Like the Pifflemaster says... No pictures, it didn't happen.

Bah. I was too busy working on it all afternoon. I can take a picture of it sitting in the garage?

I noticed quite a bit of rusty sediment in the gas lines, so I drained the tank and removed it - it'll get cleaned before it goes back in for springtime.

Also spent a bit of time on the CL175 this afternoon - put the rear brake back together with the proper bolts (not the farmer bolts that were on it), and pulled the cap off the centrifugal oil filter (now that I know the trick for removing it) and cleaned out a bunch of sludge that I'm sure dates back to leaded gas days.

Anyone want to get together for lunch?
How about the Canad Inns, Polo Park, Sunday December 08 at 11:30.

Sounds like an excellent idea! We should be on time, as opposed to B&L's 15 minutes late arrival.

The party is over

Damn! There's snow outside... actually shoveled the deck already this morning. Glad I went for a quick (but nippy) spin in the country yesterday on the KLR.... probably (sadly) the last one of the year. Looks like we'll be trying out the snowblowers sooner than expected.

Couple inches of new stuff on the ground here this morning and looks like still more to come. We have had a inch or 2 of snow on the ground for a couple weeks actually. It almost went away yesterday but I guess it is welcome back to winter.

Sad day

Put the KLRs away. Had pretty much zero traction on the street... although I could probably still get around, the thought of sliding into harms way bothers me

Carl, was no +7 when I went for that ride late afternoon... was 2 when I got home. I sure noticed reduced traction yesterday, and I've got to be so careful not to fog the visor. Challenging.

Could be up for that luncheon - great idea
