Talking what did you do on or to your bike today?

just like the title says, what did you do?

i adjusted the apes a few inches forward to get the wanted riding position. I think I missed the mark as i still have a little more fine tuning needed to get my arms just right.

then rode 16 miles to work, a bit cool but the air was very clean and fresh.

Raining. Attempted to put on a different rear fender, but my seat didn't fit right afterwards. Reinstalled rear fender and took advantage of the missing tins, and redid the rear wiring, soldering and shrinkwrapping all unions. Not a total waste.....unless you take into consideration the $125 rear fender I bought, cut fit, and now won't use.......

Checked the oil, then looked disappointingly at the cracked rubber hoses going into my intake to justify blowing off changing it out for another weekend...

Then attempted to twist my belt, with the suspicion that it's a bit slack,and slapping against the top belt guard.

Thought about taking the belt guard off, so I don't have to hear it slapping anymore.

Rubbed the rotor, to see how smooth it is, and told myself that I need to sand it.

Then rode to work...looking at it and thinking I might have to wash it, as an out of town visitor is wanting to go on a ride this weekend....looking at the smear of the remains of bird shit, that is more akin to pterodactyl than bird, that I wiped off before riding home yesterday....glared at a few birds, and continued to work.

Got to work, and pushed on the rear tire, to see if it was low, and to see if I was developing another ridge in the middle....admired my very small chicken strips, and went inside happy.

Turned around once, on the way in, to admire my dirty bike, and thought "Hell yeah, that shit is MINE!"
