Waiting to get her out of the shop, so I can put on the Ladybird full exhaust and paint.

Bled the brakes, adj'd chain (and tried new motion pro chain alignment tool, $15, liked it), and went on a 60 mile test run. All good. Track day Monday!

Haha, thanks Dutchy! Going to Thunderhill, CA upper central valley, predicted to be well over 100 degrees F (oops, or ~40 C to you). I will probably have the oldest bike on the track!

Had my fork seals replaced and washed her up. Also after being off the forums for a while due to a new baby last summer forgot how to add a picture to my post. Any thoughts? Thank you.

I use imgur as a hosting site and then post the BBCode link. It's code begins with [img], has the https link to the image, then ends with [/img]

New to me, so overall check

Just picked up a well cared for 2002 with 25,500 miles on the clock. Currently going through moving parts of the rear suspension link, a little dirty down there and needs some tidying up and grease on the bolts. While I've got the exhaust off I'll set the SAG, preload, bleed the brakes, and finally touch up the frame and swingarm where there are some minor scratches and chips. Can't do big things yet as it's summer and time to ride, though we are getting into the oppressive heat and humidity here in Charlotte N.C. Time to head to the mountains!

Got my new Power RS mounted up. The 190/55 makes the bike a bit more stable on the side stand, a plus! Im hoping for more positive turn in, as others have experienced. Going to ride it to work tomorrow
