Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

If only that applied to me... Vacation's over and I'm back to doing the daily commute. Only on the odd chance that there's nothing planned, the weather is not acting up and-and-and do I get a chance to go riding for fun.

What little time I get to spend on the bike also seems to go into fixing small things that have cropped up over time. I've got a leaking stanchion seal that needs fixing - and this weekend I got around to nothing more than investigating a 'knak'-noise apparent under heavy braking. It turned out to be the steering bearings being loose. I have absolutely no idea how this has happened, but now I've had them regreased and retightened - essentially transforming the ride. I've been wondering why I didn't feel comfortable with the bike, going into corners. Wiggly of sorts. Unsteady. That's all gone now. A total of two hours spent. Only this morning did I get a chance to test it out.

I need a vacation.

Amazing stuff!  I think it's actually the daily commute that makes things add up without you even noticing.  The mileage on my bike hasn't been going up as fast now I don't have as much opportunity to use it for commuting.

...but 100k km is still only 62k miles Smile
