[xk] update on Blanch and battery area

WE DID IT !!!
With everyone’s help on this list, we launched Blanch for a tour of the
countryside after dinner this eve.
We decided to eat first just in case we were thrown into a survival
situation. Ha! Ha!
We are happy to announce that we made it home with full lights blaring
after an hour and a half tour with no complications.
Blanch sound real good until you reach 3200 RPM. then the pipes get too
loud.
I am not a puss either. My ears are still ringing.
I will have to try and do some sound proofing.
The battery box areas are open. Is their supposed to be liners in the
battery area?
All I have is a lid over the battery area.
If I lift the lid I could see thought the battery hole and see the ground.
What can I do with this area??

Edgar Blake, “We did it” - is this the same man whose pain a few months
ago was even through the keyboard so palpable? What joys this life brings!
