You're on vacation! Get back to sight-seeing;)

to answer your question though, the bike is good! not much to report as I'm just putting a few miles on it while I ponder cosmetics. i DID put the side-stand back on the bike this weekend. I didn't realize how much I would miss it until it was gone;) I also had to tighten up my left rearset - the damn thing came loose and wouldn't let me downshift. Luckily I was almost home. It seems the bolt doesn't get a lot of grip inside the peg, I will try to replace next time I pull the swingarm...

in the meantime, I've been cleaning the carbs on a honda CB550 I have (thanks again for the loan of the UC, Renner!) - trying to get it running good, but never fear, the beemer is always watching...
