I've been out quite a bit. Trying to get break in done. 100 miles short and it broke, well crank position sensor failed, yesterday afternoon.

I wish I have been working too much.

I've been riding a little. I might have put on 150 miles over the weekend. It's averaging mid 40's up here. I am getting really bad gas mileage. I seem to be using the throttle a bit more than I should.

I'm probably putting it away next week when I took a week of vacay.

I was out a little bit this weekend, got about 160 miles in. I don't ever recall riding this much, this late into November in previous years. Definitely nice though. I still have the final ride to the storage yard when it comes time to put the bikes away for the season.

Winterized everything last week, made room in the garage so the bikes did not have into a storage unit this year.

I took Caveman to my work where we did the same thing we did last year.

Into the heated garage

We brought some wash/waxxy supplies

Cave's always encouraging

Nearly done

At work, we washed, clayed, polished, and waxed the bikes. We already had seafoamed full tanks of gas. This way, when we rode home, we got the seafoam in the fuel system.

Once home, and after about 4 hours we had both bikes completely serviced. Including new oil in all 3 holes, clutch and rear belt deflection adjustments, and new gaskets & o-rings everywhere. Then I covered mine on the lift.
