First maintenance

Saturday I did the 600 mile maintenance on the Vulcan 900. Well, actually I should say my riding pal Zootech did it. He is a great wrench. I really appreciate having a friend that is willing to take time out of his day to help me figure this stuff out. We met up at our other riding buddies house to do it. It is about half way between him and I. Scan and Loonette are most gracious host.

After we changed the oil and filter and checked all the stuff listed under the first service in the manual, we had a bit of lunch courtesy of Loonette, and hit the road for some riding. What a perfect day Saturday was for a ride. Scan, Zootech and I made the trip. Loonette had to stay behind with the kids because babysitting fell through. We made our way down to a stealership, Clinton County Motorsports I think, that was having a midnight madness sale. They were offering up some test rides on some Yamaha cruisers. Scan and Zootech took test rides and I elected to just hang out. We had lunch there, free food!, and hung out for a couple hours. About four we started winding our way back south because I had to be home by six cause Darcy had to work at seven. We rode some nice roads down. Across the Ceasar Creek State Park dam, along the Little Miami river for a bit. Hit a few twisty roads, then pretty much straight down 42 from Lebanon.

When we got to my place, it turns out Darcy was put on mandatory overstaff and didn't have to go into until 11. Nice. She had a new tattoo that she was showing off to us. I must say it is a very pretty piece. We ended up grilling and my brother in law and sister in law came over too. Zootech and I did some more maintenance on my bike attempting to chase away a funny sound coming from the drive train. We managed to reduce the sound and change its pitch. :) I am gonna have to did around the net to see if this is normal for the bike. If not, it looks like it is gonna be warranty time. Darcy got a call that she didn't have to come in at all. So, after eating and seeing off Scan and Zootech, we went to some other friends house and had a fire and watched a movie. Then got home late.

Sunday Loonette made her way down to Cincy and we managed to get a couple hours of riding in late in the afternoon. Darcy and Lincoln went to "session" and I had a couple hours free. It was cool to ride with her. It was the first time we had managed to get out. I always end up riding with Scan. We just jaunted around the city a bit. Riding out through the rich suburbs and hitting a quick bit of the countryside before coming back.

All and all a good weekend.

The 21mm Medela is the best fit I found last time (and even that's almost too big, I still get quite a bit of areola in there).
