mostly cleaning and clearing dirt from the frame; checked the tension of the drive chain / rear tire alignment.



things on my to do list: ( not alot but being out of work gives plenty of time and little cash)

bleed the front brake - tire not turning, will tear down if need to free the caliper

change Oil - looks like grey sludge on the dipstick....

bought online from Motorcycle Superstore a new key/ Ignition (to replace the old one which had no key)., and at a local Kenects Auto Parts 18" pipes to connect to the header pipes.
The Ignition arrived a couple days early and came with 2 keys, great having a spare.
*pics after I get the new stuff on

things are really looking good.
