INTO MERIDAN

Had such a nice day on the bike. It’s a great time together. There’s a fair amount of communication even without speaking words.
Real smokey from fires in California. Some intermittent rain. Slightly chilly at times, pretty awesome for riding.
They coined the name for this event right when they said “endurance run”. Don’t know which is more tired. These fleshy bodies or the metal ones…can’t believe we’re down to 2-1/2 days.
Harley Davidson put on a great feed for us tonight. I think my fav so far.
This evening during maintenance the guys went to adjust the valves and found the rear intake push tube had stripped the adjuster bolt and lock nut had stripped out of the push tube. Did a loop thru the parking lot but found no extra parts. So were three days out to the finish – not having the parts we opted to tig weld the adjuster bolt into the push tube. We’ll search again tomorrow. Hope it will hold.
