    Did an oil change and rode up the Santiago Peak ridge line one last time before my cancer surgeries and treatments.

    Oil change is only half of the work, dont forget the most important parts:

    https://advrider.com/f/threads/best-preps-for-winter-storage-990-adv.521480/


    And, from the 950 manual:

    Should you desire to make a pause over a longer space of time, please observe the following instructions:

    – Drive the tanks empty to be able to fill up with fresh fuel when starting the motorcycle up again.
    – Clean motorcycle thoroughly (see chapter: CLEANING)
    – Change engine oil and oil filter (old engine oil contains aggressive contaminations).

    – Check antifreezer and amount of cooling liquid.
    – Correct tire pressure.
    – Disassemble and charge battery (see chapter: BATTERY).
    – Jack up the motorcycle if possible so the wheels do not touch the ground.
    – The storage place should be dry and not subject to excessive temperature fluctuations.
    – Cover the motorcycle with an air permeated tarpaulin or blanket. Do not use non air permeable materials as a possible humidity might not be able to escape and could cause corrosion.

    All the best and get back here rather sooner than later.

    I was piddling around in the garage and had moved the camera from the car so got a quick shot of the bike post washing.

    I've almost got stuff shoved out of my wy enough to get the oil changed and play with the slave cylinder again.

    When I had a shed three times this size it too was filled to the brim with stuff that isn't mine. :fpalm
    I need less crap stored in my shed. :imaposer
    The shelves behind the bike are mostly photo albums from family we are going to scan. My wife is a third of the way through my dad's slide reels. I'm supposed to be adding names and titles and descriptions. I am, but, I'm slow and easily distracted.
    She is on reel #20 of 63. :hmmmmm

    Today I'm on grandpa duty. Oggy is napping so I can catch up on adv. :-)

    That Wilton is decidedly not part of the crap. Nor the bench bench it is bolted to. That Wilton came from the Douglas airplane plant in Long Beach. Salvage at $20 to me almost 20 years ago. The building it came out of is gone, but the part it was attached to is now a Mercedes Benz prep/distribution facility.

    My new expensive ride I’ll be sitting on for a while...

    Photon radiation gun 3-D mapped directly to a cancer tumor and loose cells trapped in my lymph nodes.

    [​IMG] Hoping this machine blows the cancer off the face of this earth... And I can get back to business as usual on my 950 Adventure again.
