Default Winter bike therapy

My office closes down between Christmas and New Year's.

Just got back from visiting my family down in Baltimore. This weekend it's up to Maine for the in-laws.

The time in between:

Straighten the shop, install new brake lines on the track bike, repair a busted bit of fiberglass, screw around with camera mounts, change coolant on the street bike, make the odd "vroom vroom" noise....

Quality time!

I really need to get out and straighten up my garage and put the ice tires on the KTM. Maybe I'll take Friday off...

Ohh thanks for posting this. Reminded me that I have to replace the fuel vent line on the Ducati. Before putting it away, I cleaned it and rode it to the gas station to top it off, just to find gas pouring out of the vent line. Plugged it, got home, let it finishing pissing, clamped the line and parked it. Not a big deal but I had definitely forgotten about it Lol.

I may actually have enough free time this winter to do motorcycle related things!

Plan is to buy a new track bike come spring, so nothing to do there.

I do have a note on my fridge to service the KTM dirt bike rear caliper though. But since my garage is unheated... it will have to wait until spring.
