Either a car or a BMW K1600 would be my guess.

Finding a new OEM windshield for these is nearly impossible. I got this one for the inevitable.

In anticipation of my Tech Day on Saturday I made this in about 2 minutes:



Should help the FFs to take their oil home with them.

I also have the lever. Use it mainly to dismount. I use tire irons to mount, I never got the lever to work that well and it's super simple to use irons with the stand.

Yesterday I finally cracked and decided to change the front tire on the Harley.
With the really stiff sidewalls, I expected to have to throw in the towel and take it in.
I've heard the guys bitching when using the machines.

Using 3 motion pro levers and a harbor freight bead breaker, the whole thing took less than an hour.
It was actually the easiest tire I've changed so far but breaking the bead was a bitch. Something about getting 24k miles out of a tire I'm sure.

The rear will get changed in June. I hope it will be similar.

Next weekend... GARAGE SALE!!!!

Yesterday I rode... then I came home and did a service on my FZ6's chain, checking chain slack, cleaned, lubed, and waxed.
