Dorito mobile is back in action!

After this little expensive learning lesson, she is back off her perch on the lift!

There were two problems: 1) the brake adjuster was too tight 2) the new brake adjuster had a slightly different angle on the adjuster.

Now to put some miles on her before we leave in 1 weeks for the Pine Barrens.

I got my new ignition switch in for the DRZ....now I just need to figure out if I try to find the stock plug to fix the PO's wiring job or just live with it. Seems wrong to get the new switch in and then cut the plug off. I just need to get it back together so I can ride it some more so I can get comfortable that it's reliable.

It also looks like my Aerostitch pants gave up the Gusto from this past weekend so I need to see if Morton's has some matching Klim pants this weekend. I am not going back to a rain suit!

I also got the forks raised back up on the HP2 and fixed my GPS mount as well...a pretty good night for wrenching I must say.

Yard is firming up nicely. Might need to try out the new course

Today, I was just using the bushes as a slalom course, practicing no/slow turns on the Dorito machine. Seems like little DR has been spoiling me, and not making me use good skills.

Sigh. 3rd world problems.

Hit up Waffle House en route to Roanoke. Apparently Mrs. J4S doesn't know what to order at this fine establishment.
