It is winter after all.

Road is covered with chemicals so the bike is covered waiting for warmer weather.
Sorry about the cat.

Heat wave coming! I should be able to ride by Wednesday! I dont worry about the left over salt/thawing chems getting on the Burgman, I just rinse my front and rear calipers when I park it at work and get back home. That thawing stuff made my front Helix caliper so corroded. Lesson learned I think. Now I will not take the Spyder out till the roads are clean. That thing is way to complicated and hard to clean, and kinda fragile. The Zuma is my baby and will remain protected from the horrible realities of life! And the dumb cat did return.

Can spring be far off?

Some warmer temps got me motivated to get going on some maintenance.
Loaded up the Coyote an headed for the speed shop where the bike will get some much needed care.

Fee lya ozarkman. I just did the rear tire and brake on the Burgman. Corrosion was just starting to set in so some of the hardware was tricky to remove. Needless to say, I was successful! Got everything weather proof now. Stupid, nasty stuff they put on the roads! Worse part is I rinse the front and rear brake with a quart of HOT water each during yucky roads when I get to work and home. Sometimes I miss my old dual drum Honda Elite 250. Then again, the exhaust rotted away on it and the rims would get corrosion along the lips and leak air!

If it's a daily rider and your riding winter roads it is what it is. Wash and lube is the best you can do.

The Coyote has been sitting in the garage for a couple of years and just decided to get it rolling again.
Took it to a local shop that will go through it for me and give it life.
