2016 GTL arrived
My shipper picked up the new to me bike last week and delivered it yesterday AM. Open trailer and of course it's been raining for days and days so first order of business was to get it indoors and dry. I spent a few hours servicing things that needed it. Full brake system flush (8800 miles and the fluid was in rough shape as well as 1/16th" of crap in the rear reservoir...do this every year, folks), check brake pads, lube a sticky wonder wheel, set tire pressures, install Vizi-Tec brake flasher, put the battery on a tender as the bike has been sitting since last October (owner was in an accident on another bike and can no longer ride), etc. General disassembly of panels to get familiar with this process. Then on to cleaning this thing. Lots of nooks and crannies. Ran through using all the menus, radio presets, etc. and of course staring it and giving it a few revs to listen to that lump do its thing!
Making a list of things to order:
Might have rideable weather tomorrow so maybe I'll get to see what everyone loves about these cruise ships.
If anyone has suggestions on spares to have on hand, mods that are "must-do" types, please post them up!
Don't mind the mess in the shop. Still in construction mode, winter to summer switchover mode, generally messy person mode.
