Looks like it was a great ride and so many water crossings Sorry to have missed it. My bike died a few blocks from home that morning Blown fuse near the battery - still haven't root caused it. But looking forward to the next ride!

WOW, that is a unique looking bike. Nice choice. Will be a head turner just like the sled was. You should open a thread so we can pick it apart

We all loved that sled bike, except of the licence plates parts falling off
