A delivery of the nectar of gods. The only problem is that the bar doesn't open for a few more hours.

Had to settle for an Apple cider vinegar drink. Good for detoxing the liver...its all good

Got about 48mi in today on the Shelby Flyer. 3.25 hrs in the saddle, 14mph average, Max 31.
Awesome! you are way too fast for me.
I left in the dark this morning, stopped for pics and bathroom breaks, and 35 miles at the 3.25 hour mark.
I kept going for some more riding on this beautiful day.

Back to where I started riding the beach; now 8:30 AM Santa Ana River mouth; Border of Huntington and Newport Beach.
Back down to the end of Balboa, turn around and eat at Charlie's Chili, Newport Pier.

So, I substitute french fries for the potatoes, and added avocado to "Possibly the World's greatest Chili Cheese Omelette".:D
I rode from here back to the water tower in Sunset Beach; and laid there in the warm sand, resting.

I'm home now, celebrating the day with a mint IT'S-IT ice cream treat.
70 miles total with stops; at least 6 hrs. saddle time.
I get smiles per hour instead.;)

Everytime I see that thing it gets me pumped for a klunk build. Right click << save
Thank you. If you are interested in seeing what I was thinking and how it was done, I have a 2-yr old build thread on RatRodBikes. I encourage anyone to comment there if they would like to. http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/index.php?threads/21st-century-hawthorne-flyer.104338/

I rode it again today for 56.7 miles, 3.7hrs and 15.5 avg. There is not another bicycle like it!
