Good afternoon, all! Bought my first TW about three weeks ago and bought number two last week. Bike #1 is an '06 with 1100 miles and #2 is an '89 with 800 miles, both in excellent shape. Been using the free resources from the forum and spent most of Saturday wrenching on the bikes. Oil, filters, and new plugs for both. A new 15-tooth front sprocket plus X-ring chain for the '06. Pulled the Yamaha rack that came with the '89 and am painting it with bedliner paint before I put it on the '06.
Here's a gift from the previous resident of the TW. Left me some nuts and a small bit of fur but left the filter completely intact. I'll be sure he gets his deposit back.
I'm moving from a spot out in the boonies to a house downtown so the '06 will get me down for all of the small-town events that are always going on. I bought the '89 for my son who turns 13 today. Here he is changing his oil.
I think we're going to run up to Long Lake or similar this weekend for camping and some 2-tracking. This is a major step down in power to what we're both used to but I think we've spent too many years focused on the next turn instead of the great wilderness around us. Makes for great bonding. I'll try to take some good pics of our trip.
Nice to meet you all.
