Painted my mirror housings with Rustoleum bed liner. I have to paint my lower fairings this week, I am torn between the bed liner and catalyzed matte black.   :feedback:
Bedliner is one of KLR owners' best friend.  Lot of guys paint their tanks and fairing areas with it.  If scratched, just patch it with more.  Try it, you'll like it... tomp

Rode it around King George today.  Changing the oil, oil filter, rear drive oil...

God, I love this bike. ;D

Nicole, thanks for starting this thread.   :finger_fing11: :banana   It's one of the longer running threads that we have but it's a keeper.

Agree with that.  On KLR650.net, there is a "what did..." thread for the gen ll's that started in 09, and is now 677 pages, with 13,539 replies.  A loyal bunch of riders there. Triumphrat.net has a "What did..." thread also started in 09, and it now has 1074 pages and 10,739 replies and over 1,009,000 views.   Some threads on ADV dwarf even those two.  Yes I am a member  and contributor to those two threads since they were relatively new. 

Hope to see this thread carry on for years to come, all thanks to Nicole, and those of us that really enjoy the C14.  tomp

I am amazed that it is on page 67. I would not have imagined that it would last so long. I do enjoy reading the posts that occur on here.

I think of it as the "almost anything goes" thread :)  Certainly does hold a record.  Fun thread, although I can't imagine any new member ever getting through it all!

With the right and interested person, it is not hard to do. Being mostly retired and single, if I find  threads, especially on ADV, that interests me, I will spend as many hours of spare time possible, reading it/them.  Never stop learning, I've been told. 

For example, on ADV, here's the C14 thread.  159 pages, 2378 replies.  Some of the same are here, but many there who are not.  I started on page 1, and since subscribed to updates.

I'll take some phone pics and vids. Would also love to see Rossi win but 93 sooooo dominated this track last year, I'm not holding my breath.

Oil change and a quick spin before the rain hit. I can't begin to say how much happier she rides right after an oil change. It's awesome.
