routine. jet lag. oil change. maintenance. updates

so last night was a great night. a bunch of us headed to the VEC for some bowling/pizza party action for Alicia's birthday and then proceeded onto the Turf Room (the bar behind my house) for some more drinks and karaoke....

I was hoping that I would just get drunk and then that would put me to sleep to beat the jet lag. BUT instead, I got home, the jetlag kicked in making me feel like it was 5PM instead of 1AM. So there I was, drunk as hell, and WIDE AWAKE while its pouring rain outside and Leigh Anne going to sleep.

so I just preheated the oven, and myself some dinner.....

today, woke up around 11:30 feeling fine. Leigh had some floral lab stuff to do, so I finally got around to giving the bike the needed oil change and transmission/primary fluid change it needed. Runs like a champ now and snapped a few update pics:









that last picture is showing the final result of my rewiring I did of the bike. an on/off switch, on/off/on switch, and a momentary switch later and the bike runs and I still have my high/low beam. super fantastic.

I'm going to work on a better seat mounting scenario later this week and hopefully get some pipes made up soon. just in time for me to tear it all down and start again I'm sure...

Looks good and the lighting in these pics is nice. Fender is good but the bars need to be changed out soon.

Progress looks killer... If you decide to off those bars let me know. I've got some Biltwell trackers I may be interested in swapping. www.behindbarsinc.com to see how they look on my sporty.
