the starter button still works on the drz. i found that out after tripping over the lug of a bike for the 453'rd time.

a fresh tank of super hi powa 86 octane made for an afternoons worth of really crappy wheelies.

thankfully i found the tag sticker in the glovebox of the camry, and stuck it on. it was only 8-9 months out of service. maybe i can get another 20 years out of the bike, at this milage rate !
just give 'er the berries !

Got stickers off the exhaust. Not pictured: fluids and filter for oil, filter and final drive service.

Decided its about time I have a street bike again and decided to order some parts. Yup I'm apparently getting sane or going insane not sure which yet.

Bought expensive Honda oil, the filter and drain plug washer at Pinnacle (see NEW Moto Shop thread).
Took off more pieces than I needed to, trying to get to the filler neck.
Took off more pieces than I needed to, trying to get to the oil filter. Fail. Haven't got it off yet.
After 2 hours of scratching my head and pulling off bodywork, I ran out of daylight, had to cover the bike and move the pieces inside.
Going back to the ST1300 forum to find a better way... I ain't a-gonna ride it, with all the oil dripped out.
You must be the change you wish to see in this world.

Put new tires and heavy duty tubes on the KTM today.  I'll do an oil change tomorrow night, and it'll be ready for another big ride.

Fresh meat...


Only 1800 miles on that TKC80, and it's nearly smoked.

Changed the oil, pulled the fuel pump and changed the filter and screen, then got bored and pulled the header to scrub off the baked-on mud...
