Started the progressive fork springs on the from of my GL1200. Also read the instructions on my jack, since I had the strap on wrong! Works good though.

I have a couple of those auto paint cups with all of the numbers to measure liquids.

I couldn't fix my brakes so I made the horn louder
Motor started to knock. Turned up the radio.

What Bruce said. I finish with a large syring, measuring in ccs.

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.

Got the springs all in and done, Front and Rear done. Those little squeeze bottles from Harbor Freight are awesome, so glad I bought a pack of them a few weeks back.Went for a ride really noticed the tires are planted now, never really knew what I was missing! Just glides at high speeds 100+, helped some with grooved pavement as well. Burned half a tank of gas just running the road.
Took a pic. of the springs then almost killed myself stepping on them a few minutes later!!! Think I'll cut and weld them to some re bar and use them for Fishing rod holders!
