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.

I think a wash and wax also enhances the ride

Around here, cleaning the bug guts off the windshield makes the difference.

Cleaned and lubed the windscreen sliders and the levers.  Getting ready to ride it to Southside VA this morning.

Ha- I will be riding up that way tomorrow to visit Mom.  Bike isn't very clean, and I don't have time to clean it today.

Around here, cleaning the bug guts off the windshield makes the difference.

Yeah, well, last night I got the first bug splats on my shield and windscreen this year :(   Let the bugs begin... (Oh, it was over 83F here.... freaky)

Well, was going to ride it to work.  It was on empty, and no gas station time.  Took the RT instead.  A really nice bike, but it's NO C14, for sure.   Happy Easter to all who celebrate it.  tomp

I prefer to think of it as, A dirty bike is a sure sign of a lazy owner.

Possibly the sign of a very busy owner.  But in my case, it would probably be the lazy one.  Mine are all looking good and clean, mainly because I don't ride when it's wet.  That's why I have a car.

Went for a 150 mile ride, got it up on the centerstand and am currently draining the oil. Very simple to do. My suzuki 1100e  is a project to change the oil. Off to Wally World... :-)
