Gonna do some cleaning and checking, and I guess I gotta stop useing bacon grease for polish. And although my bike smells like bacon, no I'm not a cop. LOL. just kidding

If you don't get in more riding this year, you'll be a year older next year.

Reminds me of a time I rode to my cousins, and it was one of the rare times I drank a lotta tequila.
I decided to crash on his front porch, there was a couch on the porch nice hot summer night, with nice cool breeze, perfect for snoozing....

The damn couch started moving, IT was full of mice....or something.

Had to go in house where his 180lbs mastiff molested me half the night!!!

Old biker told me once, It's not how many brain cell's you kill, but how many you had to begin with.

Never could figure out how they managed that without being detected. When I had a problem with my clothes dryer last year, we discovered the dryer vent hose had hundreds of acorns stored inside as well as a really neat lint house and a ton of mouse crap.
Uh-oh , here we go again with the dryer vent. shoulda vented it inta the garage, then the little bastids would have had a harder time gettin' the acorns in there!!

My bike has never been put away for the winter, it's in my main garage

but not covered and the garage is the primary entry and exit point to my house,

and damned if I didn't have an electrical issue and when I removed the electronics bay cover,

there was mouse debris, not a nest, but a stash of seeds and gnawed on hulls,

and the mouse piss had turned some of my fuses and fuse sockets green with corrosion.

Guy on the V-Rod forum found 2-3 lbs of birdseed inside his air-box cover.

Luckily the mouse had not gnawed through his filter, the guy rode the bike

and found it sluggish before he found his air-box was completely filled with seeds.


Once you establish yourself as an eccentric,
you rarely have to explain your actions.

I try to avoid putting anything in my shed that the mice can use as nesting material, they love building materials such as cloth, paper, and cardboard.

Keep the shed swept clean, don`t give them anything to work with.

I was backpacking with a newbie long ago at Yosemite. When we set camp, I told him to put any food in the bear box and open the pockets of his pack at night and leave it next to his tent. He decided to put his whole pack in the bear box instead. In the morning, a bunch of food, drink mix and TP was chewed up. He pulled his pack out, we emptied the box and inspected for holes and found none. Left for the day and same thing that night. Next morning, same thing, more food ate up. As we were packing up to leave, he jumped back because a mouse hopped out of a pocket on his pack. The little bastard was in his pack from his house the whole time. And every time he did what I told him not to do (don’t put your whole pack in the bear box, just your food) he thought he knew better, we went hungry.

If you don't get in more riding this year, you'll be a year older next year.
