You okay? ATTGATT, like yer sposta?
That's why I'm not hurt, fer sure. I just slid all the way across that road.
The bike is a bit heavier and harder edged than I, and she didn't fare so well.

So Today.....The dealer is putting a bunch of new Insurance-Company-paid-for shiny new parts on it

Pried my frozen hands off of the handlebars. 50 degrees and sunny this afternoon, and I ride into the office. Sub zero and snowing a little when I get done! Still loved it!

I rode mine to work too... 70 degrees here right now - 78 is our forecast tomorrow

I'll bet you can guess what I'll be doing tomorrow

Of course we'll be back down below freezing Sunday night


Thanks for the reminder dad2bike - my front brakes are getting a bit soft. Probably overdue for a flush.

Why didn't you just use the centerstand?

Because you have to release the center stand bolt during the install.

I put jack stands under the crash bars to hold my bike vertical when I installed mine

Hmmm. OK. I have a PABiker relocate bracket. This Old mind don't remember what step I did to mount it up.
A mind is a terrible thing to lose.

I would have to agree. Yes, it is.

I can feel mine slipping-away...more and more...everyday.


In regard to the BDCW sidestand kit...just to give another idea to those who haven't done it, yet...I put my bike on the trailer.

There are some weeks where you should just leave the bike in the garage

Tuesday, I had to change a bearing on the road side.



While doing it I found this...



And this morning, saturday, ...











Can't wait for next week...

Sorry to hear about all this. Bad luck comes in threes. So they say.


So with that, Next week should be great. Right?

Swapping sproingy bits with another inmate and will install the BD side stand re-locator upon reassembly. Since I flipped up the subframe and pulled the exhaust, I thought I might as well order a 2-1 for when it all goes back together.

What do you do with the left side can? Anyone want to buy a left side FMF tiQ4?
