Dirt bike ride
I was taking a nap this morning when I heard a motorcycle out front so I got up as I figured it was my brother Barry and it was.
He asked if I wanted to go for a dirt bike ride up in the hills. Sure.
So I got my shoes and socks on as I was still in my slippers and we headed on up into the hills and rode all around on the roads.

Hot dirt bike has an air intake problem
He rides this hot dirt bike and was saying it’s staving for air so once out of his riding gear we took some stuff off his bike and had a look at the air intake area. The place were the air gets to the air filter was closed up a lot and not letting enough air get in. He took off the air cover and took it for a spin and he said much better so will do a little trim job on the plastic part when he gets home. It’s hard to believe a hot dirt bike as it is has a problem like that from the manufacturer.
Good for the body
One thing I’ve discovered about riding these dirt bikes at our age is riding them really loosens up the body. When I first started riding again I could barely get my leg over the seat to get on and off. Now I can do that and more as it really stretches out the body.
Barry took off for home and I did the same to continue my nap.
Pole bean trellis
I’d been thinking this old gate I’m not using would be good for growing some pole beans on if I propped it up.
It’s a bit heavy but I got it up into this position for now. I will put some better log braces on it eventually but for now I better get some beans planted. The beans can grow up the pen fence and then across the gate so should be easy to pick too.
By the time I got the gate up it was late evening so that was about it for me today.
Nice day, nice ride and I got a bit of work done too.
