Yanked all the multi color LEDs off that one of the previous owners installed. Added a couple of RAM mounts.

Bleeding the linked brake system on the VFR.    I think it is the most dreaded maintenance procedure on any bike I have owned.   I don't like dealing with brake fluid to begin with, however on this bike there are 7 bleed ports, 2 primary master cylinders, and a secondary master cylinder.   Plus you need to remove the front left caliper, the muffler, the rear wheel, the rear caliper, and unbolt and prop up the gas tank.   The process covers 9-1/2 pages in the Honda shop manual and requires a liter of brake fluid.    I have had this bike for almost 20 years I still need to get the manual out to get this procedure right.     :o

Replaced the front tire on my Majesty. I can't believe how quickly the last 1/3 of tread disappeared on the old one!

Wrecked it. Playing on the trails. Front tire went on the wrong side of a slickery stick/log/tree thing on a slippery loamy wet downhill. Bike went right, I went straight. Did a little ninja roll and ended up beside a tree on my butt.  Any faster would have been bad.  Shifter took the brunt of it. Way twisted in and a little down.  Gonna need a new one of those.  Kim didn't see it tho so it didn't happen. 😁

Fixed my new Harley. A socket wasn't in the connector all the way and backed itself out breaking the connection on the 5V reference circuit causing all kinds of interesting codes not to mention a major coronary.  :eek:
sometimes WTF is the appropriate answer
