Rob, you live in Cali? Right? You lost me at, "when wearing cold weather gloves."
On my commute, which fortunately or unfortunately depending on how you choose to look at it I no longer get / have to make, over the "winter" it is common to encounter temperatures hovering near zero (C) and considering the fact that numb fingers are of little use when negotiating patches of ice I choose to protect them rather than tacitly confirm other's misconception of the phrase "Year 'round riding" as meaning "Balmy and warm year 'round" regardless of what they may see in the movies by wearing ventilated gloves year 'round! 365 days a year (if I so choose) of riding, but it is not Tahiti.
Pretty cool Rob.
Hey, with all this new found time on your hands you could maybe wash your bike.
You made it water proof so you can wash your bike right?
Darn I just noticed Hasbeenracer beat me to it.
Sniper: here you go.
To all I wish to say I made an agreement with The Falcon (That's her name, which I find infinitely preferable to Hornet, a name someone else came up with but which I find represents something annoying, easily squashed and forgotten rather than evoking images of gracefully soaring while hunting then nearly silently decending on it's prey and dispatching it easily. Much
closer to the feeling I get while riding her!) to always listen to what she wants and doing my best to deliver it while she listens to what I want and does her best to deliver it. Early on she made it clear she doesn't want to be pampered -- indeed prefers to be "used hard and put away wet". No princess she, and I'm happy to oblige. For my part, I simply require she make me a better rider, and in this she has excelled. No matter what I ask of her she delivers with grace and aplomb, and never has she let me down.
So feel free to project your expectations on me -- I can easily take it, knowing that we always have a good time, have developed a common language and a symbiosis unlike any other I've had with the many motorcycles I have owned and ridden, and fully expect to continue for years to come.
yep silly but i like the idea of a switch for the garage door!! sourcing switches!!
Don't bother. Make it yourself. If you can't find a bleeder cap the right size just take a standard cap and drop it into a jar of used oil for a month or so -- it will swell to the right size. Once that happens wash it off with dish soap and let it sit for a week -- the rubber will repolymerize, and is ready to use. I've always found that making things yourself gives more of a sense of accomplishment. Remember that you also have to seal the remote against moisture -- quite a task in its own right. Here's a hint: the words "Silicone Conformal Coating." You get to figure it out from there. Evil, aren't I?
