I live probably within 15 miles of Frank and managed to get out on the Vulcan for a bit a couple of Sundays ago.  Had to take advantage of the "global climate warming changing".  :)

I’m jealous. I’m in “sunny Southern California” where it has snowed TWICE this year already. Snow isn’t impossible where I live but it’s unusual and never been twice in the same year in the 25 years I’ve lived here. It hasn’t been out of the 40s in days and the yard is still covered.

A friend is home outside of St. Louis for the holidays and rode Christmas Day and the day after. Enjoy it while you can.

Yea, crazy weather for sure. I'm in Northern Illinois and have been riding every day just because I can.

Got 'ol 1080 dialed in and dare I say; its probably giving me the best overall experience of any bike I've owned. Man I just love riding this thing.

Well, in midway USA it's been unseasonably warm the last few days and we broke a 64 yr record yesterday by a few degrees.   So today I took out the old EH on a nice ride up the river to Rulo Nebrasxi and back across the river to Mound City then back home after stopping to see a friend North of St Joseph Mo.  A nice 120 miles on decent roads at unheard of temperatures.   I couldn't resist since I'm still breaking in the #204 engine in my chassis after I disassembled and pinned the bearings,  grooved the early style crank on the RH main to aid in rod oiling.  I've actually come to appreciate these are pretty decent bikes at the core although they have some issues which would have had to be addressed.

Welp....
The holiday season is upon us.
Here's to family time, and good health, and great food. Reflect upon your past, with nothing but great memories to come.

Technical Resource Discussion / Re: Steering Head Bearing issue?
« Last post by Donkey Hotey on December 03, 2019, 10:00:19 am »
I saw some of the same prices you did but since those may be surplus or counterfeit, I wanted to make sure we were comparing apples to apples. I’ve had some bad experiences lately with Chinese counterfeit parts from the internet. Bearings are notorious for that.

The tapered bearing I bought for the Deadwood did come from eBay but it was in an old, shelf-worn Timken box and the bearing wrapper showed similar age or I wouldn’t have trusted it. That was $17. There were similar parts down to $5 but I wanted genuine stuff.

I use mccmaster/Carr a lot. I like the quality..

After I did the post yesterday, I did a quick Google for the bearing, with nothing near that expensive. Mostly 50$ or less, some austria made...     It didn't show mccmaster..

Not purchasing yet, but that's quite the price difference.
