Zero Gravity

I put on a Zero Gravity Double Bubble windscreen. I got a
fluor. blue one discounted from the ZG outlet. It's clear with a slight blue tint. Looks good on the silver bike. Rain here in Mass. today so didn't give it the highway test yet.

Installed a PowerBronse double bubble windshield. Nice quality and easy install. Flow is good no buffeting so far up to 75mph.

Fell in love with the Sprint again

2 days of perfect weather and often clear roads down the Great Ocean Road; sorry about the dead bees on the lens...

Parked it for a little while. Its due for some maintenance and a rear tire, again.

Just put new tires on my TT and going to ride it for a little bit.

Need to do a valve check, rear brakes and while I'm there check the rear wheel bearings. Oh and tire. replace the a fore mentioned tire.

I didn't write down the mileage I got out of this tire (a Pilot Road 2TC) but it didn't seem to last too long. Of course riding 50 miles round trip on mostly flat straight roads wore out the middle way before the edges.
