    I got a really neat thing called a "cooling vest" for riding during the hot Sacramento summers. You soak it in water before using it. It turns the water into a gel in the vest and you wear it under your riding jacket. The water trapped in it slowly evaporates and keeps you cool. It's almost like air conditioning!

    That was interesting! Thanks!

    The bike must of had cruise control. Most motorcycles have a spring-loaded throttle that will shut itself off if not physically held open.

    When the weather is more conducive to pleasure riding lets get together for lunch in the Delta. It's 108 degrees right now.

    Maybe someone should reinvent a jacket made like the old canvas water bags to cool the wearer??? ;-)

    Two of the English made motorcycles I had (1940's rigid frame Norton 500 single, late 1950's 650 BSA twin) had a small thumbscrew to adjust the tension, or lock it in a set position.

    But that's almost unbelievable as to how long that bike kept going and on the same side of the road.

    Lol!!! That sounds like the average group to me these days, but glad you enjoy it.

    And welcome to the Mac group.

    PS: Interesting looking place you live and certainly lots of brick and stone buildings according to the photos on google maps.

    I love traveling. I've been coast to coast many times and seen many things. Now that I'm into my senior years I've cut my travel time down quite a bit. Now it's mostly relaxing, collecting and spending those earned retirement checks and watching the world go crazy.

    And also enjoying a few pints of some good English beer can't help but improve things I'm sure.

    Cheers!!
