Maybe now Cav can afford something other than Shinkos...

What did you do to your FJR thirteen years ago... remembering my pal Coach Russ G.

Loved it. Thanks for sharing. I have been photographing and making videos of all my riding adventures for as long as there were camcorders and cameras. I enjoy creating the memories and sharing them with the friends I ride with or just create something to remember later on. I wish there was a spot on the Forum where people could post their videos. A dedicated area. I am not talking about endless footage of the road, nobody wants to see that, but videos like yours where you can see others adventures. It might be boring for many but I enjoy it plus you get a chance to see what other areas look like. Thanks again.

The FJR got to watch while I took the wing apart for major service. You haven't lived until you do the air filter in a wing.

Have watched it rain torrentially all day long in N. GA. Glad I'm on high ground, lot's of flooding going on. If it was cold here, we'd have a foot of snow. Reminds me of the saying, Fight like you're the third monkey in line to Noah's Ark, and brother, it's starting to rain!

Walked by her to get in the car, as I have done since a little after Thanksgiving. Promised her she'd be back together before the end of March. (And perhaps ridden around in the neighborhood soon thereafter.)

I still want to try a Russell, even though I love my Laam.

Goddamn it’s been rainy. I’ve ridden in a monsoon damn near every day this week. My front and back yards have standing water and they normally drain quite well.

Bike hasn’t been dry in a while. Have to hang gear up with a fan otherwise there’s no chance of it being dry the next morning.

As usual, with spring in sight, I’ve pondered pulling the Cee Bailey and putting one of the other shields on, and considered pulling the barkbuster storms. But it’s really not time yet. Might do it anyway....

Installed a bracket I made for hella plugs. It is a tight fit, but it works!

Installed my new Hiflofiltro air filter. Very impressed with Hiflo, looks just as good as OEM, but quite a bit less expensive. I also bought the Hiflo oil filter and that looks good too.

I wanted to do this for my Hagon shock adjuster, but I ended up with the adjuster facing the back.

Image

Of course, the only drawback is that adjuster is more in the slip stream of the "crap" in the wheelwell, and the saddlebag has to be removed to make the adjustment. So far, it hasn't been an issue.
