Getting cold here in Seattle-area. Starter was squealing.



Cleaned and re-greased with white lithium grease. No more squealing.

Good and Bad

The Good - Slapped on one of these and went for a little ride (to O'reilly's) - nice addition. No more concentrating on having my toes pointing forward for fear of slipping off the brake pedal.





The Bad - Always a sad day performing this ritual

I added some reflective stickers to the side of my right pannier.

I'm planning a trip to Alaska this May so I'll be riding though some of the western provinces on that trip. I'm not sure when I'll be traveling through the eastern provinces, but it is on my riding bucket list...

oh, and as for the states I've visited, I rode in all of the states since last June, with the exception of New York, Vermont, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Washington (all places I lived in or near and owned a motorcycle prior to moving to California....)

I added a touch of white to my new beast.

I decided to try 3m vinyl wrap because I am rather indecisive and I can see myself changing my mind at some point.

But for now I'm liking it and think it came out well.

Unless you are considered a felon for committing misdemeanors in the US.

100,000 km and figured something out

Just rode through 100,000 km, did the service and finally figured out that a thin wire through the u-joint to hold it up makes fitting the FD input and the drive shaft back together a snap - just slipped out the wire before closing it up.

You are right! Maybe when he gets tired of scenery he will ride Holland.

Well, I just finished 2 days of giving my GS it's annual winter going over on the lift table. Last winter was pretty major, getting all of Alaska out of the nooks and crannies. Last summer's major trip was to Colorado, with several down to Missouri thrown in. I spent alot of time riding my 1200 GT, which is in at the dealer right now getting the 18,000 mile service. So 2 days of the GS on the lift allows me to really clean and check out the whole bike, make adjustments and lube where need. I had a mounting bolt to replace on my Dalota Motorsports bash plate, so I got that taken care of. But for the first time, I did a semi spline lube. I wasn't experiencing anything that was a warning that it needed to be done, but it has 50,000 and I have never done it. My Service Manager taught me this so I gave it a go. Basically, you remove the starter, take all the slack out of the adjuster ( 1100 GS ) and tie the lever in place with a tie wrap. You can now see about a 1/4" to 3/8" of the splines looking thru the opening. Push the plates back with a screwdriver to expose more. Put the trany in 1st and slowly rotate, dabbing the splines with new Honda Moly 60, using an artists paint brush. Worked like a charm and I had then done in about 15 minutes. Buttoned it back up, off the lift and back on the Battery Tender for a couple of more months. Every winter for the past few years, I think about selling the pig and trying something else, and every year, when I button it up, I come to my senses and realize just how much I love this bike. He'a a pic before the detail started.

Installed rox risers. Wished I'd done this years ago. Much better riding position and I can now stand on the pegs properly.
