Last ride of the season today. :'(
« on: December 19, 2011, 11:20:04 pm »
It was to work and back.  I ran it on reserve the whole way to drain the tank out as much as possible.  I need it light so I can take it apart.

The shipyard started holiday curtailment, and I have shoulder surgery on the 29th, so this is it.  Last ride until May/June when I get cleared by the doc.

This is the first time since I started riding that I've not ridden through the winter.  But I can't sleep my shoulder is so bad.

The good news:  I finally have time to send my carbs and cams to Florida to get Sissified.  I also need to rezipper my leather jacket and have repairs done on both my leather pants.  And I sent my boots off to Spokane to get refurbed.  If I get bored enough I may attempt to repair the many cracked/scratched/gouged pieces of plastic on the bike.  If I get really really bored, I may attempt to get it 1/10th as clean as bergman's.  We'll see.

I am going to have to get a battery tender.  So weird.  I have fresh oil in it.  What else to you do to a hibernating bike?

Wish me luck!
