It's been all over the news that this engine has been on tour. Today it traveled north along the Mississippi allowing thousands to take pictures and videos as it rolled along. Videos are probably too large to post but I will try.

Would love to see it in person one day. It came as close to me as Chicago a number of years ago, but I had no idea it was there and completely missed it. Was lucky enough to see the 765 out of Fort Wayne IN and Pere Marquette 1225 up in Michigan, and the 611 back in the 90s when it did excursions, but can only imagine what the Big Boy would be like.
1997 Valkyrie- Light Cutomization, but Too Busy Riding
1969 CT90- Melted Wrist Pin Circlips. Somehow.
1976 GL1000 (Yellow)- In Many Pieces Scattered Around the Garage
1980 KZ1300- Deciphering Carb Tuning Mysteries
1972 CB750 Barn Find- Sidecovers Away At Painter
1974 Velosolex 3800- Better Than Walking

All advice I give is only valid until an expert corrects me.

Had to fix the attachments. An extra one snuck in while I was adding the attachment. The extra video was a local low life that was stealing my lawnmower and the battery from one of my bikes. I would sure like to catch up wit him.
