What did you do today?
« on: July 05, 2009, 12:33:13 PM »
Like the 'bought' thread, this isn't meant to be specifically about M/C. Post up what you did today, that might be out of the ordinary (or hell, post about your ordinary day too!)

The day is still young, but I got up and changed my oil on the Kat. It was 600 miles overdue. I have 13050 on the odo now, so I did about 8k in a year.
I just finshed up some lunch, and I'll be heading back out to wash her a bit.

Had breakfast, Rode my ass off, made 3 ice cream stops, visited a couple of old time general stores, finished fixing the garage doors, and now I'm here.

I did my chain today, too. It's about time for the warning stickers ;)


I just had another dogie run in front of the bike while on the grass issue. This time I sustained some damage to the seat cowl. :(

I wet sanded, then patched, wet sanded and buffed. Its not going to be perfect, but its significantly better than before. I'm still pretty upset about it, and I wish there was a way I didn't ahve ot take this street bike on the (wet) grass.

I am sorry to hear the bike got messed though. Was it your own dog that got in the way? If so, maybe lock the pooch in the house while you're grass riding?

Yeah its my own dog. She is perpetually outside during the summer. Its my own fault I was riding a little too fast. Oh well. After my repairs, the damage isn't too bad. I have extra paint, too, so I could fix it if I care enough. Give me a day or two and I wont care at all. It's only a bike, afterall.
