Rode to work. In the plan was some bike maintenance by our shop technician. Full brake fluid flush. Replace 150K throttle cables with 20K mile cables from ebay. Replace well worn rear brake disk with close to new disk from ebay. New EBC rear brake pads. Found rear drive flange where the disk mounts with cracked attachment points. Ordered new flange. Got a ride home. Grrrrrrrrr

I love ebay, the flea market of the internet!

We rode into town yesterday for our monthly club meeting. Lots of video, which meant I had to learn how to edit and cut it down to a lots smaller size.

Yesterday hooked up my new Battery Tender.

Today, 110 miles up into PA and back. Temps in the 30's and 40's.

Seal NOT replaced today. Whilst back there I checked it for play. 12-6 revealed a couple of mm of thunk. Still close enough to earlier replacement warranty to garner me another one. I hope. 23k on the first, 20k on this one. tongue

The day wasn't a total loss, though, I replaced the brake pads. At 43k on the oems, with a sixteenth left on the fronts, I think I maximized my moneys worth. thumbsup

And Matt was kind enough to feel sorry for me. As for Phil... well, you know Phil. smirk

Went to Pensicola, Fl. from Tallahassee with three friends, this past Saturday, to visit the new BMW dealership. While there we test drove a K1600GT. Although it is an amazing motorcycle, I still love my RT. 400 mile round trip. Despite it being all highway miles, it was a great day.

FYI. The guys at the Pensicola dealership informed us that a new dealership is opening in Jacksonville, Fl. very soon.

I thought about them locked up in my garage 400 miles away while I am experiencing some of the renown Southern California winter. It's the best riding weather ever.

Well..this story starts last thursday night. Riding home from work and OIL GOES EVERYWHERE!! The entire oil fill cap assembly came off the bike spraying oil all over the left side of the bike, up my pants leg, jacket, inside and outside my helmet! What a PITA! The pants (just a cheap pair of canvas overalls) RUINED, Olympia Airglide jacket RUINED (unless someone knows how to get oil out of it without ruining it), First Gear gloves RUINED, Boots SAVED, Helmet..I'm not sure yet. Used an entire bottle of degreaser and a bottle of S100 and the bike is still not clean. So, still working on getting it all cleaned up. A $10 part purchased and installed in less than 15seconds but oh the collateral damage!!!!
