    Congratulations on your first oil change! It's a big deal, because it is the first step towards being more self-sufficient on maintaining your bike. Many people never get up the courage to try...

    I feel the same way. I've hit some pretty high temperatures and only a couple times, have I felt any extra heat coming from the engine. When I did, it seemed like I was in a cross-wind and instead...

    At 30,000 miles, I felt like my GT really smoothed out. There had been a vibration in the rpm range at 3500-4000 rpms. After that, it was gone. Of course, each bike is different.

    I looked for a thread I'd made about a year ago for oxytotl who had problems posting pictures. The post I made had step-by-step instructions. <sigh> I couldn't find it.

    Jim, welcome to the forum. Thanks for filling out your profile and including your location. So many new members don't think it matters, but it does.

    I understand what you feel like. The location makes a difference too. Here in the Seattle area, the rain is usually a light rain. Occasionally, we get some downpours, but not often. Where you...
