XS 650 Cam Chain Guide

Well after riding this summer a couple of trips and the recent trip down to Brooklyn, I think my cam chain guide is crumbling... Drained the oil and found some plastic and some aluminum in the filters... starting to disassemble enough to pull the motor and the heads.  Bike has been running like a top, so I dont think im going to get into the engine much.  Doesnt burn or use any oil... Should just be able to change cam chain guide and put some new gaskets in it...  Just want to do it fast so I can get some good rides in before the end of the season...

Brooklyn Invitational 2013

Brooklyn Invitational is this weekend.  Ive been planning on riding down Saturday morning.  Still trying to decide if I want to hit the Dice Party Friday night.  If anyone is riding down from the north hit me up.  Right now im heading down solo...   Will probably be leaving out of Providence as early as I can drag my ass out of bed...

See you there.

Gypsy Run 7

Gypsy Run 7 was this past weekend.  We hit some awesome roads, had some beers, hit some deer and froze our asses off.  Great way to finish the summer.  I never seem to take as many photos as I like, but sometimes its better in my head.  Made it most of the trip with no issues.  I let Chris ride my KZ 750 and it made it about 600 or 700 miles until it barfed out the primary sprocket and stranded him in East Hartford Ct.  Other than that the weekend was as smooth as it could have been..

I spent a couple hours adjusting a few things on the bike after some shakedown time.  Wanted to get out before dark, but had to try and take some photos in the conditions...
