Checked air in the tires, pushed the starter button, and rode over to Barber's Museum for the day.

I bought a 2003 Bonneville a couple of weeks ago from an estate auction and it finally arrived from Maui. She hadn't run in almost two years and was not prepped before she was put up.
Yesterday I picked it up from the harbor.
Gave it a badly needed washing
Changed the oil and filter
checked and topped off the brake fluid
lubed the clutch cable, didn't really need it
Pulled the gas tank to de gunk it
Changed plugs
Charged the new battery
Installed m bars

Today
Pulled and cleaned the carbs
Reinstalled carbs and gas tank and took her for a spin a prone the block

I have a little bit of backing at idle and when I get on it it bogged a little. I have some work ahead of me but she is up and running.

due to a break in the rain - I de-winterized the bike, fitted my gel seat (as the stock is out for modding) and took it for a good rip. It may be sunny, but it's bloody cold out! Tomorrow is normally a day off, but I might be conveniently called in to work for a few hours...

moved the headlight 2" up and back to fit an EMGO 1/4 fairing.
Not 100% sure I like it but I'll give it a try.
Saran wrapped the windscreen, tank, and rear fairing to avoid scuffs while noodling around the bike with handtools.

As age and its evil disciples creep in I want to take a couple of more extended rides before the pain of the road out weighs the pleasure. From Virginia to the Barber Museum is at the top of the list. Hopefully next year, from what I have seen it is Mecca for folks who truly love two wheels........

Downloaded new map into the ECU !

Well, technically this was last night.... but I got the cable from the UK, downloaded the TUNE ECU software, read the directions carefully, took a deep breath, connected everything, and downloaded the new 20507 map (for the aftermarket silencers), vs the old stock map. Then did the adaptation procedure, and went for a quick test ride! Everything was perfect, Didn't notice too much of a difference, but figured I really should get this done, since I've been running around with the TORs since April. I have checked the plugs to make sure it wasn't running too lean, but they have seemed fine. Anyway, the TuneECU program is really pretty cool, it sure has a lot of diagnostics and other stuff, too.
