A Nice Sunday Ride With Some Custom Cousins

It seems that everyone has been tied up with stuff lately so it was a great thing for us to be able to get away and ride for a little while this Sunday. Bill and Whitey couldn't make it, but ya gotta take care of the family first. Ian, Ross and I met at Ross' house and after catching up for a few minutes took off for some fun.
Ross showing off his new "cruise control" he picked up for his bike. He and Ian are gathering all the goodies and making all the mods they need to hit the El Diablo run with Bill in May.

Ian checking out one of the 10 million cool pieces Ross has made for this bike.

Ross' frame table is almost done and ready for Ross to begin building his CB750.

Ian's shovel sitting at the curb waiting for the latest shakedown run. Ian is trying to get as many miles as he can on the bike to work out all the bugs before he gets to Mexico.

And away we go!

Somehow caught up with Ross. Actually he held it down to a nice pace today.

Following my Brothers down some fun country roads.

Starting to find a few curves.

And some more of them.

We stopped to take a break and to check for loose parts. We did pretty good, one exhaust nut had fallen off Ian's shovel. Not bad for a bike that was in a million pieces not that long ago. I must say that it was nice to ride behind an old FLH with the full fender and bags without seeing the rear fender and other parts shaking all over and in different directions. This bike is proving to be a good solid build.

The place Ross led us to was a cannonball factory during the Civil War and today is a nice park with some of the parts of the factory grounds recreated. Across the street is the remains of a mustard gas factory from WWI. I plan to get back out here with my Wife and our cameras so you'll see more pics later.

About ready to ride again.

The ride back.

We went through Columbiana on the way back. It's a nice small Southern town with lots of old south charm. After this we got back to Ross' where we hung out for a few then headed on home to get ready for the new week.

I really like how the parked pic of Ian's bike came out so I played with it a little and thought I'd share.

That's all for now. Catch ya later!
