Default Re: Happy New Year Riders

New Years day was cool temp wise cool. We were enroute over to Carthage when we stopped to top off tanks, anticipating many places closing early...I couldn't get my tank open and the key didn't seem to be going all the way into the lock cylinder..... so I made it on back home not temping fate....Later up in the "Old Guys Garage" I got some "muck" out of the lock and I figure I broke some oxidation free the cylinder appears t obe pot metal and ther housing aluminum...several applications of WD40 and air freed the errant lock up....so for good measure all lock cylinders got a dose of WD40.....Looks like rain today,and with a relatively new tire I think I'll fire up the heater in the garage and change out the tubes from the airbox to the carbs on the old GS.
Looks as if I was right on getting the old bike out of the garage by Spring and thats ok by me......I'll give you a call this weel about the 11th...take care and best to the family.....
Enough of this talking/typing crap I'm going riding
