    Uff... so unmotivated today!

    I had planned to change my oil/filter, drain my coolant, flush and bleed my clutch fluid today. Have everything I need on hand... and I just became "unmotivated"

    Planning on pulling off the lower cowl just to get to everything under there a lot easier... and that lower cowl can be a bitch to reinstall. So want to do the aforementioned all at once.

    But.. It's such a nice day outside... all I want to do is ride

    Only 15K on the bike at this point... maybe I'll delay until 16K and then do the spark plugs as well. Do everything in one shot... if I can get re-motivated

    Somebody help me.... To ride... or do maintenance all day?

    Go ride, many would say (myself included) the some of the things you are talking about doing would qualify as over maintenance at 15K.

    Go ride, another 100-200 miles won't hurt anything...its a machine, it doesn't monitor the odometer and then put hands on its hips like a spouse...

    If it makes you feel better, it is a gorgeous, blue sky/puffy cumulus cloud day here in the mid 50s...and I have six FC of wood to stack...and I am about to turn on episode one of The Vietnam War...wood can wait, so can the drip edge installation on the veranda!!!

    I'll take a ride tomorrow.
    Current ride:
    2013 F6B Standard, black; purchased 10/8/15
    Current mileage: 19,300
    Additions:
    *Angrystad, glovebox key knob, center stand, Tridium LED fog lights, foot wind deflectors, Ram mount, 12V fairing pocket, Baker wings, heated Corbin seat
    Current Wish List (subject to change):
    Remote saddlebag release, Helibars or Kury risers, some sort of footrest, Garmin 660 GPS
    2018 Miles:

    You could put the stuff in your saddle bag and ride over here and we could do ours together if you want.

    I recorded The Vietnam War series and decided to watch one episode. Big mistake. I ended up watching 6 hours, and I am not even halfway through! Better get some riding in!

    My wife is watching that.
    Looks informative and I hope it is as truthful about everything as possible.
