I got the patdown this last time.

I looked and didn't see any obvious source, but with the oil leak last year, one likely caused by over-tightening of the filter housing, it was grimy enough that it'd have to be really obvious. Anyway, took it back in to the shop and they say that it was a pinched oil filter housing gasket and that it should be all good, now.

Yeah, I'm not going to comfortable embarking on a 3k mile road trip with just that assurance, so Imma get under there and clean up the gunk, so that any new leaks will be a little more obvious, and then I'm going to keep some paper under the engine when it's in the garage, to make any drips obvious. *le sigh*


Ooof. I guess that's why I still change my own oil, even though it's cheaper to take it to the quickie lube.

I should make "Road Boss" videos where I show how I avoid getting crushed by tanker trucks on the Middlebrook Pike expressway.

It is a great ride up to the H sign as well as Observatory. Used to ride there weekly & hicked both places.

Actually it's the other way around, although counting some of these counties is a stretch.

Now that I'm older I've had several moments where I suddenly recall some situation from my young and single days and realize "oh she was coming on to you" or even worse "oh that was a booty call". Feels bad, man.

I recall no such moments and I fought hard for everything I got.

But Georgia has that blonde chick. Surely it wins a prize for that.

Exactly like that! And I ride a road bike like Tadej Pogacar.

Seriously, I am amazed at what he does. The balance alone is more than I can dream of, not to mention those bursts of power. And he's 6'4" and not light. Years as a professional trials rider helped.
I would enjoy some of the trails he shows but I would be walking a lot of it.

My A/V equipment is lacking.

Someone send me an easy-to-use camera, and I will.

I get emails for pills that will fix that for you.
