Mirror aid

I wanted to see where a leak was on my bike but is hard to see under the bike. I went to a local beauty supply and bought a mirror with 3x magnification and now I can shine a light thru the mirror an inspect the underside of the bike. I can see the wear on my rear brake pads easily Plus I can use it when I trim my mustache. Here are a few pics.

Must be one heck of a mustache to get the image blocked.

Hello Peg
I`m not as beautiful as I used to be. here is a pic of the moustache is kind of hard to eat a burger with it. I started growing it in March this year for the Distinguished Gentleman Ride 2019. Last year my two son`s and I accompanied a friend that has been thru prostate surgery and this year we are doing it again. I had invited my younger son who lives in the US to ride last year and he is coming again for this year ride. My friend is a motorcycle enthusiast and a Triumph kind of guy as he owns a few. We have a group and the plan is to do the ride for as many years as we can. Last year about 400 riders showed up. Here are some pics of the ride also. I`m the guy on the red Street Twin My son is behind me in the black and gold Thrux and to my left on a Honda Fury with the white helmet my other son. The guy on the black Bonnie is my friend and his wife.

Have you recently spoke out against Gov. Ricardo Rosselló by chance? Because your pictures are still blocked.
