Aside Posted on

As there has not been a whole lot of riding lately, there has not been a whole lot to report on.  I have had to get the chain adjusted as it was very slack.  I thought it was something wrong in the transmission, as it was knocking between 1st and 2nd and 2nd and 3rd.  I called in to a friend of mine and went by his shop (thanks, Chad at Retro Wrench!) and got it properly adjusted.  Hung out a bit, had some fun, felt very relieved that I was not going to have to go to the dealer for a repair, even though Raven is still under warranty.  I am planning on going to Madison this weekend (Sunday, probably) to check out the Jefferson Proving Grounds, and then do a full clean and wax of the chain.  I have gone ahead and started looking at a new chain and sprockets, and think I have found a set already.  Doesn’t need to be done yet, but I also don’t want to be on the road when it does need to be done.
