Took it for a short run yesterday to pick up some H151 hose from a local NAPA. It'll hit the lift in the next day or so for a bunch of stuff (coolant, hoses, fluid change, swing arm bearing lube, etc.). have to fab a special R90 R60/2 tool for a local BMW mech, first, then it's on to MY stuff.

Rode it 140 miles.  Mozart St to Boyd Rd. to Gerald Rd. to highway 70 to Derby, IN to Indiana 66 to Indiana 62 to Corydon, Indiana to Indiana 135 to Brandenburg, Kentucky to Kentucky 144 to Kentucky 60 to Indiana 237 back to Mozart St and back home.  Twas a good day.  Sunny and about 60 with very little wind.  Was singing along to my favorite tunes in my helmet.  Connie performed flawlessly! :beerchug:  Life is good! :)

Got the first article done for the fella, it works fine, so by previous arrangement, I made a couple more.

Time to get the C10 up on the lift and get started. Another fella coming in later this week to get a bad ball coupler cut off a trailer and a new one welded in place. Has some other stuff he wants done too, but that shouldn’t hold me up too bad ‘cause he’s in no big hurry.

BMW stuff:

I took a piece of my cropped-off fairing to the local auto parts store to look for cheap paint that matches my 1987.
The old paint is from a $900 paint job that did everything except the side covers and the tail, so the whole front, sides, belly and gas tank were done professionally and match the old paint as far as I can tell.
So I found Duplicolor BFM0225 which says it's a replacement for DSFM225.
I sprayed a quick coat horizontally across the middle of the scoop.
These are the results, dry, no clear coat or wax or anything.
If my bike doesn't sell as-is I'll put this on my red, gold, & black fairing bits to make Connie look like new.
Then I'll have to jack up the bike-only price and the cycle will go on...
Anyway these picures are not before & after, they are both after but at different angles to the sunlight & camera.

FINALLY, looks like a real M/C again. Got most of the maint. items done with the exception of pulling the swingarm and lubing all the suspension points. Decided to wait until it gets closer to National time when I pull the wheel to stick on the new SR734.

Anyway, we're good for awhile.   :motonoises:

Last night rebuilt the front left caliper (the front left rotor was hot hot hot even when I didn't touch the brake), and then today went through the rear to make sure the seals weren't binding. Running real smooth on all the rotors now and good to go! That's the last (for the moment) of major problems, now it's just a matter of comfort upgrades (seat, windshield, suspension etc)  :)
It all started on a 250...
