On Sunday, had a great warm, sunny ride through the Wet Mountains down to Rye, Colorado, past Bishop's Castle.  Then we had a wet and cold ride back when thunderstorms moved in.  A little over 200 miles for the out and back.  The weather did not support photos at the castle so I am posting some from a previous visit.

We were there in 2009 during the MGNOC National Rally in Salida, Colorado. Bishop himself was there railing against the Gubmint. Entertaining, if a bit intimidating to listen to. Classic case of a guy who defies authority at every turn - you know that no jurisdiction would issue building permits for this place - he doesn't give a fuck, builds it anyway.

His shirt says, Jim Bishop, Castle Builder.

I'll be curious if the guy that was giving tours in the MG Museum is still there. When I was there in about '08 I got there about 5 or 10 min before the museum was scheduled to open. Was told no tour because the guy that gives the tours was on vacation for the day. They also seemed to want to get rid of me, as they kept saying the museum is closed until 3:00. It was about 2:52 by this time. at about 2:58 they came out and said that the guy that gives tours had come in to show me around and I can go in now. He did not speak a word of English, but I understood everything. His passion for MG was obvious. We were part way through the first floor when a couple showed up. He kept encouraging them to join us, but they were content looking on their own. When he was done showing me around he raced back and started showing them around. Some ho sadly I fear he would likely be too old to still be doing the job... but I hope he is. Anyways enjoy the trip deep space.

Put a 25 one in it and she started all the time. Guess i have to have a look to see whats going on there.

Great trip and pictures DeepSpace, cheers Wonderful view from the Grossglockner. I see they gave the famous door a fresh lick of red paint. I am just back from a similar trip through Bavaria, Austria, Croatia & the Dolomites but on the Stelvio as I had Mrs Wifey on the back, hard to beat the Stelvio for Pillion comfort. queen

Apologies, I know this is a "what you done with your GRiSO thread" but I had to take the Stelvio for practical two up reasons.

I rode the GRiSO to a close by Triumph dealer was able to test ride the new Triumphs,  Speed Twin, and Scrambler.  Nice bikes but wouldn't trade the GRiSO for either.  

I offered the owner a ride on the GRiSO. He took me up on it. He came back smiling. His first GRiSO ride.

Day off work yesterday, Friday, so I went out for bit of a ride.
I've been poking around Brown County, south central Indiana, for a couple years now and finally
strung together a few of the nicer roads into a nice loop. About 200 miles from start to finish.
Average speed 45, top speed 100, average fuel 42mpg, per onboard data collection.

Today, RAIN.

Sorry, no pictures. Maybe next time Wink

Valve clearance check. First time I have done it myself following the thread on this forum. Fairly easy job and has transformed the sound of the bike, for the better. From the service history, were last done at 14k miles, I have just touched 25k miles, so left it a little longer than I should have, but having done the job, will ensure these are checked at the right intervals.
