nate6966 31,970 miles
Installed a new Stebel Nautilus horn. They were on clearance from Stebel for $25 after shipping. Compressor is behind the left side cover, horn is in front of the rear wheel.

Also cleaned and lubed gear shift linkage.

The Dunlop Elite 3 on the rear is still looking great.

It is nice. I also added 4" daymakers to my Cobra driving lights... I still can't decide if I can see better during the day, or at night with these lights!!!

nate6966 29,200 miles (5k miles for the 2018 season - not bad considering I parked it at the end of September when Dad died)

Brake and clutch fluid changed. New battery. New incandescent headlight.

Time for new shoes!

nate6966 Installed a throttle lock last weekend. I'll be trying it out a bit this week, heading to Montana. Gotta stay warm, but I know I'll be wishing for temps like this in just a few short months. Highs will be around low 60s, morning lows in the upper 30s.

I also got some new gloves - TourMaster Polar-Tex 3.0 from Amazon (sale for $74). They better be good, most expensive gloves I've bought.

This trip will put me over the 5k miles mark for the 2018 season. One of the best so far with this bike!

nate6966 28,000 mark was reached today. That's almost 4k miles for this season so far.
The brake light switch on my handle bars (front brakes) is acting up intermittently. I tried cleaning it and dielectric grease, but still intermittent. No way to pop it open without having to glue it closed again. I'll probably order a new switch and may replace the connectors on the ends of the wires.
Other than that, I've found that I'll get 42-44 MPGs when I find ethanol free fuel. May not be enough of an increase to justify the additional cost, but there's the added benefit of less corrosion causing ethanol and a smoother running bike. I'll keep using this stuff whenever available. I found an app called Pure Gas that maps where I can find ethanol free anywhere in the USA.

chuck_VTX F I still wonder why.. AMSOIL changed there name from years ago...

it used to be spelled AMZOIL... I was a dealer in the 1970's to the 1990's.
and also advertised 12 months and 25,000 mile oil changes... and that is LONG GONE.
