Beautiful British Columbia.

So a couple weeks ago I spent some time up in Penticton,
Riding around on my bros shovelhead chopper,as seen previously
on this site. I've been trying to explore new routes to places I have already been.
If you ride in vancouver you owe it to yourself to get to the interior as much as you can.
Soooo much road and so many rad little cities/towns.
Stopped for road construction on Westside road somewhere between 
Kelowna and Vernon. Follows the lake the whole way,tight twisty two lane.
Sadly my ride ended in Vernon,one broken wire,not a big deal except
there was no way to reach inside the case and grab the other end!
Luckily I had a friend in town to haul my ass back to the base camp!
Thanks to Bob and Byron for helpin me out.

How not to hook up a battery....

Tighten connections,place it tray and make sure the terminals touch the box.
Battery isolation? Who needs it.......

Insult to the female form....

This cracked me up.
I think I'd rather be on the fender.
Nice bike though

Near destruction.....

This is what happens when you wheel bearing locknut backs out just a little......
The back of the brake cam moved in enough to rub. Whys my brake fading so bad? Whys it so hot?
Took it off and found this! Cut about half the thickness of the drum. You can see in the first pic that the bearing is back about a 1/16th. Apparently it doesn't take much. Ground right to powder,enough to fill a good sized shot glass! Freaky yes but at least not a close call. Have actually torn a drum off my other Xl's rear wheel so it wouldn't be anything new......

Remember me!

73 superglide. Full blown B.C. Bike.
Posted pics when we picked up.
Took off front fender,back to foot shift,lowered the front end back down and new bars.
Other than that we'll leave it be. Too fucking cool as is.
