    Wish I were mechanically inclined. I rode her and patted her tank.

    Today I added some miles, and I'll add some more after work.

    But I do have a couple threads on recent acquisitions detailing work, tricks, and plenty of photos:

    Kept it high and dry. It's done nothing but rain the last two days.

    Most recently: added Ride-On sealant to the tires.

    Can you please tell us what it is, and what it does ? I do, but maybe some other people don't, so please don't make them Google if you can explain here what it does. It's the purpose of the BB & thread isn't it ?

    So, it is now here 7:15, in about 45', I am getting back to the Ninja & finish what I started yesterday, then...I will go & RIDE it, ha !

    Cleaning your bike allows for "in-depth" inspection of various parts. Always a good idea.

    On Tues, I received my package of hand guards and frame sliders for the FZ-09 (MT-09 in Europe, Ninja).

    If I feel up to it, I may install them this weekend.
