I had smarted off in the June thread that my wife wanted a ride in the 18.
Found a rad leak on a shake-down run and I've completely ignored it as it stopped leaking.
She's the one that had said before that she didn't want no ride since it didn't have a top and it wasn't painted.
I've had this one since August 1st of 2000-16. Got it running that fall.
I wish I was ready for a top, it's HOT here! 81 degrees. Dew point is 72.
Turned the gas on and backed it out.

Down we go! You've seen this view before along with a couple others.



Obligatory view of lake Minniewarsh-tub.



Beautiful road leading into the woods. Didn't get a canopy shot today again. One of the coils was being a jerk.



Fiddled with the button on 2 and it was back in the game. My wife had said we should take the trail and I agreed.
It didn't register, I was listening to the miss. After turning around ahead, I stopped and fiddled. Must've been a flake of dust or what-not.



What? Jack's trail? Yesss! Perfect old school "road".



Nice.



This will test your throttle skills for gentle running. My rusty 24 would be MY favorite here.



Home again, home again. Jiggety jig!
Looks weird. Knocks like a door. Drives really nice!



Gonna do that again! Maybe after our nap.
Gotta put Kero in the lamps for later tonight when the local Hospice run comes by on the highway where we watch and wave.
I don't tour and they aren't perfect but by gum we have fun with this old machinery here.
You?

Are those MN Classic vehicle plates?

Most people seem to have yellow Pioneer, black YOM, or regular plates.

Thanks. :-)
The plates are Pioneer plates. Cost me $200 to keep/transfer them!

Looking great Duey, i sure do envy those beautiful roads you get to ramble on down. :-) How effective are those yellow lens at night?

Duey: Thanks for sharing the pics and commentary on your 'tour'. That is exactly the kind of tour I enjoy the most. jb
