PostSubject: 600+ miles - finally.   Sat May 11, 2013 10:55 pm

It was Friday, a mere 4 weeks ago that I took possession of our Silver Wing trike. The odometer had exactly 2,400 miles on it. Tonight, when I pulled the S'wing into the garage after today's ride, the odometer read 3,013 miles. :D We've had a lot of wet, cold weather the last few weeks, or I'm sure that odometer number would be a few hundred miles higher. Still, 613 miles (986.52 Km) of just mostly fun riding isn't too bad. :D

Tomorrow is supposed to be another sunny day,. so I'm sure we'll put a few more miles on the odometer. I suggested to Wanda that we pack a picnic lunch and ride up to a nearby lake - after she gets the yard mowed... Razz

Riding the S'Wing may be uncomfortable with that lawnmower between you and the seat. Smile

I'm fortunate that she likes mowing the yard, because I can't. Neutral If she didn't mow it, we'd have to pay to have it done. A few hundred sq ft of my back yard are taken up with my workshop, so that cuts down a bit on what she would otherwise have to mow. Rolling Eyes

Jim,

We didn't want to tell you this until you bought your SWing, did the upgrade to the trike, and paid for a new trailer...but the SWing requires a total engine rebuild at 3,014 miles and a brand new transmission. Just thought we would let you on to this now that you are about to reach 3,014 miles. rolling laughter

Or does she have to tidy the workshop after the mowing?

As long as you are doing the overhaul... Don't forget to remove all the "winter" air from the tires and refill with "summer" air. Very important.

Phtttfpt! Razz Took care of that as soon as I got the trike home the first day. I also started and ran the engine in reverse to blow out any spiders and cobwebs that might have nested in the air intake over the winter.

Ah ha! I used to do that when I was a kid. All those little gears making colourful swirling patterns. Great.

Well, I said yesterday that we would put a few more miles on the trike, but we decided to go out for breakfast and then do a little more genealogy research instead of picnicking at the lake. Round trip -= 104 miles. Smile
Ready to head out-


Breakfast at Golden Corral in Joplin, Mo.


Some of Wanda's Carver ancestors are interred here in Lowell, Ks.


We're back home and Wanda's mowing the yard... Smile

I'm getting ready to Sleep
