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

I pulled the tank on the cruiser, cleaned it out, cleaned the base of the leaking stud and epoxied it. Waiting for it to set before I can do more there.
After that I dropped the cruiser's rear wheel and pulled the fender. The bracket I used as an upgrade from the stock one sheared across the bolt hole for the frame. I dug through my box of "assorted bits and stuff" and came up with what I think was a fire extinguisher hanger bracket. The holes on one end of it matched up perfectly with the holes in the fender, but it was about 1/32" too wide to go through the fender. I widened the slot and it slid right in. I used the bracket from the bike to center punch the other end in the right spot, then drilled it out. Everything went together pretty smoothly putting it back on the bike. I gave the tire a good cleaning and put the wheel back on.

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