65 hours in (sudbury area) late night heavy hallucinations on hwy 69.
notes* the rain is directing the path–  two arms placing pieces of time in front of me, time is the illusion, time is the reflection of the movement we make. time conjouring itself through space we experience.

condition of bike on arrival:
front pads run down to zero, chain very loose– needing replacement. left rubber peg cover lost, right foot peg completely gone, front muffler mount loosened and mounting shims lost (sounding like a harley now)
