the weather & my motorcycle 

I've broken out the Suzuki and rode her twice so far this spring, once Sunday and once yesterday evening. Saw a biker at the damn and i couldn't wave because i was at the stop sign and had my hand on the clutch, but i smiled real big and he smiled real big right back. I could tell he was thinking "that lady should be wearing leather not an office sweater" but he was nice enough to smile back anyhow. It's tough keeping the ride at Grammy's house! Can't just hop on whenever.

So here's the thing .... the carburator needs a good cleaning and i have the parts kit to do it, and it can't possibly take more than maybe an hour, but i REALLY should have done it over the winter because now i dont want to take the carb off because the weather is so nice and i just know i'll want to ride it as soon as the carb is off! It's not behaving too badly yet, just needs more air than usual (has a manual choke so i can compensate) so i think I'll just wait until i have an actual garage to work in. :)

The house closing is still set for the 13rth of April but i haven't been able to get my plumbing inspection done. The seller had to fix a toilet valve first and i haven't received word on when that will be done. *sigh*. I've decided to wait for the chimney inspection until the fall when i'll be wanting to fire up the fireplaces.

It's supposed to be high 70s today!!!! Woot!!
