What did you do to your bike today?

I washed and polished her up.
Then took her on nice little 135 mile putt.
Now I'm gonna build a fire outside and sit
and drink some wine. See ya'll,
Ride safe!

Now 2010 V STAR 950 T
Former bikes were
1982 Yamaha XJ650 Maxim
1977 Harley Iron Head Sportster
1970 Triumph 500 Hard Tail Chopper
4 wheels move the body, 2 wheels move the soul

That sounds like the perfect day.

I did a few mods today, completed the helmet lock relocation to the sissy bar, added my new custom speedo face, washed and polished the bike and then took my son for a ride...another perfect day in Vstar world

Oh how I envy you.
I rode to work in a dense fog then 14 hrs later rode back home in the rain.
I'm glad your day was better.

going custom. waaaaaaaaay custom. totally one-off. i've only ever seen a couple bikes that are close to what i'm getting. will take about 2 weeks to complete and will post many pics once it's done. bike goes into paint in 3.5 hours.

Yeah, I hear it's kinda warm down your way, my folks live by McAllen and Mom likes to remind me of the weather (), don't want to be washing the bike in that. You should be riding it, instead of sitting inside on the computer.

Got up to a toasty 54 today, and was a balmy 26 when I left for work this morning. So what did I do to the bike? Rode it.

You must be digging in the archives tonight, bevo. Thanks for keeping good threads alive.
