The ride was 161 miles total, in great weather, temp in the upper 60's, fall colors just wonderful, also had a great lunch at Colton's in Searcy.
was this a recall for the spark plug cap, i ask this as i have just bought my bike and only has 1500 kms on it and i'm waiting on a replacement cap for mine as its arcing out(you can see it sparking in the dark).
could you tell me what the service letter says.
regards stacey

Yes they replaced the caps. You can email Melisa, the service manager at Sunrise Honda and ask her about the service letter text, I never saw it.

Got up to 62 degrees today so a neighbor here on the Airpark (on his BMW1200 Adventure) and myself (on my XR-650L) made a lunch run to the Dairy Bar in Timbo Arkansas for one of those absolute wonderful hamburgers. A little windy on the mountain tops but all in all a good ride. JoAnn and the DN-01 stayed home out of the wind!

Hi folks,
Here's just a few photos from our travels this past fall up to now.

Whoops! I had posted too many photo links here to show up so here's a link to my Flickr photos http://www.flickr.com/photos/1301257...7628897150345/
I'll leave the descriptions below.

Johnstown, PA about to take the bikes up the Incline Plane

Entrance to the newly opened Flight 93 memorial

Outside Falling Waters in PA (it rained most of this trip, so it was appropriate to stop at a place by this name)

Sukuta Girl's favorite motorcycle gear shop- the Iron Pony outside of Columbus, OH

Sunset outside of the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Aslyum, Weston, WV

Seneca Rocks, WV

Outer Banks, NC

Sukuta Girl and I posing outside Front Royal, VA for our annual Fall Colors photo (a bit late at this elevation)

Belated Christmas Card- We hope everybody had a great holiday!

1/1/12 Polar Bear Run- 1st ride of 2012- riding onto White's Ferry to cross the Potomac from VA to MD- great weather that morning- ended the ride home in rain riding down along a gusty storm front

Here's the ferry coming to pick us up. Unfortunately carrying another load of cages to clog up the roads in Virginia

1/7/12 Frederick, MD Lunch Ride looping thru Blair Witch country, Antietam Battlefield, Harpers Ferry, WV

We've had a mild winter so far and we're still out riding every weekend. Of course it helps to have heated gear!
