Gotta love the ease of twins

So Ang and I finally got to changing our oil and storing the bikes completely for the winter. I got some little stuff to do but nothing that can't wait.

It took her twice as long to get her bottom belly pices off, drain the oil and change the filter.

I love the fact I undo 8 quick release fastners and drop the full belly pan I have, undo drain plug, pull old filter and that is it.

Although the fastners are a bit tricky at times and she seems to get them better.

I am proud she does change her oil all herself though.

If your wife changes her own oil.... (obvious question coming here....)

Why doesn't she just change yours too? That way you can take hers for a test ride and make sure everything is... you know... OK for her to ride!

I LOVE Tig Bitties!

I manage to talk her into letting me take the RR out every now and then. She has taken the TL around the block but no long ride yet.

She does good maintenance. The best has to be a track day last year where a buddy needed to take his tires off and she got so fed up watching him she amde him move and did it for him.

Got some good looks when we helped a buddy in the AMA a couple years ago as well.

As if! I change my own, he can do his. Although his is much easier. There will be no doing his while he takes mine for a joyride. No way, no how.
