What did you NOT do to your bike today?

The thread "What did you do to your bike today" has almost 13,000 replies. Wow. BUT... it has 461,000 views. I thought about those 448 thousand viewers that did not reply: we looked, but did nothing. Are we slackers for doing nothing? Maybe. Have we been left out? Yes!!

Calling all "slackers" out there to contribute. Here's things I did NOT DO (to my bike today):

1. Every year, I read all the posts about better lighting but I still have the original.

2. Not quite as often, I read the posts about horns. Once every year I check mine and it still goes "meep". If it stopped going "meep" I'm not sure what I would do. Probably nothing.

3. My seat seems OK. If I changed it, it might be worse.

4. My bikes are in storage for the winter. I have not removed the battery, I have not lifted the frame. I have not drained carbs. Hope is OK, isn't it?

What did you NOT DO to your bike today??

I didn't even look at it . Or the battery tender. Truth. My wife wants to know if I have a fever. LOL !

I did not take my warrantied battery back for an exchange like I was going to do. Maybe today... can't ride it anyway. Rain for the next 8 days straight.

I didn't by that nice trany chrome trim I've been looking at, truthfully it's been to cold to even linger in the garage long enough to look the bikes over although last time I looked I did have a small layer of dust on them.

I did NOT run the replacement power cord for my GPS from my right side cover up to my handlebars, I've been procrastinating on that one for about 6 months.

If I posted every time I did some thing. You guys would get tired of me quick. I have not done any thing yet today. I didn't start on making my wheel tubeless or pull the triple tree. I am a slacker too

I still need to swap out the shocks and get a fork brace. But, since the bike is parked for winter, I can slack off for a bit longer.
