East River Sunrise

Streetfighter S Ready to Launch in Morningside heights
I woke  up far too early on Saturday.  I have a lot of work to do this weekend, but my buddy Jon was chomping at the bit to go for a little scoot early, before the rain started and it got too hot.

The weather was already sweltering, at about 85' at 6am, and it was fairly humid.  However, there was next to no traffic after we pulled out of the gas station in Morningside Heights, and made our way up to White Plains.  
Our favorite route is up 22 up around the lake, to 121 through Bedford to 35 and into Connecticut, or stay on 121 till it dead ends in Brewster New York.  
We stopped off at the Dunkin Donuts in Brewster, and chilled out for a while.  I had a little scare on the way home.  Getting back on 84, my clutch got stuck in 4th or 5th gear, and I couldn't shift out. I managed to pull off at the next exit, where my clutch suddenly started to engage again, but I was a little spooked.  
I need to flush the fluids on this bike asap, and hopefully it was just a bubble in the line that will come out when I bleed the slave.
