When I showed up to do some work for the Feather River Hatchery yesterday morning, I was surprised when I saw this sitting in their garage. They say it stays in storage most of the time. Apparently this truck was actually used to haul fish way back when. Very cool.
Took a quick detour on my way home from work today. Yuba River at Highway 20. Hope I'm able to keep the ride pics coming. This bike is running pretty great but I did loose the shift lever this morning about half way to work. Rode the rest of the way in 4th gear then found the lever later today. Good & bad fortune; I swear this bike is cursed.
A little late night gasket scraping & early morning wrenching & this bike is back on the road. My friend Jared joined me for a quick shake-down run early this morning & it was smooooth sailin'! Unfortunately, I had to grab a back-up battery because it seems I cooked the other on our last ride. Other than that though, the Swamp Donkey is running (& charging) better than ever! I've even got the carb closer to being dialed in. One more jet size up & I think she'll be good. Hopefully the next pics will be from the road.
