Every Dark Cloud Has a Silver Lining
My dark cloud was when I dropped my bike while moving it around in my garage a couple months back. The silver lining is, to facilitate repairs to my damaged fairing I had to remove practically the whole shooting match. I’m really used to working on naked bikes, this is the first full faired bike I have owned since my 1992 GSXR750. And before the VFR, this has been the only bike that I have owned to be ensconced in ABS plastic. I know I am somewhat slow, but a picture is beginning to form as to the reason I normally ride naked bikes. Besides the fact, most naked bikes appeal to my sense of aesthetics. And as the word procrastination has a prominent spot on the tag line of this blog, you may have surmised by this point, I have a penchant to put things off. Removing all that bodywork is not what I consider a knee slapping good time. I gather putting it all back together is going to be just as fun.
