Welcome Doug. Looks like you got a pretty good handle on all the preventive maintenance and should be ready for the riding season. My Inlaws used to live in Villa Park on Ardmore but are over in Lombard now. Most of my wife's family are in the Lombard, Elmhurst area.

Now since you pretty much have the bike ship shape, you need to bring yourself and wife out to the Galena gathering mid June and take advantage of all the roads out there in Illinois, N/W Wisconsin and Eastern Iowa and meet a bunch of us fellow Goldwing riders. I bet you leave knowing a few more friends by the time over...

Sorry for the delayed responses been busy with life.

Thanks for the warm welcome!!

Regarding the question about using moly paste yes I used moly, and its a good thing I did this service because it looked like what ever shop did the previous lube job at the universal joint used a regular wheel bearing grease and not the moly paste.

Unfortunately we wont be able to make it to Galena, still part of the working world, Now if it was on the weekend it would be a different story.

As an FYI, the wife and I will be on vacation the week of May 20 through the 24th down in Mammoth Cave KY. Planning on taking a day trip down to Cummins Falls State Park down in TN.

We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.
