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

I have no love for cold, bitter, winter weather. I couldn't do any painting tonight, it got cold and frosty here again. I did putter with the clutch lever though. I wanted to expand the draw on it, to make adjusting the pull of the clutch easier. I've always had very long fingers so, to take advantage of them, I carefully used dremel and needle files and slowly took down material at the point where the lever meets its housing, so it would swing further out at rest. I checked it in a mounted state and it's still not out of reach for me, but it pulls a little bit further now. I like it this way. If I can pull all that I've learned from the previous bike together, the Higgins will be both beautiful and very easy and comfortable to ride.
