Received and installed my new Corbin seat and also installed the GPS mount above my stock display unit. (The GPS install turned out to be much more difficult than I expected)

I think my bike now has all the mods that the one I crashed in late november had. I won't say I'm done, that milestone is never reached, but I can commute, ride for fun, or travel with this bike as it is.

And the nice weather is right around the corner.....

Installed a new SW-Motech Evo City 15 litre tank bag, very well made and perfectly contoured for the shape of the Tracer fuel tank

I took advantage of the internet and my current home office situation to order a bunch of odds & ends for the FJ.  Chain & sprockets, some trick Rizoma handlebar risers, fluids, filters, a few tools...   $500 later, and I have some projects to keep me busy over the next couple of weeks.

I spotted some corrosion on my mirror stalks, so off they came, sanded, corrosion treated, primer and the only black I had in the garage was a Ford car paint. Turns out it was slightly metallic so now I have twinkly mirror stems 🤪

I lubed the chain... and then spent a sunny afternoon up at Mount St. Helens.

It is coming up on the 40th anniversary of the eruption, I was 13 years old and remember watching the ash plume shooting up into the sky as it happened.

I've always been a bit fascinated with the eruption event and have watched several documentaries and you tube footage over the years since.  Truly an awesome event with terrible consequences for some unfortunately.

Quoting yourself seems a bit egotistical, but it’s the easiest way to tie this together...  :)  

Revzilla for the win!    I ordered a random assortment of 14 items yesterday at 2:00 pm (US Central Standard Time), and the entire order was on my doorstep today at 5:00 pm.   I’m impressed... stunned, but impressed.    

I now have project plans for my stay-at-home weekend!

A handful of little things, mostly:

- Rizoma handlebar risers.   Looking for a slightly more sporting stance, and these should be perfect.  The fact that they’re a work of machined art is an added bonus.  

- Install the Galfer steel brake lines I’ve had sitting on the shelf for far too long.   Today’s delivery included Speed Bleeder bleed screws for the calipers, and plenty of nice new Bel-Ray Super DOT 4 brake fluid.  

- K&N air filter and new plugs.  I’ll do the APS adjustment when I’m in there.   Oil & filter, too.  

- New chain & sprockets are on the agenda, but the new kit hasn’t arrived yet from Sprocket Center.   Maybe tomorrow, but probably showing up early next week.  

If I’m still looking for something to do, my Raptor-Interceptor street fighter build is always waiting in the wings...  there’s no shortage of things to keep me occupied.
