I ordered a "plug-n-play" harness for my trailer !

I hope it's as simple as it seems

.

I drive way to fast to worry about my cholesterol

Last Saturday I planned on doing nothing all day, and by noon, I was half way done!

Rode it to the shop to see why it was puking oil.

My son and I replaced the alternator last night and fired it up for about 10 minutes. No problems at all, and it was putting out 13.9 volts at idle. No oil on the garage floor at all, either before or after.

This morning we set off on a ride to Cherryvale, KS and Tommy's Diner for a torpedo burger. Three of us left Muskogee and stopped off in Broken Arrow to meet up with a fourth. I went inside the QT for a drink, and when I came back out, I noticed a small puddle of oil about even with the kickstand. There was oil all over the front of the left saddlebag, too. Sigh. I turned around and babied it to the local dealer while my friends continued on north. At least this time I was able to ride it in instead of having to get towed.

And Tommy's Diner was closed.

The shop called me about 3:30. Turns out we'd pinched the O-ring on the alternator when we reinstalled it.

Service manager didn't want me to worry about it all weekend.

Loaded the bike up on the trailer and got it snugged down tight, 7 ways from Sunday.

at 0-Dark thirty or whenever I wake up, heading out for NASR-11 in Greendale, IN.
or Lawrenceburg which is where it actually is.

Friday rode to Charleston, SC for Va appointments. While on 701 into Georgetown hit a chuck hole and blew left fork seal.leaking a little oil out seal no big problem right.made Charleston ok .after appointments pulled in station and checked air pressure on tires and forks.tires ok front forks down to ten pounds,usually run around 18.adjust pressure up and head home.now the problem starts.every tar snake or bump on hyway 17 and 701 ,as I cross each one get a load click in front end .not when shocks compress but when they extend. Today ordered progressive springs, new seal and dust covers from Dennis Kirk.new parts by Thursday. So on the jack until then.will start disassembling tomorrow. Hope it ain't busted up to bad. Anyone had this issue on their Oldwing.i got 108419 miles and did seals and dust covers I think in January when I did tires.have little over 7 thousand miles on her since then.

Not the destination, but the ride

Changed the oil and filter on the Hunley. Only 50 miles on the oil, but it was the first fifty since I brought it home in 2013 and did a lot of work to the engine including rebuilding the heads. Moved the seat back ~ 1/2" to clear the side covers when opened/closed. I had run a little MMO in the oil and gas for the last ~44 miles, so I hope it has cleaned out anything that needed cleaned out. Oil was unremarkable - a little ferrous "muck" stuck to the magnet in the drain plug, but all soft like it was rust or such that I suspect came from the cylinders scraped off by the rings early on. A few "shinny metal particles" in the bottom of the drain pan, but no more than I've seen in my GL1800 drain from time-to-time. More likely shavings from head and block leveling that wasn't trapped or washed out when I did that to the right side back in 2013.

Well I changed the Timing Belts, Changed the oil and filter, Put the other air shock from my LTD and replaced the rear brake Pads. Also changed the Spark Plugs. Before anybody gets to excited about the air shocks being from a GL1200. I replaced the 1500 shock with 1 of the 1200 shocks about 6 months ago. Today I replaced the coil over with the other one and plumed with the air lines from the LTD. The shocks had new boots and I took them apart and cleaned them out and filled them with fluid. With the one shock and the coil over I only run 25 lbs of air and it rides nice. So we will see how it does with a matched pair. Now I get to clean everything and put it all back together. It was a 105 today in the shade so I think this evening or tomorrow morning it will get back together. I shipped my radio off to Sierra Electronic's for the aux in fix. Good time to get stuff done. I'm wondering how other 1500 owners are getting power for the chargers. Are you adding a cig lighter in the dash or do you just tap power some where for a charger in a pocket. Now would be a good time to do this. I thought about just running a line from the battery to the right saddle bag and using that to charge the phone. I could mount a cig lighter in the saddle bag and use my car charger.
