What maintenance/mods/farkles did you do to your Strom today?

- I cleaned and lubed the chain.

- Installed my new mirror extenders.

Proper motorcycle training is like wearing a helmet. You can ride for 30 years without one and make a case that you've never needed it. Until you do but then it's too late to make that decision.

None - but...

I bought the ducting and fittings to route some central heat into my garage to make it a pleasant place to work on the bike - does that count?

I watched a YouTube video on how to use my new chain riveting tool, Only a month or two before the snow melts

I lubed the air filter and put it back in the housing , then wire-tied my new longer brake lines and all the wires I had to loosen in order to install bar risers.
My Russell day Long Seat should go into production this week , and my new Holan panniers are waiting to be picked up in Rochester new York.
And it's freezing shitty weather out .

Not all my lucid moments are consecutive .
