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

It really sucks big-time when you haven't even got enough money to buy a gallon of gas. My bills are all paid, but my bike is empty. And this Friday is not a payday.

So, to console myself, I went over the bike in great detail, seeing what I could fine-tune, or lube, or adjust, or in general make it work better. I put some nylock nuts in places I wanted 'em but didn't have 'em before. Checked my wheel and chain alignment. Dragged out the multi-meter and checked batteries. On & on.

Oh, and earlier I finally finished the restoration on my wife's bike once & for all. It's under the thread "Lovely Bike for a Lovely Lady". She loves how it looks now. Even with her trade-mark poker face, I can tell she's pleased.

"There is nothing wrong with wanting a motorbike that is an extension of your personal taste and fashion sense; if you must ride somewhere, I say do it with style!"
