What did *I* do today?  I fixed the snapped wire some nucklehead did yesterday when trying to install a speedo healer.

I then proceeded to take it out to test the thing, and got Miku pretty salty.

Well not today, but over the weekend. I changed oil + filter at 18,000 miles, last change for both was at 16,000. Bled the brakes and replaced the fluid with Motul DOT5.1, much needed. It's like night and day.

I pulled the front wheel off and removed the tyre, installed a new front tyre straight swap Pirelli Angel ST, (old for new) not as easy as I thought it would be, anyway I got it done.

Balanced,cleaned rotor's, pad's, calipers, wheel and spacer's while I had them off. I managed to shoot myself in the eye with brake cleaner, nothing bad to report other than a lesson learned. Don't hold the caliper right in front of your face, ya fool. (yeah I took the straw off)

Next will be radiator flush of the system. What do you people recommend?

Strapped on my new Kriega US-20 Drypack and commuted to work via bike for the first time ever. That bag is a black hole and I love it.

I just got my bike back from a short stay at the dealer for a new set of Michelin Road 5s. These tires feel great in general and in the rain as well (started to rain after I left the dealer). I only did a short ~25 mile ride but they'll be well broken in by the weekend.

Corrosion-resistant aluminum radiator guards serve to prevent stones, bugs and other debris from causing damage or decreasing system performance.

In about 3 hours I'm about to go on my first ride this year for our Polar Bear Grand Tour group my dad and a few family friends are in. I missed the first 15 rides but I'll be able to make them up, and plan on doing so by the deadline of the 13 or 20 April. That'll be a nice way to add at least 1,000 miles (1,600 km) to the bike.

Nice day for a ride too, about 35°F (1 2/3°C) out right now. I'll put a couple hundred miles/kilometers on the bike I'm sure. Plus I'll be doing a good bit of riding tomorrow as well before it snows.

It's definitely worth it just Google search the "Polar Bear Grand Tour" and they are the first site that'll come up. You don't have to join to participate in rides but if you do it's $25/season and you can make up the rides you've missed like in my case by just taking a photo of you and/or your bike at the location or showing a receipt.

With currently 10,630 miles (17,107 km) I have made my current FZ-07 the one I've put the most miles on. My first 2015 FZ-07 I had to sell when I moved to Delaware in 2015 and got rid of it with 10,600 miles (17,059 km). How many other members have owned more than one FZ-07?

The Road 5s kick ass. I just did a ~350 mile (~563 km) ride down to Lewes, DE to make up another ride for the Polar Bear Grand Tour and about 2/3 of the total ride was done with a steady snowfall. Longest time and distance I've ever ridden in the snow, there were no issues with traction as the roads were treated well and it just felt like a normal ride in the rain. Max temp was (according to the bike) 39°F (3.8°C) and lowest was 34°F (1.1°C). Just my toes got a little chilly and my right hand got really chilly as my heated glove doesn't work anymore.

Funny you mention that. My heated gloves also crapped out on me. I sent them back to gerbing for repair

Finished converting my 2018 MT-07 reflector headlight to a projector HID headlight using Morimoto products. A lot of small things needed to be taken care of before you can get the final result, but it could be done and it was really worth it. Total cost was around $170.

Here you go. The angle eye is too bright that I had to dim a lot to show how it looks.
