OK, some other forums I am on have a thread like this, and it seems to be interesting(250+ pages). You can simply just say what you did to your bike for the that day.

I rode it to work. But 2 days ago I gave her a fresh oil change, new front brake pads, and adjusted the chain.

I'm cleaning off water spots as I got caught in a nasty pop-up hail storm/heavy downpour yesterday around 6:30pm.

Was under an overpass at 70/670 for at least 15 minutes while it poured down rain, wind blowing hard enough that I had to keep the bike steady. So much water going down the drain right by where I was stopped. 

It was crazy...never had to stop before but it was bad.

I installed a new front tire. Nothing beats the feeling of new tires on the bike.

I mean, I can think of one thing right off the top of my head, its close, but I'd still say it tops the feeling of new tires...... ;)

Put a little over 100 miles on it so far, planning on riding for an extended period tomorrow morning provided work doesn't screw me over :)

The V-TEC makes for good control - I remember my old '98 ZX-7, which was also inline 4 but no V-TEC. I just remember wanting to constantly gun the thing. With the V-TEC the engine is pretty torque'y and behaves pretty good in the lower RPM range. And it's pretty good on gas to boot!

New front tire, new rear tire, put her on the dyno 2 weeks ago, hiccuped at about 150mph so I pulled out the laptop and hooked her up to the power commander to see if we can add some fuel at that point.

I wonder what forum that could be.Are you considering YFO?Now that will be an Epic ride.

I rode Ebberts pass and Moniter Pass yesterday.

I don't know, id love to make it to YFO, but that would be 2 weeks vacation doing several 600 mile days. I am going to EOM and have a spare bed.

Decided to educate myself today at work on suspension settings. Came home and adjusted preload, dampening, & compression on front forks and dampening on rear shock. Feels like a new bike.
