New Toolz!

Since I allowed my "nephews" to move in I've had issues with my tools.  Many have just up and disappeared.  Others are broken or no longer work as they are designed too.  My frustration is complete but I have just mostly remedied the problem.  My new toolz.

Of course this doesn't replace some of my special fz1 tools that they've destoyed.  Now, I keep my tools under my pillow to prevent unauthorized usage!

Thanks for reading,

FZ1 Mod: Hard Luggage

My budget solution:  Chivi.

Every since last year's rally I've been obsessed with replacing my soft saddlebags with hard luggage.  When I bought the saddlebags, I researched hard luggage and realized I didn't want to invest close to $1,000 on something that I believed my softbags would do just fine.

Maintenance: Fork Service

10 April 2016:  Fork Service Weekend.

I’d delayed, postponed it for as long as I could but the time had come when no more delay were possible. Delaying it not because I didn’t want to do it. There were some lupus reasons and other life reasons that caused them but I finally got myself moving.

DIY Heated Gear Upgrade

Since I launched my blog 5 years ago with diy heated gloves, much better technology is available to the diyer.  When it was time to remake my gloves a couple of years ago, I chose not to because the wiring was annoying.

Trip Report: FZ1OA Octoberfest

October 9 – 11, 2015:  FZ1OA Octoberfest

The gatherings with the members of the FZ1OA have started to feel as much like renuions than rally.  I often say it's my FZ1 family and the rallys are a family reunion.  This one felt more like that than any of the others.
