    I'm thinking I'll try every 10k miles until i hit 100k. That motor will scream at 10,000 rpm.

    :lol3 y'all are funny! :loco

    Today's fun.
    Oil & filter, chain & sprockets, rear wheel bearings, used rear tire, used rotor and pads. (old one now looks better than the new one)

    Still need to clean the air filter and make a closer inspection of that coolant leak. (new hose on order)

    Hopefully that'll at least get me through leaf peep'n season. :ricky

    p.s. odo @ 115,591

    A picture that I took of Jock up on the BRP made the front page of a Norton site. Seems he won the longest distance award at a rally he attended. http://www.ntnoa.org/ :clap

    Weather finally broke down here and just in time for Piratetoberfest. You should add another 1000 to the odo for some shenanigans (see below pix) and wings :D.

    Well....I trimmed the end off that upper radiator hose where it's been leaking intermittently, looking for some 'new' rubber to clamp onto. Appears the hose isn't my problem. :bluduh The radiator itself seems to be what's leaking.....now...maybe it's a good thing I'm not down at Biktoberfest right now.

    I wondered when you were eventually going to wear out a "hard part" on that bike.

    Maybe you should start a dialogue with Suzuki NA about your miles and riding habits. They may want you as an advertising asset. Then you could slip them the , "Oh BTW, my radiator started leaking at 115K". Maybe some sponsorship kind of help - you could be their first 200K Strom rider with a little support. :deal

    Missed ya at the Old's Cool Rally.

    Joining in with the leaf peepers on the BRP.....colors were better on the lower roads though.

    [​IMG]














    Many trees are already bare except for the boring brown oaks.

    [​IMG]














    Don't despair, there's still some color.... :norton
