Today I did the breather mod for my XB Lightning.  I also gave her a bath and cleaned the wheels.

wasnt just today, but the last 5 days.  just completed about a 2800klm round trip with between 7 and 23 other buellers.

rode through mountain pass, rain, drizzle, sunshine, fog, narrow goat track roads, back roads, twisties, sweepers, and a friendly chat with a police cop to check our licenses.

AWESOME!

I rode it around a bit then I pulled off the exhaust to send to Randy over at Hawk. While I was at it, I also dropped the oil pump to check the drive gear. Thankfully it looked great. Now it's going to be a long wait to get the exhaust back so I can put it all back together.

I pulled the front wheel bearings out of my S3 today. I will order new bearings and a spacer tomorrow and reassemble it next weekend.

I stared at my forks and a Duc fender i picked up.  Trying to decide if i modify the fender to fit or just make brackets. Body working the fender to fit is more work but...  Sigh.  I stare at my bike and overthink stuff regularly.

Took her out and forced fresh air down her intake at 80mph. Got home and did the crankcase breather reroute.  Oh and my new levers and grips from Ride-It are fantastic that happened last week.

Waxed her, and covered her up but I just bought some fuel stabil and seafoam. Going to possibly start her back up this upcoming weekend to get those fluids in her...that sounds bad.

Cleaned the little air filter I installed during the breather reroute, polished my RT-1, made a new gasket for the small two screw inspection cover on the left side, took a ride and then had a beer in the garage listening to the 09 'bolt cool down.  Life can be good!

only reason I decide to end my ride for the day.

Today the bike sat in the cold garage.  but tomorrow, it is getting new decals, and some polishing.  Then Friday my bars come in and I reassemble the controls.    Then if its not snowing out, finally enjoy my bike with its new R front end!!!

Gave her a good wash today.  She needed it - I didn't have anything to cover her with while I was building a new ported box.

But she's squeaky clean now!

Not a thing, my bike has been neglected  (wrapped in a cover) for the past month, At that point I did change the oil, give it a good detail, and prep it for winter. It needed it after sitting for 2 months in grit due to riding it in the rain on Labor Day weekend and then parking it for the year.

Next time it will see the sun will most likely be April, as for mods it is set. Just a background now and again on my laptop

Good one
