    Saturday the 19th

    Think I had less than 7k this year. Which is sad because I had that in one trip last year.

    So Verizon finally did something pretty nice for me. I recently switched to the unlimited plan(damn kids) and one of the reasons I decided to is because with 5 lines they offer $10 off per line with auto pay. No problem! I already have auto pay. That actually made my bill less than before. Well got my first bill for the new plan...and....no discount. So obviously i was initally pissed. Go on the Verizon online chat and come to find out that discount only applies to auto pay with Debit or Checking accounts.(it said right on the term that I missed) mine was set up on credit card. So really "my bad" for not catching it. The person say "no problem, well give you a $50 credit this on this months bill an that will give you time to change your payment method for next months" also they issued at $50 devise credit to my account for my troubles and misunderstanding. So with customer service like that I don;t mind paying the slightly higher prices.

    Where it all started

    This is where the touring bug hit me hard. This was 10 years ago packed up and ready to ride to Deals Gap for the first time. Can't believe it wasn't all that long ago and now i have probably 90k miles under my belt and so much more of a rider than i was then.

    Where it all started

    I enjoyed everyone of my bikes. But I can honestly say (now)I don't care to have any of them back. There isn't really anything out on the market that i'm lusting over either. If I would wad up my C14 today I would probably just go get another one and set it up the exact same way.

    winter bike ritual

    If it carborated I'd use the stabilizer in the gas. FI bikes your fine. Only because the small amount of gas in float bowl can turn and evaporate quicker. In a sealed system its good for many many months. If a FI bike will be stored for maybe 6 months or more, yeah use it there too. But no, it won't hurt either if you need piece of mind.

    winter bike ritual

    Wash it. Put on center stand. Plug into tender. Make sure tank is atleast half full. That's it, it's always ready to ride. I'm not changing oil unless it's due. I'm not flushing fluids unless its due. I'm not removing the battery, that's what the tender is for. I'm not putting tires on wood blocks, that's silly. I'm not covering it up because that just invites critters to call it a home. We are parking them for maybe 4 months. Not like its a very long period of time. People way over think this. Only other thing ill do is put some fresh decon out in the garage.

    Couple more quick pics. Even the wifey loves rockin the connie. And this is where the motocycle thing began at first. In 1998 i bought this 1990 GSXR 750 all because my buddy let me take a spin on his 94 Katana 600 at a bbq. When we bought our house in 01 i sold it for financial reasons. Till i bought the TL in 2007

    Hopfully you see this tandem more next year. Think I've got the mrs. amped up a little to try some light touring next year on the Injun. She wants to make the gap trip next year and think she might ride it down(maybe)

    To the old connie that you all know pretty well. I seriously can't explain how much I love this bike. I can honestly say ive never loved a personal posession anymore in my life than i do with this turd. This bike has kept my sanity intact and my passions alive.

    Ofcourse made a couple trips down with the old Vstrom(OR Whore). The wife had her Vstar then. It never made it to the the gap.

    Brake light problem

    No problem. Needed to get the Injun out anyhow. My solder job has a 10ft/10 second garantee.
  19. I will do that. Sometime next year when I change tires again. Have 50 on there right now, and a 55 on the rack i'm going to next.

    You would think a short would pop the fuse.

    Brake light problem

    You don't get it figered out stop by this afternoon (im home at 330)well look into it. Sounds like dirty connectors maybe? Only other thing i can think of (not sure what type of bulbs it takes) but some of them it is possible to put them in backwards.
  22. Then my bike defies the laws of physics... I have several examples on the shelf at home.
  23. All I know is I never have any chicken strips left on the taller 55. And can never get rid of them on the stock 50. Draging hard parts with both.
  24. Yup. I can use every cm of 55 when I run them, a 50 tire it is impossible to run to the edge. Usually have 1/4" chicken nuggets left on them after draggin parts.
