Shovelfest IX - Wednesday and Thursday Part 1

Up and gone, before the crack of dawn. I know trailering is lame, but I was short on vacation time, so Mike(Speedjunkie) came by the house and picked me up. He was so excited for Shovelfest that he bought a new trailer and a new truck. We left at 3:30 Wednesday morning hoping to miss the major traffic times and not set-up in the dark.



Well, this little detour and stop did cost us some time. George Dickel Distillery near Tullahoma. Actually not that far from Jack Daniel's place, if you have time to do them both.



The tour ends with a tasting of course. I am fond of  No. 12, drinks like a cognac in my opinion.



You guessed it, we about couldn't find the place and we set up camp in the dark.

Thursday morning, only the die hards around. The Things and their Knucklehead.








The campsite was pretty nice. There are several huge rallies held here.


Kentrrr was here, too. He's now retired and RVing full time.




It didn't rain on the campsite any though the weekend, but the morning dews were amazingly heavy



It's not Shovelfest unless George is cooking up a ton of breakfast.



And Brian won't turn down a meal.



Remember the Shovelfesters that aren't with us anymore. Rest in peace, Bevy.



Cory, Mike, Super Dave, and Dennis.


Thing 2.


Off to ride the country side with Mike.

















Stop for some glamor shots.

Fridays Are For Racin'

One major update for Strange Days 9, is that the flat track racing will ONLY take place on Friday night, July 12th 2019.  This should make everyone else that's not looking to compete, and just have a good old time happy!  Saturday July 13th will be all about the chopper show and old bikes that fill the grounds each year; as well as the amazing live tunes that will be cranking all day and night.  (More on that stellar music lineup coming soon!)  So get your hot shoes ready for Friday, and set your barefoot party feet free on Saturday!
Stay tuned!

Pipe Diameter

These pipes are small diameter 1 1/2".... I guess back in the day, the factory felt the K Model 750cc side valves worked best with these smaller diameter headers?  Similar sized to the ports, etc.  I always like the big, free flowing straight pipes, but so far, this thing seems extra responsive and hopefully it will help bring back some low end to this thing . . ?  Factory stock early Sportster muffler.  It's got a set of -60R KR heads on it, and I resleeved the cylinders, new valves, guides, etc.  The Delorto PHM38 is my new carb-of-choice (if you don't want to run an M53 Linkert).  I haven't really rode it around yet, so I'm sure I'll have some tuning issues coming up.  Hopefully not - is always nice !  I added my set of -60 aluminum wheels (I'd been saving for who know what?) and figured I may as well start using some of this stuff.... One thing is for sure, H-D made some pretty neat bikes back with the Ks and early Sportsters.  Some of the neatest lookin' if done right.
