    And the associated vid from Sundays effort.....



    And besides motos, the common bond is fine craft suds. We're all regulars at the Ormond Brewing Co and follow up a day at the farm with a brewery debrief! :beer

    This is the work I have performed on my 690 over the last few weeks. Replaced the air filter , changed the oil , had the shock body replaced as it was leaking , installed the stock springs , replaced the fork oil , serviced the shock linkage , installed new tires , balanced them and installed a BRG rubber mounted handle bar system . Also installed new front brake pads as I use the front brake 90% of the time and lubed and adjusted the chain . I need to go on a test ride in the next few days before I take off on the Georgia ride . I hope I was paying attention and have no issues .

    Took all the shit out of my Kili Air, soaked it overnight in some Shout, then ran a couple cycles in the washer with some Tech Wash, with the liner hung them to dry. I think that jacket is actually red in some spots now.

    Thanks. It has gone through half a dozen different iterations over the years.

    Here's a photo I call "Time Passages". Top half is from about Jan 1996, with two of my boys and I going out for a ride in the woods. Bottom half is from mid-2010. I might have to get 'em back again and take another pic. Younger boy is in Seattle, older boy is in Seoul, South Korea. 'Boys' - heh. 28 and 26 nowadays... :D

    I think the piston and rings are still healthy too

    Warmed it up, to change the coolant. Figured while I was taking it back apart I’d throw the old snap on tester on it.

    Finally dug in and discovered why my Denali horn wasn't working. Got a support case opened with Revzilla. Hopefully they will replace my CANSmart unit.

    I keep tellin' him to send it back west for a reflogging, but he just mumbles something about needing to put another tank through it.
