I'm starting this in case one day i'm looking for something to do for my bike and I have no motivation. A couple words with a picture or 2 might give someone the iniciative to start a new mod or even wash his or her bike.
Yesterday was oil and filter change day. And I ordered a Soundgate for the Goldwing last week and it should be here tomorrow. The Soundgate is direct connect interface for iPods and iPhones. It plugs into the factory CD player plug and allows you to use an iPod through the bike's audio system, and change songs, volume, etc with the controls on the left-side grip that are meant for the (optional) Honda CD changer. And the interface charges the Apple device and pauses music when switching to and from AM/FM or XM radio.
Ummm Got board so stuck some pinstripe on the bike just to see what it looked like Only had red here but would like to try yellow as well just to get an idea.... only took 20 min and will only take 1 min to tear off
Oil and filter. Cleaned up the scratches from last years astrovan encounter and painted. Installed new cowl from said encounter. Packed fresh grease into the rear bearings ran out of time for the fronts that's for tomorrow will get some pics tomorrow maybe. It's always dirty since I live quite a ways down gravel.
Oh yeah clean and lubed chain and put on a few coats of wax too. Need to remember to flip The PCIII back over before I leave out tomorrow or the frame will be deprogramming me as I ride. I use the rubber band deal under the seat to hole it in place. Putting a sticky note up on the monitor now to remind me and on the tread mill. I'm a forgetful idget especially in the morning.
Common sense. So rare it's a god damn super power.
In 1915 T. Roosevelt said, in a speech to the KofC, "There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all. "
The CRF450X got new handlebars and bar clamps. I also washed her and lubed the chain.
My wife's CRF230 is in the middle of a front end swap - CR85 forks with new triple clamps, steering stem bearing, fork seals, bushings, heavy duty springs, and fresh fluid. First time working on fork internals so it's taking me a while...
The 919 got fresh oil and had the chain cleaned and lubed after this last track day.
This weekend I'm finally going to install my power commander my kids bought me for fathers day and a set of G&J smoke brake lines. Actually ordered two sets of lines as my sons 919 is in the garage and we're doing some minor TLC
I looked at my 10r waiting for her new rear wheel, a victim of the budget crunch and I sighed. Fortunately, I have the KLR, but her brake pads are wafer thin. When they go, I sit and wait for funds.......................

Installed my sato passenger pegs on my rear sets yesterday, then went for a 2 hour ride to see if it felt any different. The rearsets seem to have a bit of buzz now. I think I'm going to pick up some dynamat and see if that won't clear it up.
I touched the cord showing through on my rear tire when I showed it to my brother. He doesn't have any money for me to borrow, either.
I did not know you and Barry were brothers, he should have borrowed more from the Chinese...
