    Pretty toasty here too!

    A short ride in the heat helped to reveal a nasty oil leak from my valve/ cam cover. I had just scrubbed and cleaned the bike on Saturday. Should have left the crud, maybe it held back the leak Guess my next valve check will happen a little earlier than planned.

    Default Justin & my ride home last Sunday from Brown County Rally.

    For the ride home From Bedford IN to home (about 380 miles) Justin and I agreed for the ride home sunday "No I-65".
    So he plotted a route thru a lot of back roads.

    (Used Sandys trick to get this photo.)







    Stopped at a gas station. Was about to start filling up when other folks walked bye with a 2 year old (my guess) that was looking at me, so I waved, and he stopped and wave back, and was looking at the bike. When I was finishing up, they were walking back out and the kid waved again, so I asked them "You think he would like to sit on the bike?". So they picked him up and sat him on the bike, while I guided his shoes away from the gas tank. THE kid seemed a bit uncertain at first, then smilled. I asked if want to "beep the horn?" and turned bars, and pointed to the button, and he pushed it and laughed. The other folks taking his picture.
    (Justin was a sneaky guy, and got a picture without me noticing.)


    Maybe give some folks a different idea of motorcyclists other than the obnoxious loud bikers.
    I suggest some/many of you can do that also, I have been for a few years now. Although if kiddo gets scared will start kicking about time his feet/shoes are at the tank, so I will have the folks pick up the kid, and I hold each foot with a hand, while they lower the kid to the seat.
    Probably would be better to put the bike on the center stand.

    We continued on and stopped to take a break (visit a bush) at a rural intersetion somewhere near Logansport.
    Justin's route was to go out further east, and I was intending on going more direct north, so here is where we parted ways.

    I Continued north on local roads and state highways north to near SOuth Bend, then took US31 home.

    Dave, you're a good man! I haven't had a chance like that but since you mentioned it I'll look for one.

    I did see a toddler in one of those old coin op car rides outside a store a while back. He was trying his best to push start the thing but it was "stuck". I made it un-stuck for him and dropped in a quarter.

    I am envious of your riding with your son. Maybe someday we'll get that chance. Mine's a loose cannon. Have to put him on a vespa or maybe a Honda Rebel!
