I was recently reunited with an old friend from 20 odd years ago. Today I rode to his home to see his lovely Rally 200 project which is coming along very nicely (I know, useless without pictures etc..). I then took the long way home.

I will have a new riding partner next year, this makes me happy.

couple of skinheads in the car so maybe they were old school scooterists reliving the glory days. or they dont know the difference between a tuned scooter and a moped and were confused by the speed. ill have to look out for myself on youtube

Started to ride to L.A. on the Street Glide and had Check Engine Light come on about 20 miles out. Turned around and called my friends saying I wouldnt be making the trip. Did some diags and got error codes.

Re-Waxed the restored P in preparation for its first long-ish ride tomorrow. Still starts a bit hard but its a fresh engine but now runs very strong.

Just for grins, I kicked over the Rally that has been sitting for months and believe it or dont, 1st kick.. Sure do wish the former owner had not butchered the body and cowls, otherwise I would completely trick that paint job back to orig looking style.

Rally200 Engine
Purched w/the help of Scooter Marc a partial Rally engine. I plan on getting my Rally back on the road with these cases and still have a plan to get another engine built out of the old (fingers crossed).

Also thanks Jim H. for the info...

I participated in a massive toy run today. about 4500 motorcycles (4000 Harleys atleast, 499 various others and one P200e. It was a tight ride, speeds from 1mph to 50mph. For some reason, the nearest riders behind me stayed about an 1/8 mile back

If that's a working speedometer, the wind chill could get interesting. It seems the truck ahead knows to get out of the way. Must be a local.
