and nope. We got to inspecting it and found that the Acerbis Pet Cocks were flooding the bike.
That is probably the reason the bike went in the shop. No worries, it is what it is right! Plus knowing your new/used bike has a clean carb and seated valves to rely on makes it a true Honda again (reliable)!
So, sitting next to Jon’s bike is his wife’s bike, the ride continues! ... HA!
From Manchester we rode over to Sequatchie taking some nice twisty backroads.
Being a naturally born scout, Jon was wanting to check out a popular Jeepers road in Coppinger’s Cove. Its the same road that the Trials Training Center is off of.
Jon and I had actually been there the weekend before watching and filming the KENDA Tennessee Knockout Enduro Races ... That was a good day indeed!
