I got dressed and was out the door by 07:45, it was 43f but nice and sunny out. I got the GSA fired up then plugged in my electric jacket liner just in case. I had on my tourmaster recon jacket and a mid-weight fleece jacket too. I wore a pair of cabella fleece lined jeans along with my klim latitude pants, two pair of sox kept the chill off my feet. the hand guards keep a lot of air off the hands and with heated grips I figured the alpinestar Gore-Tex lined gloves would be enough..... and I was right. I had planned on leaving sooner so I wouldn't have to take the expressway. it took about an hour to make it to Monroe, mi, scott was waiting in his garage when I arrived, I was there so scott could sync my throttle bodies

leaving downtown Toledo I rode back to us-24 and headed for home. the temp gauge was showing 60f but there was a cold gusty breeze coming out of the south. I took I-275 north but that strong breeze was pushing the GSA sideway. I exited the expressway at Carleton, mi. I figured I would meander my way home from there. I spotted this at the VFW post

still meandering west north west I finally made my way to sumpter, mi. I made a right on sumpter rd. and took it to I-94. I took m-39 north to us-12, made a stop in Dearborn, mi for a catfish and shrimp dinner seeing that I hadn't eaten anything. from there I headed home for a late lunch

Nice little ride Will. The mold spores are kicking my butt right now, so stayed in the house and watched the birds outside on the feeders. I like to say, "now that I'm retired, everyday is Saturday" so I'll ride "next Saturday" (tomorrow or the next day, or the next...)
We need to catch up - maybe I'll run down to "Henry's" to say "hi" to you guys one of these days.

Nice ride. Did you notice any difference after the carbs were adjusted?

I don't know if it made a difference when the carbs were adjusted but the fuel injection is better, better throttle response and running smoother at all rpm's :)

Good stuff there Doc. I thought you guy's had a dumping of snow up your way and it would be sometime before you could get the bikes out for a spin.
