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

So I have spent most of this evening going over my bike, top to bottom, tightening any nuts or bolts that seemed they should be tighter (not many of these) and checking my engine mounts, chains, cables, fuel delivery, tire pressure, lights, etc. etc.

Then, of course, I went out for a very pleasant evening cruise. And I have to say, I am probably the last guy to jump on the "China Girl Haters" bandwagon. While I have to agree: these are certainly not Morinis or even Hondas, I must say mine is fairly decent by a long way. And probably more reliable than any HT 2-stroke was ever expected to be. As my old Dodge Caravan grows more temperamental with each passing year, I find myself making more local jaunts with the bike. And trying to keep most jaunts local.
I did it. I posted some bike pics in "Travels and Adventures" under the thread. Eiteljorg Bike Show (I think). It was fun, and my fellow bikers really loved my ride. It was cool.
