Shakedown cruise for the risers and crash bars.

Risers made quite a difference, 2 inches does not seem like much but gets your hands up and back straight. Will go source some 10mm SS studs tomorrow, with SS nylocks.

Crash bars work great. Can put feet on them like hiway pegs, or rest calf on them, legs straight out. Will be nice on the superslab. Change of position always breaths new life into the 'ol body.

Also brought back an Air Hawk seat cushion. Too early to tell yet, but nice. Took a while to get used to it as you move around some, but feel is great.

Sat.--Had shop replace L/F cowling, black plastic,

cracked from ceeber down at Umphang 

a while back, B600.

Sun.--Removed the week-old, but filthy chain from Climber.

Cleaned in diesel fuel and w/ toothbrush.

A pain.

Maybe just buy a new one every week.

Like $10-12 for these '480' chain.

Donate dirty to some poor Thai with old rusty chain.

Dunno.

Oh, rode the Cota around in circles and hopped some logs 

'n' such.

Sweaty.

Rode ceeber 25km home, so cool.

;-)

Built it it's own little house. Turquoise walls outside, white walls inside, with contrasting red steel-work.

 

Pin up pictures of other bikes to make it feel at home, some naked, others scantily clad. 

 

Plus we all need a vice.

'09 Yamaha,

Ol' Sparky135 began running poorly at higher power setting.

Embarrassing when pulling out across traffic.!!

Figured carb or air-filter.

Took to shop for new air-filter, oi, & oi-filter.

Service: chain, centre- and side-stands.

Mechanic test ride.

Good to go.

1989 Honda JX110

 

Switched the old indicator lights for some new LED ones. Needed to change the flasher as well.

 

Much brighter than the old ones, which didn't work.

Used speed cleaner on my bike.  A Thai version of muck off or S100.  Much cheaper of course.  Used 4 times now and thus far the pain hasn't melted.

 

Thought I'd give it a go on my Weber BBQ.  Bad idea, can't light the thing now!

Noticed that the rear tire on ceeber 

was getting thin

after ~14.000km

so took her in

to I-Moto

north on Sukhumvit 

on the left before the 3240 turn-off.

They had the 100/80-17 Michelin Street Pilot in stock.

The front wheel & tire be new,

but had them open it to install dynabeads

and also apply red rim tape.

The mechanic, Bop is 19.

Very thorough.

He has been working here at least 4 years that Ive seen.

papa has bought many tires from these guys.

B1400, not bad.

10 satang per kilometer.

No rain.

Messed up a decal I was trying to apply to a fairing I'm replacing.

Did the same thing trying to apply a sticker to my pick-up rear window.

Good with tools, terrible with stickers.
