Busy day today. But not rushed busy. Just out doin' things busy.
After getting the house in order this morning Kody and I went and got my truck washed, put some air in the tires, and had the oil changed. When we came home, I got a bucket of warm water and my artificial shamois and wiped the truck down. I'll tell ya, it's a nice sunny day but it's still colder than hell out there!
So with the truck all set, I decided to fire up my bike since I haven't started it all winter. Of course the battery was dead. Now, I've not done any work on my bike since I bought it so this would be totally new. I decided that I needed to charge the battery in case a warm day came up and I wanted to ride. I've wanted to to take the strap off the passenger seat anyway so I thought what the heck, let's do some wrenchin'!
It really wasn't that tough. I took the seat off to get the battery out. Three screws and it just slides right out. Then I was able to take the strap off but I had to remove the right saddle bag first because there was a nut on the inside of the fender I had to get a wrench on. Again, three nuts and it was off. I got a wrench on the nut inside the fender and the strap was off. Sweet!
I then took the battery out and started charging it and when that's done I'll get it all put back together and fire it up.
Then, tonight we have a party to go to. Some friends from Northwest are putting on the first annual "Winter Blows" party. It's a hall party just a few miles down the street. We should see some friends that I haven't seen since I left Northwest so it should be a blast.
Now tomorrow? That's probably going to be a "recovery" day.
