    Thought this would be a fun topic..

    I don't have too much to add as far as today goes, but I am planning on scuffing and repainting my tank semi-gloss black.

    Today? I rode it home from a friends house where it started to downpour last night and he gave me a ride home. Also yesterday, I washed my tank with gas at the BP station. I am a moron.

    Pulled off my carbs to send to Rick to clean out/check.

    I am also using the electrolisys on my gas tank.

    Unpacked my saddlebags from the trip that I took though Sequoia National park and Yosemite National park. Only used two freeways and they were both less than 25 miles. Only went on the same road twice, They were not thru streets. First one was Kings Canyon, the second was Glacier Point. Wish I would have kept the mileage but the Canadian speedo that I spent a small fortune on would have kept working. Now I need to clean the bike and change the oil, AHH next weekend. The Seca Turbo is actually a nice sport-tourer

    I finished-up the sculpting I needed to do to make my former Midnight Maxim's seat comfortable, good looking and no sliding forward, now.

    That and I cleaned and de-greased the whole bike getting ready to do the pimping-out it get's for the annual death-defying ride to Loudin, NH for Bike Week.

    Well yesterday I rode my baby for around 8-9 hours over 700+kms (including stops, actual time on the bike was about 7 1/2 hours)

    Great day for a ride too.. considering it's winter here :p

    Pulled plugs. Looked good. I've got a stripped screw on one of my turn signal covers, so I pulled the assembly off the head lamp mounts....Started thinking about getting rid of my bendy stays wrapped in black tape....Still thinking.

    Replaced Fuse Box with a newer type Buss Holder, Cleaned up Alternator Stator and checked Brushes, and replaced left rear signal, the old one was so rusted, the bulb wouldn't even unscrew (Thank god I kept the front ones when the windjammer went back on her)....... oh and took more Pics of her :lol:
