Bike Maintenance Weekend

This weekend has been all about bike cleanup and maintenance. I got all the dirt bikes out and fire them up. My son Ethan and his buddy came out and motored the little Kawasaki 110's around the yard. I picked up my BMW from Bens in Watsonville, too.

My wife, Kimber, and I took a little cruise up Old San Jose road to the little store at the top of the mountain where we had a great lunch. I'm trying to figure out the little details that make riding more fun and less butt-breaking. My observation so far is that the little F650GS is a great bike for one person and short 2-up rides, but if you want to make the wife happy you might be better off with a larger comfy cruiser... I guess that means I'll be adding another bike to my collection next summer ;)

And then I pulled the KTM out of the garage and dropped in a new battery. A few months ago I left the lights on and killed the battery. After that it would never hold a charge. So I snapped some photos with my iPhone and headed out to We All Ride. I take a lot of pictures with my iPhone and it really helps me when I'm looking for parts.
