I so would have if there was any hotties around. But the crowd was a bit older than I was willing to go. Milf? Yeah right. Maybe 20 years ago.

My chain got always dry, because of the dirt behind the sprocket.












Dried clay behind the fork protection, became hard like a pebble stone.

Did my first oil change today and man, what a pain in the ass! 3.5 hours. Glad I had the CJ oil hose kit to install on this one because that sucked and I don't wanna have to do that everytime just to change the blood!

Also put this on the truck to see if it'll carry the big girl in case I ever have to retrieve her or drop her off for warranty stuff.

This is what I didn't like about my hitch carrier. Can't see the taillight a of the truck. Barely have a shot of the right one and none of the left. Probably would not be bad with some extra light mounted on the carrier itself.

Oil change, sixth rear tyre for the year, fifth front, new wheel bearings (only one feeling a bit dry, but water in around them all), padded the radiator where the tank was rubbing, some other bits and pieces and... made her a new "centrestand"
