    Default I'm baackk

    Bought an R1150RT then a Venture fell in my lap, widder lady not far, it had been husbands friend's bike, he kinda inherited it, then died in a car accident, been mostly sitting for a long time. As new Metzlers with a 99 date code..... dodgy no pictures ad called she said battery on tender, lights lit but wouldn't crank. When I got there it started right up. 40K miles just 200 in last ten years.
    Didn't really want it so pulled my forelock and lowballed she held her hand out, damn. Went back home got the trailer and loaded it up.

    Put on 250 miles changed front tire this morning. added Broview S5 H4 LED headlight (from my private stash), been cleaning and scrubbing, had engine oil leaks but for now riding it seems to have cured them. Everything works! Front air suspension goes down kinda quick but even that seems to be improving a bit. Re-soldering the control board connector fixed the CLASS.
