Atta boy! No more worries now?

I didn't say anything at the time but I took one for the team on our ride the other day. A small burn blister in the end knuckle crease of the right ring finger. You'll never guess how--- unscrewing the air hose from the Slime compressor. Whatta dope, eh ? There's a pair of pliers right there under the seat!

Ow, hate to hear that! Will be mindful since I now have one of those compressors. Have not gotten a chance to ride it much but so far so good!

Took a nice ride on my Seat Concepts seat, since work killed off my MXON trip (It was not the company but me who decided that I should stay as we had some issues on a project and I felt I needed to be onsite instead of managing from vacation) This whole maturity thing really cuts into the fun some weekends

Anyway the Seat Concepts seat works very well for me, I know its not a RDL as I had one on my ST but for the FJR this seat works well for me got me in a comfortable place on the bike which the stock seat did not.

Got it serviced.

Then moved the bars with risers from the middle position to the rearmost position. Put on Grip Puppies...that slight softness and extra girth feels great!

Put it away for the year, time to investigate a new left hip joint. Some days now it's impossible to walk without a cane. I used to make fun of old people and suddenly I am one! Oh well, life's hard sometimes.

That's the spirit funflyingguy

Took a 69 mile ride. 45 degrees, misting at times. Had my heated jacket liner on maybe 60%, my heated grips inside my handlebar muffs alternating between 1 and 2 heat wave thingies on the dash and was snug as a bug in a rug.

Best of luck, Russ!! A few months of recovery and rehab, so git 'er done early and be ready to ride in the spring.
