    I rode 430 miles yesterday to have lunch at Bradley's Country Store outside Tallahassee, FL and enjoy a sausage dog get some of their great strawberry preserves. The Tupelo honey wasn't in yet so I have an excuse to ride back over there in May. Some of my friends came from different parts of the state, all long distance riders. 400 miles for lunch isn't a long ride.

    The roadsides and fields were full of wildflowers and I was reminded again how much sense this bike makes for me and how much fun it is to ride around the neighborhood or cross country. It's comfortable and reasonably fast enough to go anywhere. My route took in some of my favorite technical roads and also a few miles on I-10. I rode 85 mph when needed and in the tight and twisty it's a delight. Two years ago about this time I attempted a Bun Burner Gold and did not finish it but I'm working myself up to another attempt.

    Spent most of the weekend in the house - had to get the HVAC and Water Heater replaced. But I did end up finally getting my wheel over to CG to get my tire mounted yesterday. Went out a bit today to get it scrubbed in before hitting the road for a trip in a couple weeks. Still need to get a little more on it, but man, its nice. Hoping to get out a bit this week as well.

    Noticed my front tire looked squishy yesterday, had under 10 PSI in it, thought the steering felt squishy but assumed I was just getting used to the Africa twin. So I took the wheel off to find some rim leaks, broke down the bead and scuffed and cleaned the wheel and tire, and aired it back up, all seems good now.

    Technically this was Friday but close enough, right?

    I want to put lights in my Givi trunk but can't find a proper connector. So I ordered a couple lights off Amazon and did this instead.

    Lights used were:

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01GJGCR9U/

    Today was just a lazy ride to a gas station 15 miles away. Nice weather for a ride.

    Did my valves on my 2012 NC700X for the 2nd time. Both ends were pretty loose, was left wondering if they needed adjustment.

    Easiest mod on Saturday, added the Givi foot plate! My drive is gravel, and quite a few other places I park are gravel too. Have the plastic puck on a piece of paracord in the frunk, but figured I'd use my TT points to improve the footprint size of the sidestand! Of course it chucked it down with rain most of Sunday, and this morning it was snowing!!

    Went for a sunset / evening ride. While stopped, was approached by an international student that loves the bike and is eager to learn about the ins and outs of riding here.
