I came home and spent about 3 hours in my garage working on my bike. Jaxon bought me a mini-fridge for my birthday, so there were plenty of cold beverages in my garage!

I fixed all electrical problems tonight. My right turn signal was shorting out and blowing my main fuse every time I turned it on, meaning if I bumped it going 75 my bike would die. Fixed!

My rear brake light was on permanently for some reason – adjusted that and works like a champ. Fixed!

Because of the low compression on my right engine, my bike has been a PAIN to start. This not only drains the battery by using the electric start over and over, it tries my patience as I try to kickstart the bike for the 20th time in Chuck Taylors. I’m charging the battery tonight. SORTA FIXED!

The bad news! I’m not so sure of this top-end rebuild this weekend. The more I look at things, the more I realize I need to build an engine mount for when I take this thing off. I don’t have a workbench. If the frame weren’t in the way, I could do the whole thing on the bike! They don’t make the pistons very simple to get to.

So I’m going to remove the tank on friday and just take a look at things. The rebuild might have to wait.. which is killing me because I really want to get my bike to 100% rather than the 75% it feels like right now. The good news is I received the replacement rings from Honda today.

Oh yes, I finally installed a left hand bar-end mirror on my bike. I’m legal! I don’t mind the look of it that much and it folds in for splitting lane, so I can reclaim the extra 4 inches it now takes up on my left side. I’ll probably buy another one for the right side for when I’m traveling long distance.

    Has Jaxon always spelled his name with an “X” or just since becoming a supermodel?

    His parents are hippies, so it has always been JaXon.

    I like JaXon. He told me I reminded him of Rebecca Pigeon once and also he never called me fat on the internet.

    Whoever called you fat on the internet was probably just jealous of your popularity, and he/she is just insecure because he can’t post anything but stupid motorcycle talk!

    I WAS JOKING, FORGIVE ME!

    TYPED SOBBING NOISES, ETC
