Finally finished getting my GoPro mounted - cable length is still an issue, but it is usable now and applied frame paint to my scuffed metal that started to show rust.

Next up: Wash, wax and then I am done - I am going to get some riding in **** it!

Keep the wheels down and ride!

Did an oil and filter change. Wash, wax'd and detail'd. Added some seafoam. Keep thinking about adding more farkles but so far restraining myself.

I forgot to mention I finished my trunk lighting too. It is on a motion sensor at the moment. Once I find a switch for the trunk lid that will work and be "invisible" (I hate it when you can see stuff) I will switch the motion sensor out. Doesn't work too well with a trunk full of stuff

OK, so you lubed up your tires, lubed up your brake rotors and lubed up your brake pads? Now you are going to liquor up and go for a ride? I hope this is a joke, else it's been nice knowing ya!

Started re-stripping the faux tank.
As i was applying the final coat,the air regulator failed,and it spewed paint all over,and blew out the seal in my paint gun.
Managed to get one side-bag done,before the temps hit the 90's.

Took a ride with friends from Las Vegas, NV to St. George, UT (~110 miles each way) for breakfast at Cracker Barrel. Updated my Sena Bluetooth set to the latest firmware version. FINALLY got the CB receiving and transmitting off of the Bluetooth setup. Sweeeetttttttt.

Preparing the bike for riding from Mom's in Guadalajara to in Law's in Jerahuaro, 200 mi Higway ride, rain expected so I need to find and attach the waterproof layers for my wife's Olympia Jacket and Pants, that is why I like Firstgear's the outer shell is waterproof, just close the vents and ready for the heaviest downpour, on the way from bahia de Banderas to Guadalajara, whrn approaching to the Highway Toll road, I felt something hitting my right boot, noticed the chromed side engine cover got out of place, if not for my leg, it would go out, so I stopped, noticed I didn't checked it when the oil change a few days back, I re attached it carefully and keep the ride, yesterday filled up, most of the luggage is already loaded, so in an hour or so we left.

Retired&Riding.
