With Spring breaking, and the snow gone, the Honda has been the ride to work for the last 2 weeks.
Besides getting half frozen once or twice, it's like I wanna get up early to hit the road.
And, after work it's like, "wow. I get to go riding again."
Anyone else got a few of the ride to the salt mine?
'bout 8am, gotta be there at 830 or 9.
Time to go.
I finally dusted off my bike this last night. I installed a new battery a few weeks ago but haven't ridden it. One of my front turn signals was hanging by a thread. I got a new mount of ebay and it came in yesterday. For some reason, I've got different turn signal mounts than most. Turns out they are off a Shadow or Magna. I'm not sure if someone swapped forks, the triple tree, or what. The signals themselves are CB-750, rectangular ones. But the mount is a rubber deal that wraps around the fork tube. It also has a non stock headlight. I'm thinking someone rode it into a tree or something at some point in it's life and had to replace the forks and headlight.
I rode to work today. 44 miles with a 40 MPH headwind most of the way. But it was a nice ride just to ride again. Looking forward to the ride home, I'll have a tailwind!. Only one day of riding this month. May isn't looking much better with rain and even a snow flurry or two on the 1st!.
Bike seemed OK. I treated the fuel with SeaFoam before parking it for the winter. It started right up. I noticed the valve cover gasket is leaking profusely. It used to just weep a bit but it's pretty bad now. I'm gonna have to break down and check the valves and replace the gasket. Just not looking forward to dealing with those stupid shims, but I've put it off too long.
