OK. So what DIDN'T we do today at the Bike Cave? WOW! 7 bikes in one place: 6 were GS500's!
jmill: SS chain guard, Givi rack, cleaned wheels, cleaned and oiled chain, checked tires and more
bluesmudge: cleaning. Rewired power for GPS
adidasguy: cleaning engine for Phenix. Helped everyone else. Blue helped install and wire a GPS onto Suzi.
jmill and I are going on a ride Sunday with the Eastside Sportbikers. We made sure our bikes were ready for a back roads twisties ride. This is rated as a "novice ride" which will be a good way to get back into group riding and refresh our riding abilities for the twisties. First group ride of the season for both of us.
Installing Givi rack
Rack installed (note: still a plastic chain guard, dirty rear wheel)
Went to my office to pick up the mono-case and a front fender mud flap for jmill (note: SS chain guard on jmill's blue GS500 and the case. rear wheel now clean)
After a ride around Alki Beach and Lake Washington, stopped art their friends house where there was another GS500! Wow! 4 GS500's all in a row.
After all that, I'm so glad I had the GPS on Suzi. I'd still be trying to find my way back home if I didn't have it.
