    You may want to check your wheel bearings.

    I SHOULD do a lot of things to that bike.... but WILL I? we'll see.
    The rear wheel bearings prolly have 9262 miles on them according to the odometer.
    Oh damn... that's another thing that needs to be replaced on that bike, the speedo cable. That broke in the beginning of the summer.

    I heard some of you guys wash the mud and dust off your bikes after a ride? is that good?
