She looks good from afar, but she's still far from good.

Took the bike for a ride down the coast to Seaside for cheese steaks with my brother in law, who rode his Harley. Rode about 25 miles. Drove beautifully. My brother in law was amazed that it not only had a kick starter, but that it started on the first kick. I swear it was luck, because that's the only time it has ever started on the first kick. Only had one hiccup, I must've forgotten to tighten down the bolts holding on my licence plate, because when I got home, it wasn't there anymore.

Took it to work today. Now that it's running well, I'll ride it until the weather turns cold. Once winter arrives I'm going to strip it down to take care of the rust on the frame.

Took off the chain, and cleaned and lubed using an old school method.  Soaked in "Ed's Red" solvent overnight, and then soaked in a heated mix of grease and 90wt. Hung to dry, and wiped of the excess. Chain looks brand new now.  Going to ride the "distinguished gentleman's" this weekend in Asbury Park
