Well Montezuma and I finally got the Oil "Nut" off my 2014 and changed the oil on both vehicles on Friday....a hammer and chisel did the trick, finally...what a pain in the ass and cheap POS that bolt is, if you{like me} tightened the damn thing one to many turns....:eek:

So yesterday{Saturday} me, with my new bolt $16, and Nick with his new Bark Busters, new front Michelin T63{he got 7000 miles off that} and new stock rear {7200 off that}, about $250 total{plus another $90 to have the tires mounted} set off for a ride over to Amish Country Indiana...few dirt and gravel roads in Western Ohio, but plenty of gravel, and mixed road, along with dodging a lot of Amish Buddy Horse Poop, just 20 miles away in Hoosier Land{that's why their taxes are less}, making it a bit more of a challenge....I got about 80 miles in, Montezuma Nick about 100...prefect riding conditions...78 degrees, low humidity, plenty of sunshine, and a nice breeze, make the 2 1/2 cruise pretty nice....

As for my tires...the T63 has about 6000 on it and is still good for the rest of this season...while the rear will last till next Spring as well...both should be good for our Upper Michigan ride and Big Bend....being the Cheap A$$ I am, I don't want to change them until I have to...I'm still pissed about the $16 Oil Bolt/Nut :rolleyes::boxing:

If you get a close up of mine...not so clean, and the tires especially are looking "dusty"...just that the Blue hides the mud, dirt, ect...very well! ;)
