I slipped out this morning to run into town to buy oil and a new filter for the bike..... Walmart is still my store of choice; I normally pick up some Rotella or 10w-40 that meets my engine's specs.
This time, I bought the generic 100 % motorcycle specific synthetic..... ~$8.40/quart, plus my Fram filter. Should keep me good for a calendar year, no matter how much I ride it.
Knocked out the change while I was running the grill today. Still have a fresh half quart after starting the bike and filling the filter. Should cover any topping up I may need to do.
That's fresh oil, fresh tires, fresh forks and shock, fresh brake fluid, new chain and sprockets..... Should be good for the foreseeable future.
Battery is less than 2 years old, too.....
I'd like to get to the valves and do another adjustment; that's going to have to wait for me to feel well enough to do it. When I do, it will be new plugs, refresh air filter, and correct the clearances on the valves. Probably Mid September before I have the time and health to do so.
Id like to say I care about the cosmetics enough to replace the damaged plastics..... TBH, it still looks good at 10', which is good enough for me.
Maybe after I've been through the radiation therapy, around November time frame I will think about what I want to do, there.
