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

I did a leak-check on the tank that I dropped while I was painting it last weekend, and it seems to have passed. I'll need to clean the inside of the tank out, too. I have some 3/8" steel shot I can shake around in it, a compresser and a shop-vac and no fuel has been in it yet, so that shouldn't be a problem.
I finally had enough time and energy to sand down the dirty tank and put a coat of paint on it and the small patch on the frame I'm touching up today. It could have been a lot worse, I managed to get most of the dirt off before it set in the paint right after it dropped. Surprisingly, no (apparent) dings either. I should be able to do another coat on the tank on Wednesday and have it back on track with the rest of the paintwork.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
