I ride again the Wing, ( the Beemer is still covered, no time to uncover and start it, maybe tomorrow ) went main town, to the Hospital ai used to work for, must pick and sign documents related with my retirement pension every other month or they will cancel deposits to my account, then decided to go a close motorcycle shop, owner is son of a close friend, asked if a mechanic could perform oil change, they were available right away, only thing is I can't find 10W-40 oil of any kind, only choice in town is 20W50... PO used Mobil1 Moto 20W50, so I keep using it, today I choose Maxima Syn Blend, when taking off the side cover for pouring oil, I found one of the plastic plugs on the cover was broken, so now I am glueing the plug, using some epoxy weld, and a hot small nail to reinforce the plastic, in the middle of the groove the plug has, waiting for the epoxy to cure, bike washed meanwhile, lot of heat, lot of sweat, I joked with my wife: let's go tomorrow, nomrain, heavy sun, too much humid warm weather!
Anyway the Wing is ready for the long ride starting on Sunday! Tomorrow the Beemer will get my attention: starting test, rear shock replacement (Sachs OEM out, freshly repaired Íhlins in ) also will replace the useless OEM halogen aux lights for Cree Led lights.
