Finally get a succession of good days... but the ride-on has a blown belt and a seized bearing... Crying or Very sad

SUMMER! Yayyy! 2013-06-221Edit_zps2b3fbff6

but there is something faithfully waiting in the shadows...

SUMMER! Yayyy! 2013-06-222edit_zps0d35fd77

No real choice there, eh??

SUMMER! Yayyy! 2013-06-223_zps98c2bdfb

It's across the bridge and over the mountain then!

SUMMER! Yayyy! 2013-06-224_zpse4a0fe8b

The 'wiggly road' sign is out of the frame... Baddeck back roads

SUMMER! Yayyy! 2013-06-227_zps4e4e954c

River behind the lot where I'll be designing a new house, and yes, there are trout in there!

SUMMER! Yayyy! 2013-06-226_zps3c8f8365

On the way home again, Bras d'Or lakes at Baddeck

SUMMER! Yayyy! 2013-06-229_zps7b3cb235

Next day WAS spent cutting grass though (after the fix)... Trim needed around this thing!

The 'wharf' (a.k.a. dock) saga for this year. It's an annual event, some years more successful than others.
Last winter was a little rough on the thing, big ice and high winds so we're rebuilding differently! (Better?)
SUMMER! Yayyy! 2013-06-274_zps4c4783e8
Brought some help for the heavy lifting...
SUMMER! Yayyy! 2013-06-276_zps9a73b79d

But he turned out to be unionized and needed frequent breaks! Useless...
SUMMER! Yayyy! 2013-06-2710_zps9939f9bb
But he perked up near end of shift (don't they all?)
SUMMER! Yayyy! 2013-06-2711_zps2cc1955c
But it turned out to be a false alarm, possible enemy naval patrol passed far out to starboard...
SUMMER! Yayyy! 2013-06-2713_zps3f4bdef1
End of first day, concrete poured, tree cut, bracing in... Time for a beer!
SUMMER! Yayyy! 2013-06-28_zps0c28d5ab
Few days interrupted by *ork... and back at it today. Notice the death defying power cord for drilling holes while knee deep in salt water!
SUMMER! Yayyy! 2013-07-043_zps1dc58d16
Ahhh... A man and his wharf! (dock)Rolling Eyes 
SUMMER! Yayyy! 2013-07-045_zpsb671c07a

... and what he's looking at! Wonder where the fishing rod is at? I can hear trout splish-splashing...

Managed to snag a few days off from the 'official' (paying) grind. Thought I would be good to go play... Yayyy!!!  

SUMMER! Yayyy! MSVideo_20130806-230303_zpsca79bce0

But time is limited... turn off the video, stop playing...

Work fairy has deposited a new toy in the yard, looks like another set-back for the KLX250 acquisition...

SUMMER! Yayyy! 2013-08-062_zps3effa9e7

Let's dig dirt, move trees, haul rocks!  

SUMMER! Yayyy! 2013-08-0615_zpsdeb6cfb2

I can see a RedBull video coming up if I ever finish this goldfish pond!!

SUMMER! Yayyy! 2013-08-069_zps9b9ab48d

One more day of vacation tomorrow! What to do??

Well... all this running back and forth on our abrasive roads wore out the tires. 6,000 miles... I suppose that's all you get out of Battlax. Tried out the local bike shop, but they wanted $400 ++++ for replacements IF I brought them the wheels.
Turned to the great internet and used canadasmotorcycle.ca to order up Pilot 2's. They arrived at my door on the far edge of the continent in 3 days(!!)  $400 all in with free shipping. Can't beat that!

Did the Zen and the Art of Motorcycle thing and mounted them after rebuilding the floor in the garage, AND buying a new set of hex sockets, AND building a home-made balancing stand... I think there is economy in there somewhere...

Anyhoo... it was fun bonding with the little Ninja... It all went back together in less time than I thought.

SUMMER! Yayyy! DSCF0077_zpsefe9114a

Thought I'd take a break-in run to see how the dual compound thing works... but something is blocking the garage door.

SUMMER! Yayyy! DSCF0073_zps73e7a48b


I smell fall in the air. Time to panic!
