What did I do to my C14 today?  Quite a bit of "pruning".  Removed almost all of the farkles that I've added over the years, as tomorrow I say goodbye to it.

Kinda sad, it took weeks to install this stuff, but only about 2 hours to take everything off...

I'll be posting stuff for sale soon :-)

I scored a V-Stream windshield for $151 delivered. With any luck, I should get it before my next trip.

Not exactly sure.  Leaving next Friday morning, gonna slide out to Pasadena, hook up with the boys and head out somewhere. Any day on the road is better than working....

Mine got a bath,  and polishing. Plugged into a battery tender while parked next to its Lil brother, Mr. Vmax. All tucked away for 3 weeks while I go back to work and fill the bank back up.
On the horizon is a trip around Lake Superior.

Gave a female co-worker a ride home.  ;)

Have a closet full of swag I bought for my ex, so I was able to outfit her properly. ATGATT!   :P

Replaced the fuel filter. My hat goes off  :salute: to the people that had the courage to tear theirs apart and post it online for schmucks like me.  With their help it was a very easy job and I now know just about to the vapors what my tank holds after the low fuel light comes on!  :banana  At 27K the screen was really black and had pieces of debris everywhere.

We rode out to Renovo PA to see Mt Hyner. Roads 144, 196,120, and 44 are to die for.

I changed the oil when I got back home with 1400 miles on the clock. I am
still using dino oil, and will change to synthetic at 2500 miles.

Dropped it off to get my second set of PR4GT's installed.  Just shy of 12 000km on them. Probably could of rode for another 4 or 5 hundred km but kept checking the back tire at ever stop for cords.

Got the rear part of the bike back together.  Bled the rear brakes.
