I changed the numbers on my odometer. Took the old numbers and added about 40 to them.

if it ain't broke, fix it till it is
My seat is a pill to bolt on too. That is why having battery issues is all the more frustrating!

YES!!!
I did the same thing as you did, plus reset the tripometer to 000 when I changed gas too...

Just a short trip to town for a couple quarts of GN4-10W-40, tractor/mower parts, meds & milk,

reading about it being tooo hot seams foreign to me.....at the moment I have a warm hat and vest on with another frost this morning... a couple degrees above freezing now, going to be a nice day but not hot

Shortest day was yesterday so moving towards summer now


I did sit on the bike to see if I could find a spot for the Garmin GPS that looks ok..... Or I may just use the cell phone and fit a USB plug to power it... still riding the dry weekends and the occasional night though

106*F..too hot to ride for me. I'll do into the mid 90's, but after that it is not fun. I'm hoping for the upper 80's in the NC mountains in July/August. Wishful thinking?

Yes and the first day of summer for us on this side
We`re looking at shorter days, whilst you`re seeing longer ones...
Strange how that works...

I`d RATHER have cooler temps to ride, but my Bike is my favored mode of transportation
I`ve seen 113 in traffic stopped on the interstate is the highest I recall...
I`ll ride in the "cool of the morning or go watch the sun set and ride into the night, this time of year in these temps...
The truck is MUCH warmer to climb into than straddling the saddle...
