    Thanks to you, @Dougie D, and to @Helmut Visor, for your thoughts about potential causes for the wave-like vibrations I feel from my Low Rider S. I have a call in to my dealership's service manager to talk with him since I haven't yet him know that the wheel balancing hasn't resolved the issue.

    However, I do think that the intensity (which was fairly subtle to begin with) may be somewhat less after the wheel balancing. So I have a question for you two. I only have 1600 miles on the bike but could riding it for all those miles with an unbalanced wheel have affected the integrity or wear on that tire and be contributing to the vibration continued problem? Just trying to think of everything--which is funny since I so little about tech-related issues. My universe of "everything" is pretty small. :rolleyes::joy: Thanks for your thoughts and advice. :heart:

    It usually means the wear would be uneven therefore affecting the handling and like you say would probably result in some extra vibrations

    Today I rode my H-D Low Rider S when Mr. Sandi and I joined five of our best-est riding buddies for a lovely breakfast ride. We had gorgeous weather with starting temps in the high 60ºsF and temps in the low 80ºs by the time we arrived back home.
    IMG_3816.jpeg

    We rode over Gates Pass in the Tucson Mountains to one of our Covid-era staple breakfast joints, Coyote Pause. Some of you may recognize this place by now. ;):joy: We actually haven't been to Coyote Pause for awhile nor the great route we take to get home (the long way) after catching up with everyone over coffee. I'd be happy to ride this route through Tucson Mountain Park and Saguaro National Park West every week for the rest of my riding days!

    Though more people are starting to dine indoors, we still chose to eat out in the courtyard. And everyone in our group has now had both jabs with the last two getting their 2nd shots this past week. As you can see, we are now more comfortable not wearing masks because of that. But...yep. Still outdoors. :sun::cool::)

    Although we've had precious little rain this spring in the Sonoran Desert, we are starting to see some beautiful wildflowers lately. This is a bloom on a hedgehog cactus sharing space with a pink penstamon.

    As I mentioned previously, the route we take home from Coyote Pause is terrific! Each time I do this ride I count my blessings that there's a national park right in our back yard. :):heart_eyes: These two photos are not ones that I took but ones I found on Google Images that were taken on the route that we rode this morning.

    Great to see you having such a good time Sandi. Over here Bars and restaurants are opening for table service outdoors and all non essential shops can now open from today so we're slowly opening up here which is great;)

    I've some old 650 and 750 Triumph pistons hanging around along with their respective barrels. One set would be ok for a bore but the others have seen much better days (cracked, welded fins and ex seized) so I thought I could do some hacking. But as I've not done this before, I thought I'd try it out on a BMW piston and rod first. Didn't realise how long it is gonna take but for the first couple of hours not looking too bad. Loads of work still to try things out but I may do this on those old Brit Iron pistons.

    Then went out on my 700 Tracer to triple score some drugs and pick up some magic mushrooms from the chemist and greengrocer.
