Made new handlebars, but screwed up the dimensions so they're 75mm longer (per side) than the old ones instead of 50 mm like I wanted. ::)

Oh well...

New chain, painted F3 rear rim, new sprocket on F3 rim and new sprockets on stock rim/countershaft, raised forks a wee bit (10mm drop felt like too much for me) and cleaned it up a bit.

I took a 250 mile ride and visited an old friend that did not know that I bought the bike.

Had a pleasant afternoon catching up with old times and took the long way home on some nice slow twisty back roads. I say slow because it was the first time I drove this route, it will not be the last time ;D

Left mine locked in the garage today.

In the last week, I

-washed it   :eek:
-lubed and tightened the chain
-filled the tires with air
-rode about 100 miles to nowhere in particular yesterday
-thought about swapping my handlebars from SM2s to a pair of Spieglers

Pretty exciting week.   ::)

Just got back home from a weekend trip - so not a thing. Moved it around in the garage a bit if that counts

I made her sit...alone...in the dark garage...while looking outside at the beautiful sunny weekend dreaming of twisting clean blacktop and long sweeping right and left-handers, accellerating hard out of the turns in third, fourth, hearing her beautiful voice scream above 7,000 rpms with the wind blasting through her....um....headlight.

(Sorry my beauty I was away this weekend. I'll make it up to you....)

I fabbed up a quick release (sort of "luggage locker" like) hard tail bag. Will post pics and a how-to in the next few days.

Today I just rode it. But at the weekend I primed half the body panels and rebuilt my bellypan bracket, that's got to count for something :)
