Great job with the video Glen - I found the full 12 minute version.

Looking at that smoke, I really should have replaced both plugs instead of just #2; I think that is why it was missing on some of those steeper climbs. I replaced it last night and it looked almost as bad as the one I replaced at A&W!

After about breaking my back hitting a bump on the main road at the beginning of this run, I decided a good winter project would be to pull the plywood out of the seat bases and put rubber straps back in...

Yeah, I was riding with you when you hit that bump, it was a big bounce alright!
Fixing the seats is a good thing.

I couldn't remember if it was you or your brother.

Seats are done and ready to go back in! Even put an extra inch of foam on the bottom.
