I have to say it's been a rough few months around our house.

Back in August my Grandmother in-law passed away.. She had several strokes and had been slipping for months. Her passing was expected so we were well prepared..

2 weeks ago I got news that my Grandmother's health was deteriorating and she had been moved to Hospice care. 4 days later she passed away. Thankfully she was a organized kind of lady who didn't want to burden her family. She had set up a savings...

Darn car tried to strand me at work.

Posted 10-03-2012 at 05:42 PM by sschering

Battery cable clamp on the CRX broke today when I was at work.. The darn thing was hardly making contact and didn't have enough power to crank.
I had nothing but a bobby pin I found in the glove box to work with..



Bobby pin FTMFW! It got me home.

I got a new riding friend

Posted 07-27-2012 at 09:34 PM by sschering

I got a surprise today.. One of my old friends called up asking for a ride so he could pick up his new bike.. He's done dirt before but this is his first street bike.

He got a 2001 SV650S.. Good choice for a first bike I believe..

I told him to join up here. Hopefully he'll post up soon.

Doctors are ruining all my fun.

Those pesky Doctors are messing with my riding season again. They carved a suspicious bump out of my arm yesterday. Now I can't push my bike out of the garage and up the driveway because I might tear the stitches.. This sucks.. I'll be rocking the CRX Si for 2 weeks.

LePan TC970

Posted 07-15-2012 at 10:32 AM by sschering

A company called LePan makes a 10" Android tablet that fits in most Ipad cases and sells for $199..
Don't get one! I've gone through 3 of them in 9 months.. They have a crappy power port design that ends up breaking so it won't charge
anymore..

I've had 2 fail this way.. spent a month waiting for a replacement after the first one broke.. 1st replacement arrived with a defective SD slot.. They took another 4 weeks to get a 2nd replacement out.. That fucker broke...

Shims and horns

Posted 04-13-2012 at 11:59 AM by sschering

I finally got the 79 GS1000 ready to ride for the season.. Well almost..

I finally checked and re-shimmed the valves..
It needed it in a bad way.. all but two valves were less than .0015".. Now they are all between .0025 and .0040 and it starts runs much better..
It still needs the carbs synced and I have to put new seals in the leaky tach drive..

While I was messing with it I replaced one of the sad factory horns with one I salvaged from an...
