Then, you'll see a 15 year old in a cheerleader outfit holding a can for donations outside the bank, and instead of reeling your tongue in, you'll think to yourself "what a nice young lady, she's sweet".

And then you'll go to pee one time, and think you're done. You'll shake it, think it's all empty, and take 15 steps away only to feel that nature has broken your little pee valve and there's JUST enough left in the tube to produce an awesome "old fart" pee blotch on your khakis.

It only gets worse from there. You'll groan when you have to reach 12" for a toothbrush, and you'll actually consider that a minivan is "pretty handy". You'll find lots of hair in your ears, and you'll curse kids for not knowing that 90's rock was pretty cool.

Age. It's comin for ya, and it's all icky and old-smelling.
STOP looking in my window.....and stay off my lawn!

I decided to quit being so cheap and bought some stuff to make life on the road a little easier. Like a waterproof rafting bag to replace the mail bag and an inflatable mattress. I'm still being cheap on the mattress- I got a $10 pool one (the heavier duty one at least) since I won't be using it very often. And a nice portable air pump for the mattress and in case of a flat.
I did a dry run setup today to make sure everything would re-pack small enough to fit back in the bag. I still need to fit some clothes in there but there's room I think. The tube has my tool kit and a liter of fuel just in case.
The only thing I haven't figured out is how much oil to take and where to put it. If it was my old suzuki I could pick it up at any gas station but I don't feel like tracking down a bike dealer while on a trip in order to get some motorcycle specific oil.


(Yeah, I live on the outskirts of Flatistan)

In the tank bag. I couldn't find a cheap throw down wallet so I'll just throw the cat in a robbers face until I can get to my ankle gun.

Brandon, any oil will do, especially in a pinch.

I always use the cheapest dino crap they have at NAPA, and this last change on teh Strom used up the rest of an old gallon of 10W-30 that I had from when I owned that old Toyota.

You could literally use water to lubricate an engine in a dire emergency... I don't recommend that, but the point is if that is possible then any oil will be fine. Spending $$ on high dollar opil for the Ninja is like buying Glaser Safety Slugs for range practice in a Hi-Point. Or something...
