Last minute spring maintenance?
« on: April 01, 2014, 09:14:18 pm »
Is there anything you've been putting off that needs to be done before riding season gets full swing?

Front break pads. They are in a bag, in my shop next to my tools. Only thing I need is motivation.

The warm weather is keeping me on the road, using my back brake as much as possible. :whistle

Yes, get my right leg as strong as my left    :beg

The bike is ready to go, but I need to get a bit of repair work done to my right leg ( total knee replacement ) to get me ready to go.

Riding season is all year (except for a few days now and then). I mostly just ride, not a lot of time for maintenace. Get Curt for that stuff. he loves it (must, cause he is doing it all the time).  ;D :banghead
Ride Country Roads - a lot. :-)

He likes wrenching more than riding. That's why he rides a ktm.  :34

I had to replace my rear brakes again. Which is odd since I replace both at the same time last time. And, the fronts are still around 50%. After I did the rear brakes I serviced it. And, then rode it to Maggie Valley via NC 209 aka The Rattler/Shiner's Run.
