Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

rode about 50 miles today, and finally got a haircut.

got home, re-painted the darts on my frame and fork, and i'm re-shaping a vintage Brooks B-72 leather seat i got off the 'bay for 5 bucks. it was flattened out when i got it, but i soaked it in water overnight, then tied it up into shape and i'll let it dry out for another day, then rub in some neatsfoot oil.

tried to find some fuel-proof Lustrekote clear coat, but it's illegal to sell in california thanks to our environmental laws. guess i gotta get it online.

now i'm gonna go get drunk with all the other holiday orphans...

merry christmas.
