  1. Sorry to hear this! Condolences to his family!
  2. Here are the pictures I took at Marcarl's Ontario meet and greet!Me(sleepy2 )-Ray (Paysaw)-Bob(steamer)-Wayne (Wizard765)-Carl(Marcarl)-Ben (saddlebum)-Ryan (Wayne's son-in-law)-Megan (Wayne's daughter)-EvanGary--Carl & BenEvan,Ryan & Bob Ray , Din(xv1100se),Carl, Me (sleepy2)&Ben Wayne's car,Gary's truck Ray's BMWRyan's bike Bob and Robin's new to them trike My bike Don , Ray and Wayne Megan and Ryan Robin , Ryan and headless Carl Robin (Wayne's wife)Marca and Reni Reni and Don Reinhard (ReinyRooster) hope I got everyone's name right and if I did it is first time. Thanks to Reni for adding me into a few pictures! Was a good turn out (yeh could have been a few more bikes and people but we do the best we can) good food and conversation!
  3. Another good day for a ride. Went to Kitchener today to pick up spare battery @ReinyRooster had to help me out . Was going to go and have a coffee with him but his hunny-do-list(we all have them!)(I got most of mine done so I had time to go for a ride before finishing them) kind of put a damper on it(not that I didn't want to get him in trouble but we had a good conversation for a few minutes anyway! Lots of idiot drivers out there! He said he is going to try and make it for a couple of hours on Saturday to catch up on old times!!
  4. Charged up battery after it died last week and got it tested and said it was OK so put back in. Then this week drained(by bleeding) old clutch fluid and rear brakes. Rode for a couple days then had son help bleed front left caliper(too hard to reach by myself) on my bike lift I bought a few years ago. Couldn't turn handle bars to level out master cylinder on bike table because of wheel chock clamp. Was having a slight extra pull to handle bars stopping which caused a slight imbalance. Back brakes seemed not to grip as well so ended up re-bleeding clutch,front brakes and back brakes, now everything seems a lot better(pads all around were good) Phantom wanted me to pick up her prescriptions so I told her I had to take bike for a test run,showed up over an hour latter to -----where were you----- told her couldn't just go there and back(as we all know). Then today our hydro was out from 7am to 1pm for infrastructure(new lines buried) so she told me to go for a ride and pick up her cigarettes(Reserve) Heavy drops leaving town,got to 1/4klm from destination and started to rain. Waited on picnic table 15min then got on and rode 20klm to next destination(Princess Auto) where I picked up a few things. Was going to meet Marcarl but clouds were really black that way so drove North to bypass and made it to a restaurant when it started to downpour. Stopped and had lunch then went out to put rain-suit on. After putting on had a light drizzle then NOTHING the rest of the way home(as usual) Probably going 50klm to meet up with @ReinyRoosterand @XV1100SE Wednesday or Thursday!
  5. Wished I could have been able to make it but weather and other circumstances have stopped me. Hope the one's who make the trip have a GREAT TIME!!!
  6. I think I have one and will check to make sure!!
  7. Took batteries in to check them at battery vendor and he said mine from bike was OK but a little low(was12.8 night before and 12.2 when I took in) Only 3 years old! Checked other one which is over 13yr old(I use it to run my lawn tractors to plow snow) and it was a little low also. Bought new charger that charges(trickle) regular 6/12v ,regular(acid wet),AGM etc and charged them both over night and seems to have taken charge so will monitor over next few days.
  8. Just got back from battery shop and there tester didn't say bad it was just low. 12.2v, it was 12.8 last night. He said to put on trickle charger again for 12 to 24hr then should be OK! Battery only 3yr old by receipt. Was trickle charging with a Battery Tender but they never went to green showing full charge so I went and bought a new one by Master Craft that does 6v-12v Normal battery acid(wet),AGM and No Maintenance . Will try this for now. @ReinyRooster what were you thinking price wise in-case this doesn't work?
  9. Thanks for the heads up!!!
  10. @Marcarlwas way away from you.By Tillsonburg! Charged battery and load tested and it said BAD! Will take in tomorrow and double check it!
  11. Put battery on charger and got it ti 12.8volts then used my battery load tester and said it is bad. will take in to battery supplier tomorrow and get them to double check it. It was bought before COVID(maybe 2 years prier,will try and find receipt to verify)
  12. Was a great day yesterday! Went to a few yard sales in morning went home to see wife for her lunch then decided to go for a 5oklm ride to buy some bulk things(raisins,peanut and some sweeteners). Put phone on charge on the way there with no problems. Went into store then decided to go to next city to do some more shopping(had my utility trailer ) and BUZZZZZZ CLICK,CLICK no start!!!!!!!!!!!! Tried a couple times and same thing.Carry a booster with me but that didn't help so asked an older couple that came out if I could get a boost but they said they have no cables, I told them I had a set so he tried . Didn't work!! Didn't want to hold him up by letting his car charge my battery so called CAA! 2 1/2 hrs later a flat bed showed up. Got him to tow bike home as didn't want to take a chance getting boost then have it quit on way home. Said I didn't have coverage to tow trailer so had to leave it locked to picnic table. Positive I made sure I had right coverage to tow trailer also because when I got it I told them I towed a trailer to the U.S. and needed to be able to get trailer to wherever I needed to go.(have to find original papers to check) Ut battery on charger over night and will check out what went on, might have to replace battery! Driver made sure bike was secure and stopped shortly after going 1/4klm to make sure it was secure! Went back to pick trailer up with son's car(after some persuading)(he has no problem borrowing mine)to save gas!
