    Yep, we had about a foot on the ground, but the temps have been warm and it's melting fast. No snow in the forecast.

    Rode two up to the next town over to have lunch at a new chinese buffet with a few friends, then we all went to see "Memoirs of a geisha"

    I was promised large monkeys and machine guns and Jack Black. There was none of this in the movie we saw.:cry

    I guess it turned out good. I don't want to think about where we would have eaten before seeing Kong...:puke1

    Today I changed the engine oil and fork oil. Tomorrow bleed brakes, change out radiator fluid, check valve clearances, do a canisterectomy, etc etc.

    You mean racks (plural)!:D You should see the massive collection of Snap On tools that I get to dip into.:eek1 It is really amazing how many little things you find to tweak when you get all the plastic/seat/tank/wheels etc off. Kinda scary what gets loose, falls off, gets bent, gets grungy. The kind shop owner isn't letting me slide on anything either. He looked at my battery and made me re-route and reconnect all my wiring:nono . I thought it looked fine:razor . He also made me sponge off most of the Chaingolian splooge before I was allowed to touch a Snap on.:augie
    Nice guy to let me use his space and tools.:thumb
