Drop a blue pill in the reservoir.

Hung it on a hook.

Still waiting to pic up the front wheel with its nice new PR2.

The luxury sheds floor would collapse under the bikes weight during the shed project part 2 so under the deck looked like a fine place to do the job. It's raw and windy here today. I am spoiled with the shed.

Went to unlock the side case and snap goes the key. Had to remove the tumblers to get out the broken piece.

Have another key but it isn't in any better shape. Have 2 new blanks so off to the lock smith tomarrow.

Cleaned/lubed the kickstand switch after it wouldn't extend all the way at work, then stopped at AutoZone for a couple tail light bulbs.  One was burned out, but I changed both.  Emergency parking lot repairs.

Installed an Ohlins shock on the Vulcan 2000.  





Wondering whether the Ohlins fork springs I've just ordered will be tall to work with the gold valve cartridge emulators I got in the mail today....  Bedtime.

New Driven D3 grips installed finally.  It's amazing what the right tools and following directions will accomplish.  Black with brushed aluminum trim rings.  The black milled Throttlemeister bar ends should go well with them when the show up later this week.

The new Axio hard shell tank and tail bags showed up Friday.  The tank bag is surprisingly nice and fits the bike well.  No interference anywhere in the entire handlebar range.  I snagged the set off eBay for just $165 shipped.

Throttlemeisters were here when I got the mail.   Banana  Got them installed and adjusted.  They'll get tested on the ride to work tomorrow.  Otoh, still no tires from SWMoto.  It's been 8 days now. Rolleyes

Good job Doug!

Nothing like a thorough wreck and walk away to complete the day!!!

You are OK, right?




All I did was put the rear tire on and chase down the intermittent Neutral indicator gremlin.

You do know that your supposed stay on the track. Rite?

I think the shifter needs to be adjusted.

No crash is good but if you can walk away that's good.

I forgot, it's called, "Re: What did you do to your bike today."   Lol

John and Ed, I'm fine.  The ego is bruised more than anything.  I didn't like the way they cut the grass in turn 8 and 9 area so I took care of it myself.  

A front wheel (on it's side) does better than you think when it comes to mowing grass (especially at 90 MPH)

I'll need to rebalance the front wheel now.  What do you think?

Sleezy - that's such a beautiful Triumph.  The tank bag looks good.

Got the throttlemeisters in four days including the weekend!  That's service.  They were installed last night and tested fine today. Bigok

That rear tire in the package?  Received today from SWMoto tires.  8 days after ordering.  Still no sign of the front tire.
