Done

Got Yellaphant all serviced tonight in prep for the upcoming trip. New rear tire, plugs, air filter, tranny and final drive fluids changed, valves adjusted (only two out). Only thing not done was to service the throttle bodies, can't remember who I loaned my TwinMax to. Old age sucks at times.

Gonna service DaMorons WeeStrom tomorrow and then we'll both be ready for the Mancation.

Coming up, 11 days of bachelorhood road travel!
