What?!?Thanks for this nugget! I have been there several times as a kid, but not in many years and I had no idea there was motorcycle museum up there.

pulled the front fork tubes out of the Scrambler, removed the fork boots & fitted Thruxton fork seal protectors...looks better to me.

Didn't do anything to the bike today, but had a decal made at work and added it to my helmet.

Dragon Power!


Local "Toys for Tots" motorcycle parade this weekend and it's going to be near 60 degrees!

Did the ignition re-locator from BC as well as their lo-pro seat bolts. Got the rectifier re-locator too, but going to wait until I decide what to do about bars/clip ons.

The high in Minneapolis was 45 today, warm enough for a last ride to warm up the bike, get the swarf circulating, drain/refill the oil and do the filter change. Cleaned and waxed the chain, sprayed the chrome surfaces with Fluidfilm, Seafoamed the gas, and put the battery tender on. In other words, it's over.
