Yesterday, I spent most of the. day (taking my time) changing the brakes and making sure the slides are cleaned and lubed up. Bled the brakes and clutch making sure I had all new fluids. Also checked the differential fluid, that was good. Bought a pair of 194 LED bulbs to put in my position lights. Love the look. Picked them up @ Walmart for a decent price. Before I was all done I put mew chrome master/clutch cylinder caps on. That pretty much was my day. The first pic of the lights has the LED is in the left side (looking at bike) and the second has both LED bulbs. Also looking into some HID's for the headlights.

Pulled both the 93 and the 95 out from the sheds, also the 86 and 89 Ventures, the 95 Goldwing has not ran in a long time, started right up but i fear its going to need some repair, too much coolant smell in the exhaust, i do have a pair of new head gaskets for it. Took the blue 89 Venture down the road to fill up tank, first time i have ridden it this year, found out my throttle cable at the carb on the 89 black Venture is about to break, just a few strands left.
Adjusted the handlebars of the blue/red 95 to match the 93 blue/gold Goldwing.

And took a bunch of pics, rain is coming soon, will try to get some riding tomorrow.

You need to get yourself some more motorcycles.
Seems like you're running low.

Trust me, i have more...

Of the get on and go bikes not shown are the two Honda CX bikes, one Vmax and an 85 Goldwing, but its not really road safe, tires are rotten, runs good though. And there are a bunch others in the shed for other projects, like two more Ventures and several more Goldwings.
I have nearly enough to order up a conex 40 foot container and to have it delivered, then i can have a better place to work on the bikes. Eventually there will be two side by side but maybe 12 feet between, then i build a shop between them.

today I put some Harley mufflers on My GL1000. Bought them for $11.00 on ebay. I cut the cross over pipe in half and welded each halve to the mufflers to give me an end to match up with the head pipes. worked great

Yes, we took the wing and had a great time. Took some real nice roads.

Stayed overnight then took the long way home.

Seen hundreds of bikes and bicycles. It's kind of fun to dodge the bicycles.

Started cleaning the replacement battery box
While I'm doing that, I'll check the ground cables,etc. just to make sure everything is good.
This is the "freebie" a friend sent from Michigan !

It holds the lighting box.
