Decided to adjust the valves and change the oil even though it's been way less than 3000 miles.



How many times can you "stabilize" gas ?

It's the bike's fault. I have 11,000 miles on it since March 2015.

Glenn, there's only one person here with the power to ban... I understand he would never ban for penis pictures...Now, you pull that vagina monkey shit here and I can't - uh, he can't - be held responsible!

As for the spandex- I never wore it either on my LeMond or my Harley...

But more to the point.

Your beetle has more miles this year than mine! LOL :lol:

Back on the road and already embarrassed a guy in a Challenger.



After getting oil pressure and filling the carbs... it started right up. I dropped the tire pressure from being over inflated to prevent flat spots and check the lights. Then it was ready for its first ride of the season. It was like i drove it yesterday, everything worked.
