Well, I'm back..

It's been a while since I've been on here...heck, its been a while since I've even rode...

A while back while heading out to work I lost all spark in my poor bike...since then, my headgasket in my subaru went out at pretty much the same time.

That headgasket turned into quite the fiasco thanks to a machineshop messing up my valves. Sold that car, bought another one, then moved 3 hours north...

So yeah, my poor Excelsior has been sitting....till now...

I'm finally cracking down on it, and gonna get her running again hopefully.

The tank was plagued with pinholes the entire time, so my first plan is to seal the whole tank with Por-15 kit, then, I gotta figure out why I lost all spark a while ago..

Cedar Key is a lovely place. I just love it!

Third weekend in September is XS Southeast. It's a short 500 mile ride. You need to come and shake hands with everyone!
