Another 500 mile chain adjust and lube on the Marauder. Methinks its time to change the oil on it too. I'd start racking the miles up on the GS, but the on again off again idle issue has me creeped out. No idea why since it fires right back up.

Got an inch of rain last night, but I still tried to go exploring after work. Just about buried it in some bad mud.

I think one of the carb bodies is worn out. I gave them the second setthis time. For the 20 minutes it runs, it does so like a striped ass ape.

Sunday I rode the Vmax about 25 miles to bring my grand total to about 150 miles this
entire year. Rode it to drain the tank of gas from last November, put some Stabil in, topped it off, and back on the tender it went.

Great riding season this year.

Rode her for a little bit Saturday then did one final clean up before she hides in the garage for winter. I'll pull the li-ion battery, still need to get a smart battery tender.



Fresh wash and cleaned the tires, looks brand new

Just bought another new Triumph Street Triple. My first one was a 2013 in crystal white, this one is a 2014 in phantom black.

Just finished taking off the reflectors on it, gaudy rear view mirrors, and stock levers. I installed ASV levers, finally got the fly screen and belly pan in the mail, and got those installed as well. I need to get the bike out of it's break in period, and put my Scorpion slip-on on it, and get some new handlebars, put my CRG bar end mirrors on it, and get a fender eliminator... Still have some work to do, but I am happy with it for now, until I want to spend more money on it



The first one, for comparison:

I replaced a broken rear brake bracket


Also installed some sliders that will hopefully be there for no reason.
