|This guy is getting a last ride in before tucking his Harley in|
for a long winter's nap.
While I was getting new tires put on the Triumph, it became obvious that I desperately need a new chain and sprockets too. I remain hopeful that I'll be able to continue riding for a few more weeks before the snow flies, the chemicals get put down on the road, and I have to put the Triumph to bed for the winter.
I'm bringing the bike in this afternoon to have the new parts put on. Between bad weather and having a cold, it's going to be the first time I've fired up the bike in a couple weeks.
Incidentally, late October is a great time to get work done on your bike here on the Middle Coast, because everyone else is winding down for the season. I believe the service writer's exact words were, "Bring it in any time, our schedule is wide open now."
With any luck, I will get a window of reasonable weather so I can get out riding a few more times. But if not, at least I'll be ready to ride next spring.
