I thought about plugging it for practice.  Then common sense won out.
I thought about having to push it out of the garage  if the plug didn't hold.

New PR4 mounted today!
You could plug it for practice now, and see it from both sides.

New SM chain buffer, chain and counter sprocket on KLX being converted to SM. Ready to roll, just have to wait for the freaking ice to melt and rain to stop so i can go try it out. Can't wait to take it for a spin.

Put a new battery in the Bonne. Whoa, do these things act F'ING weird when the battery is dying. It sure as hell didn't diagnose like a battery.  :facepalm:

On a modern BMW if anything acts up the first question is how old in my battery?  If you didn’t replace it this year or last just do it. It’s cheaper than a dealer diagnosis.

What did you do to your bike today?     Nothing

I rested the snow brush and ice scraper on the saddle bag while I shoveled the 2 inches of sleet and 2 inches of snow from around the car.

Waited for dealer to get to my bike for service.

They were nice and called me yesterday to let me know they weren't gonna work on it. My bike was in the storage area waiting to be wheeled into the shop. They were worried they'd drop it in the snow, freezing rain and high winds getting it to the shop.  I was good with that decision. :/
