Talking What did you do to your FZ today?

As for me I installed red reflective rim stripes, cleaned wheels with bug, tar remover and painted the heel plates with satin black krylon fusion.

Nothing!!! I moved in February and it's still sitting in my brothers garage 100 miles away!!! It's driving me nuts, haven't been able to get into new house yet and nowhere to put it. I may have to go get it this weekend and keep it covered outside until we get into new house!

Talking

Today, I only rode it, just like pretty much any other day. A whole lot of splitting lanes with a fiew bursts of open highway and some onramp offramp fun.

However....

TOMMOROW
My suspension is arriving, and I'm going to install the Penske shock I got from Traxxion.

THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW
I will install 1.0 rate fork springs and Traxxion fork cartridges as well as replace the seals and fork oil.

THE DAY AFTER THAT

Test ride on some of the finest twisties in the World!

Hey I said some of the best, not THE best. I speak of the Malibu and the Santa Monica Mountains, my lifelong stomping grounds.

If perhaps, you don't think they are some of the best twisties and conditions to ride them in, you are entitled to your opinion.

As for Palomar, you know, I usually get down there once a year, managing to hit Julian on the way or back for some chow. Nice roads down there, but I wouldn't say they are any worse or better, just a whole lot farther. Plus you got all those Charger and Padre fans down there!

Made cool looking blister tracks on the sidewalls.
Kissed it goodnight with bugs still kicking in the radiator.

They like that.
