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

Doing preventive maintenance two days ago, I noticed one SS 14g spoke broke its tip @ the hub. That was fixed, new bike chain installed and both chains greased. Engine idle was turned down; bike sounds mellow now. Opti-2 oil is in my reserve bottle, awaiting its first time @ 100:1.

Sparkplug shows chocolate brown, a shade richer than its previous cocoa-brown. I had adjusted the carb to make up low end torque for the taller tires.

Rode my bike to the blood bank yesterday. Nurses there shared how a donor who'd given 200 times before, had fainted shortly after giving platelets. We donate every two weeks. Blood donors give every eight weeks.

That kinda spooked me, since I rode 5 miles in on my MB. So I rode home on the sidewalks mostly, @ slow speed.

Note to self: Do NOT ride to blood bank on your motorized bike!
