As you know if you read the last posting, the weather here in South Carolina has been cold and snowy. That, however, made for a great time to do some wrenching on the bike. I take it slow and follow the service manual to help ensure that I don't made a mistake, so the downtime is usually more than for a crack mechanic. I also like to test tings after I think I am done, just in case I have committed a blooper.
So last Thursday I ventured out in cool, clear, and dry conditions to do just that. The roads up to Whitewater Falls are good ones with sweepers that are usually clean, so that's the way I went. There wasn't much traffic, so I could move along at a good clip. After a tour of the Falls parking lot, I diverted onto the Wigington Byway to the overlook on Lake Jocassee and the other lakes to its south.
Here is the view, first of the crystal clear sky as a background to the old girl that had recently undergone some internal work and some external cleanup...

...and I thoroughly enjoyed the test ride, too.
