Finally got it out for a ride. I've had shingles the past 2 weeks (what a PITA that disease is. If you haven't had it, get the vaccination....) so haven't been able to ride. I had to run an errand in my lunch break (working from home today) so I thought I'd take the bike. Seeing as though I knew I wouldn't be riding it I had put it on the tender. I don't usually do this when I leave the bike in the drive, so when I jumped on it from the other side I didn't realize it was still on. I took off and round the first corner some workmen waived me down and pointed at the back of my bike. SH!T the tender was dragging along behind :. Luckily I had only gone about 100m and nothing was damaged other than a few scratched on it. unplugged it and pulled it off, put it in the backpack, thanked the workmen and rode of nice and calmly, for a few blocks, Had an old lady do U tun in front of me at snails pace, then decided to have fun the rest of the way.

Got home, put the bike back in the drive, put the tender back where it should go and did not plug it into the bike - I am riding it in to work tomorrow and don't need that to happen again in the morning.....

Just a winter cleaning.

Just gave her a thorough cleaning and chain lube & adjust. Putting some tires on and a oil change in a few some new rear brake pads. I do have matching black and gold rims. I damaged my front gold rim...rotor actually while playing with an R1M at a trackday. I have a spare gold rim and more oem rotors. She's a real looker IMO
