I always noticed that sig, love your ducky and rub her cush bushings.
I wish I had the money and space to own one.

I finally swapped the crush washer to rid the nagging oil drip. She is happy yet again. I'll ride her tomorrow since the FZ is still torn down waiting on parts.

I worked in the back yard on my bikes for many years. I always hated it. When I built my house last November I solved that problem. My garage is literally as big as my house. I'm a teacher so I can't afford to have other people work on my stuff or I wouldn't have any stuff.

Never enough toys! I have 2 more 4 wheelers on the left that I'm working on and I'm hoping to add a Z125 or Grom into the mix soon.

All that space and my car sleeps outside.

Did the same to the R1 and GF's Ninja 650 as I did the FZ1 today. Fresh oil, filter, chain cleaning and wipe down. Oh and tire pressure.

I'm envious, I was planning on taking the 09 out but then we got more snow yesterday and a liberal amount of salt on the road again here in the cities .

Snowed up my way as well yesterday. I just took it easy in the curves. Just had to find out if my repaired shoulder could handle the riding position. Arkansas trip is coming up quick!

Rode 240 miles today. 150 on my R1. About 90 on the new MV Agusta Brutale 1090RR.
Spent more time on the R1 to test my shoulder.
Wished I could have had been able to break in the new Brute more. Didn't get rolling until noon. Waited for Temps to get above 40 first. Ended up in the 60s in the southern part of the state.
Colder Temps and rain chances for the week will keep the miles low.
